Early in January, I wrote a post about my Christmas plans for 2012. It is here.
As I suspected I did not get everything done on 25th January as planned but I am making progress. Here is what I had on the list.
- Sort and file Christmas cards and letters – DONE
- Make sure any contact details are updated in address book – DONE
- Update Christmas card list – DONE
- Set up complete contact list for 2012 e-cards – NEEDS A BIT MORE WORK
In conjunction with updating the contact details in my address book I embarked on another project which took me a couple of weeks. I have made sure that I have current contact details for all of my friends and relatives in my physical address book as well as my email contacts address book and my mobile phone address book. The Duke checked that he had the relevant ones in his mobile phone and we also have some that we need at our fingertips in the home phone speed dial. Now all I have to do is make sure that I update all locations when I am given new contact details for anyone. I really hope that I keep on top of this issue as I do not want to have to do the sorting and cross-referencing of the past couple of weeks. The memory of that should be enough to keep me on track.
I have also been doing some sewing today and have finished making the first 2 of my Christmas gift bags. They are not for anything or anyone in particular but my aim is to have a collection in a variety of sizes so that I will have one suitable for whatever the gift happens to be.
