For example, do I really need to 'prepare' for going back to work. I've been away for 2 weeks, and actually, catching up on my emails is something I should do in 'work' time, not at the end of my holiday in preparation for coming back. A second item from my list, hurrah. I realised I didn't actually register properly for Palace to Palace run this year - much as I love doing this event, I have so much on that maybe I could just make a donation of my registration fee, to salve my conscience and free up all that training and chasing people for sponsorship time for the other things that I actually 'need' to do. Number 3 down. I have plenty of food left over from the weekend barbeque shopping, so let's not shop after all. I don't really fancy cooking on the barbeque, so instead I'll invite a friend over who loves to do that, and we can have a good catch up at the same time, and I can potter in the garden, trimming and weeding (it wasn't on my current to do list, but on the summer wish list). I'm losing count of the things I no longer have to do. Wonderful.
So, as for being brilliant and superwoman, through the art of delegation and prioritisation, they are no longer required. Another two things bite the dust.
A quick shake and repack of the sleeping bags, washing in the machine and a sunny day to dry it all. Oh, I really don't know why people complain about having so much to do, it's easy when you know how!
