Well done you sound like such a busy lady with four children and all of those activities to organise! I too was forgetting things that I had to get done continuously. For some reason the iPhone reminders just didn’t work for me as I would switch them off. What worked for me and still does was keeping a diary of the tasks I needed to get done every day. Things as little as paying an electricity bill to booking my car in for a service. As I crossed things of the list and I could see what I had achieved I started to feel a real sense of accomplishment. You obviously enjoy the activities you are able to enjoy with your children,which is wonderful. I came to a point after moving house and also I have a touch of arthritis that I was so exhausted and sore that I did my first online grocery shop and found the experience an amazing time saving tool and in this case I was also in a bit of pain and suffering exhaustion from the move. Stumbling across this fantastic way of outsourcing a chore I hate anyway totally saved my very time poor life at this time. Sounds like you are doing a great job with four children and all those activities!

  • I have never done shopping on-line and don’t intend to while I can safely go to the shops. I have seen how Fruit and vegetables are banged and bruised while being put on display shelves. I don’t want food that is bruised and isn’t going to “keep” or is stale. I also want the chance to choose brands if there is a Manager’s special. I might buy it this week instead of waiting until next week.


  • I think it is a very personal choice of how we each manage our days/weeks/minutes etc. I don’t like to be to rigid but I do need to write things down, otherwise I forget.
