Well, it's taken me all evening, but I have made my list of everything I need to do, including the timetable for Christmas Day cooking.
(Well, everything I can think of as yet - there's bound to be a lot more added!)
It's amazing how good it feels to have everything planned out. When I actually do things is of course absolutely flexible, as long as I have them done by a certain point - and as long as I get to cross them off my list!
*sighs* I think I can relax now. Hopefully enough to actually sleep tonight!
P.S. Cat update: Minstrel's eye is a lot better, but still a bit swollen and the vet was able to see this time that there's a lesion in the roof of his mouth, presumably from another cat's claw. There's a big ginger cat who's been prowling around so it's probably him. And it might well be this that's irritated his eye, from the bottom/rear.
Anyway, I've got to take him back again on Friday - thank goodness they do evenings, so I've got a 6.50 appointment, which should mean I have time to cook and eat dinner first, if I leave work just a little bit early!
