The To Do List – a resident view

The time has come, there is no getting away from it. All those jobs that you have been putting off, are too busy to do, forgot or plain just don’t want to do. At this time of ‘Self-Isolation’ you no longer have an excuse, so, hem that skirt that’s held up with staples, give the car a really deep clean, fix the curtain rail, de-moss the lawn, these are just some of those jobs that will take on a whole new level of satisfaction when they are done. I personally am quite looking forward to having time to teach my kids, I am not sure they agree, but maybe this is our window as parents to get to know our kids a little better, learn together, do ‘stuff’ together, answer and ask questions of them and ourselves. A chance to reconnect with them, the world around us and what it means to live in the wonderful place we do.
