My 55 things

Earlier this morning I thought that this list would start with: think of 54 things to put on a list.  Fortunately my brain woke up and I remembered that I’ve kept meaning to visit the Ilias Lalounis Jewelry Museum and given that Mr T would put this on his list of 55 things he never wants to do I should do it during my ample free time during the week.  That’s tomorrow sorted out.

When I looked back at my previous list what struck me was how many things weren’t very specific; I had a note to ‘enjoy life more’ and that’s all well and good but what do I actually do that would make me enjoy my life more?  Well let me introduce you to the horror of my middle-class hell which involves living in an enormous apartment with beautiful polished floors.  Those floors are only beautiful when you don’t spend more than a considerable part of your week keeping them clean.  For one reason or another (s*o*ld*r related) I haven’t done any cleaning since August and I haven’t missed it at all.  So I’m going to get a cleaner for a couple of hours a week to do those floors and I’m not going to feel guilty about it.  I’m going to enjoy myself.




  1. Exchange with a colleague yesterday:
    “Imagine if we didn’t work full time and were actually held responsible for the state of our houses”

  2. You blogging about the deficiencies or otherwise of your cleaner is going to make the rest of us enjoy OUR lives more.
