5 things for the week

If you know of a way to help save our planet, even just a small part of it put it here. Also if you want to ask how to help, or even if you want to promote your environmental organisation. All goes here.

5 things for the week

I've got a day off today, and I've just made my weekly '5 things' list. I've just started doing this, as a family we're easing ourselves into the 'ish' lifestyle and I find it's a good thing to help me achieve my 'ish' goals.

1. Become acquainted with my local library - that will be this afternoon's outing
2. Find a small dining table and folding chairs for our living room that we have just cleared the junk from - we want a table to become the 'hub' of the room and finally have a space to eat as a family (OK this involves buying something but it does involve a big improvement to our family life in making it more communal)
3. Go to my dad's house and finally dig out my sewing machine from his garage - as I will finally have a table to work on!
4. Take my doggies for a nice long walk - I've been ill for the last 3 days and have not taken them out and I need some fresh air.
5. Get my beds weeded on the allotment

We have so many to-do lists we need a to-do list for the lists :lol:

I like the idea of the post-it notes for the jobs to do, fortunately I am old enough to forget most of them!!! pbf.

FotW - why not try freecycle for your table?
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

I did try freecycle for a table, but the only one offered was much bigger than what our living room would fit!

The doggies went out on Friday, I got my table and folding chairs, and I've weeded the beds. I will be popping by the library on my way home from work tomorrow, and we christened the table by having my dad and his wife over for dinner - all in all a successful weekend!
