Simplify – Weekly Wishes 15/09/14

Last week’s wishes: 08/09/14:

  1. Alexander Technique: go for an introductory lesson. 100% completed and I have signed up for another block of four. I practised standing and sitting, and learned that I contract my neck when I stand up, leading to various tilting motions throughout the body!
  2. Family: spend weekend with extended family. 100% completed, I went to a dinner and a christening, and had a good catch-up with my grandparents and a quick chat with aunts, uncles and cousins. 
  3. Book: Read something by a new (to me) author recommended by a friend. 100% completed – I actually read two books: “Doppler” by Erlend Loe (highly recommended and very funny) and “Mother Night” by Kurt Vonnegut (depressing but also thought-provoking, and funny in places). I’m looking for more book recommendations and plan to try an author recommended by one of my grandparents this week. 
  4. Dust: Polish the flat surfaces around the house. 100% completed, I did a full dust, vacuum and mop on Saturday morning so the house looked pristine before I went away. My husband and I are both away separately this weekend, so I hope it will stay relatively ordered for a couple of weeks.

Weekly wishes for 15/09/14

  1. Trip. Set and keep to a reasonable budget while away with friends at the weekend.
  2. Alexander Technique. Attend a lesson and be aware of how I’m standing and sitting during the week.
  3. Emails. This is becoming a real danger area for procrastination, so I want to reply to three emails this week.
  4. Book. Read a library book before Friday so that I can return it before it’s due to be renewed while I’m away on Saturday.
