100 things

Because I've been suffering from a particularly vicious bout of 'can't be bothered' over the last few days (marking has this effect on me...), I decided that something had to be done this weekend. Something proactive.

So I made a deal with my self to get 100 things done yesterday. Not major things, just little bits and bobs. So tidying away one item counts as a thing, or putting a load of washing in the machine.

In the end I managed to get done a few more than 100 things, but I stopped counting after 100. Amongst other things, I fixed my holsters, did my handwashing, the regular laundry, tidied the Christmas decorations (!) into their box in such a way that the box now closes, caught up my diary, and tidied up a few things.

What a good idea! Of course, I was feeling so tired yesterday I'd have been reduced to counting "turning one page of a book", or "getting out of bed" as items...

Would it be possible to count each individual item of clothing put into the machine as a thing? (fingers crossed)

I guess so. But not for socks. They are half an item each.

It depends on how desperate you are. In the morning, 1 thing was quite big. By the evening 1 thing shrunk dramatically. I counted things like Council Tax papers tidied as separate from Banking papers tidied, for example.
