Erik, I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love writing lists and organising's getting those things done that I have a problem with :couch: :laugh: You're more than welcome to steal the idea - I find it really useful.

I FINALLY sent away the letter to Spar (a local shop here) which I have been meaning to do for ages. Going to really blast through the "to do's" this weekend, as much a possible.

God luck with your goals, folks.
