    Default Checklists?

    I'm sure that this has been asked before, but does anyone posess a checklist of things to do prior to departing for NZ?

    Being the organised soul that I am, I live for my "lists" and vaguely remember something being mentioned about this ... either in paper or electronic form?

    Ta,
    Lou

    I have doen a spreadsheet that shows month by month what I need to do leading up to departure. It is not comprehensive and is specific to my situation. I gleaned a lot of the info from others on this forum & another one as to what needs to be done. I can send it to you if you like but as I said it is specific to me and may need adjusting for you.

    If you read through this Lou, it'll maybe give you some ideas to start your list with.

    I've already done a list Lu. It's along the lines of

    Mon: Party
    Tue: Party
    Wed: Party
    Thur: Recover, look at what needs doing, go down pub
    Fri: Party

    Landed in NZ, 13th August 2008

    Jon - I think I'll just ignore that post!

    Thanks MB .. you're a star.

    Nicky, if you could PM me your list, that would be great ... a girl can never have enough lists!

    At least in my list, I only go to the pub once

    Please please please don't give her anymore lists. It drives me mad. We have lists of lists, and then copies of the lists in case we lose one or the dog eats it!

    Can't seem to send my spreadsheet either in a post or PM. Maybe if you send me your email address I can do it that way.

    Therein lies the difference between men and women I, like Lou, love lists and find it very satisfying to check things off as I go along, so I'm with her all the way on this one In fact, I think every single forum member should send Lou a list - Then, when Jon shrieks in horror and runs off to enjoy the few ( !!!! ) parties he has planned, Lou can sit at home in peace with her checklists

    Long live the list

    My own lists start out well enough, but before I get anything on them done, I complete a half-dozen other things. It looks like I didn't get anything accomplished, so I add & cross off the new things. Then I feel so much better.
