School holidays mean doing things differently. It means my standard way of operating – making a mental note of all the things I need to do that day – doesn’t work. Too many things, and too many interruptions.
For example, I can’t decide I will do this and when I am done I will eat lunch. Because lunch happens when Little Person is hungry.
So I decided to record all my tasks electronically. Evaluating the success of this move was easy.
When you find yourself collapsed in a heap on the sofa at the end of a very long day, looking up your task list and thinking “Oh, I forgot to do that. Again.” Four days in a row. It’s safe to say it doesn’t work.
It is most likely that by the time I work this one out, Little Person will be back at school and the system will have to adjust again…..
