Have I told you before how much I love my blackboard calendar?
No, I mean REALLY love my blackboard calendar.
Quite honestly, without it, I am sure that life would be a chaotic haze of forgotten-ness!
(I know that's not a word, but it works!)
Maybe it's age, or maybe just general family busy-ness, but some days I would truly forget my head if it weren't screwed on.
Let alone the PE bag, piano lesson, & dog's haircut.
Not to mention that I have two girls who are extremes when it comes to timeliness.
One frets if she is a second late and remotely disorganised - hence the calender works for the obsessive compulsive side of her personality.
The other is almost always running late & only seems to know when it is the weekend. Hence the calendar works for her cheerful fly by the seat of her pants nature too!
Then there is the husband who is away a lot, so it works for him too.
Not for me a small calendar on the wall, or diary. I end up with things written in one diary that are not in the other for some reason.
No, I know that all family goings-on need to be written on the wall.
Then each time I glance at it I know what is happening.
Getting breakfast, check the daily happenings.
Preparing dinner, know what is needed for the day ahead.
Use the last of something in the pantry.
Write it on the wall.
Yes, it's large as you can see.
I like to state the obvious!!
Each month I stand on a ladder to refresh it.
There is just one obvious liability - if I don't remember an event to go on the calendar in the first place.
Still working on that one.
Must fly. According to today's events, it is Guy Fawkes - and that means that I have a large gathering descending on our place after work tonight for a BBQ and to watch the fireworks.
(That would be the fireworks in the sky, not Brunnel & I squabbling!)
