When I feel like life is getting on top of me, I make lists. To-do lists, to-buy lists, to-make lists, guest lists, idea lists, gift lists, the lists go on and on. Writing things down, making things concrete and visible usually makes me realise it is possible after all. It allows my brain to rest and the fear of forgetting something vital passes. This year's list isn't as long as I'd thought it was but things get added as I remember them. Each task is broken down into steps and the joy of ticking things off is remarkable. And no, you can't see the lists yet. That would spoil the surprise!
