Long Weekend List

The long weekend (here in WA) starts as soon as work finishes for the day -and I plan to use every minute to the fullest! You already know that I hope to paint the front door in a less mediocre colour than the current cream, but here is the full list:

Boring Chores
  • Clean the kitchen
  • Clean the bathroom
  • Vaccuum/ mop the floors
  • Tidy the other rooms as required
  • Laundry
  • Dishes
These are the standard things that I'm sure everyone needs to do. Not exciting what-so-ever, but they will still take up some time this weekend. We cooked sausages for dinner this week and they splattered grease ALL OVER the beautiful kitchen so that definitely needs to be cleaned up tout de suite! This is also where the still well loved dishwasher comes into its own and gets things done quietly in the background while we get on with other tasks!

Less Boring Tasks
  • Finish painting the skirting boards in the great room
  • Final coat of gloss on the garage entry door/ paint external face as well
  • Paint walls and trim in the hallway
  • Purchase mosaics for above the kitchen sink
  • Use those mosaics to tile the strip above the kitchen sink
  • Paint the front door (inside and out)
  • Finally plant winter vegetables in the patch
That doesn't seem like too long a list does it? Definitely do-able right? We will try to cross off a few things, but the painting and tiling are priority tasks that we both want to complete sooner rather than later. We kind of ran out of steam with the renos after such a full on few months and have left the last little bits waiting to be done. And every time I use our amazing sink I look at the bare patch of wall above it and it annoys me. So I really want that done! Then, if we get all of that done, there is always the fun stuff!

Even Less Boring Things To Do
  • Take a stroll along the beach
  • Hang some frames in the great room
  • Make some curtains for the sliding door
  • Visit some second hand stores/ antique shops
  • Catch up with friends and family
  • Take a road trip (to Lancelin maybe?)
My mum will be especially happy if she gets to see me- hi Mum! I don't think you need to guess which list is more likely to be completed first ;)

Do you have any plans for your weekend? Do you like to have tasks mapped out like I have or do you prefer to just take things as they come ("winging it" as PK likes to say)?
