Weekend Ta-Dah

I have mentioned previously how I occasionally enjoy the process of writing a ta-dah! list as opposed to a to-do list. Instead of focusing on what I still need to do, it helps me to identify what I have actually managed to achieve. Here is some of my ta-dah! list for the weekend:

  • Planned the week’s meals;
  • Ordered the online grocery shopping;
  • Stood in a soaking park watching Austin play football thus improving his chances of being picked for a team;
  • Bought birthday presents for a friend and for one of Austin’s classmates;
  • Picked up Waterstones gift cards which they had reissued for me as I had lost the originals. Amazing customer service.
  • Made breakfast for dinner with waffles, bacon, eggs, and fruit as promised to Austin;
  • Read some of two of the books I am currently reading, Shadow and Bones by Leigh Bardugo and The Lost Tide Warriors by Catherine Doyle;
  • Caught up on Happy Valley;
  • Wrote a couple of blog posts;
  • Stayed up-to-date with my Line a Day Journal;
  • Helped Austin with a painting and his homework;
  • Spent quality time with Evelina in the kitchen as she baked, cooked dinner, and made lunch today;
  • Took Harper for a walk.

Not bad for a relatively quiet weekend.
