101 in 1001

101 in 1001 days

I had real plans for getting into the kitchen and baking a cake for you today, but I’m already sitting here in bed, feet up, munching on a bowl of grapes, so the likelihood of that happening is pretty low at this point…..I’d actually rather be a lazy cow and sit around fantasizing about the things I’m going to do right now than actually go do things. 

I did manage to get to the supermarket today and buy the ingredients….so hey, we’re half way there.

So what the hay am I going to blog about then??? Well it occurred to me sometime last week that I have NEVER made a 101 in 1001 list. Can you believe that? Well I can because I am so not the most structured person in the world. In fact I’m the total opposite of that. My friends are all grown ups with routine and some semblance of order in their lives….not me, routine bores me and structure makes me feel caged. Unfortunately, this means that I am not the most productive person though which drives my friends and family crazy. I eventually get stuff done….emphasis being on the eventually!

So I thought maybe, 101 in 1001 might help get me motivated to get some things done.
