(Bear to do list by boygirlparty)

While I do enjoy knowing that actually I don’t have to do anything in any particular order most days out here, I tend to flounder without a general routine. I kind of drift around with no clear purpose, and spend more time than I mean to on some things, and not enough on others, and then wonder where did the time go?

So I have tackled this like I do so many things. With a list. With little tick boxes that are oh-so-satisfying (and I believe that 'nanna-nap', 'reading' and 'tea break' are perfectly acceptable entries), on the top of my clipboard of 'things to make and do'. It gives a bit of shape to the day, and I know what to expect. I don't do everything every day. But I do most things most days, and I think that's ok.

Do you have a routine? What is a part of your everyday routine?

I have lots of routines, but I love my afternoon snuggle time with my daughter, right before her nap.

I love lists and I am quite partial to some sort of routine now that I have a toddler. We have daily and weekly routines. I try each day to have breakfast, do a blog post and clean the house all before 10am, so that we have the rest of the day to play and craft, or go to swimming lessons and the library. I love ticking things off the list too. :)
