Day 12--Something you are OCD about
Lists! I have lists for everything, and more notebooks than any sensible person ever needs. I love a fresh page, and a nice new pen...has to be a black fine liner.
I have daily lists for daily chores, lists of sewing projects,lists for shopping,long term lists detailing projects I'd like to do when I have the time.
I love crossing things off my lists too,I have to scribble each item out, I tried experimenting once with a neat little tick, but it wasn't nearly as satisfying as big black scribble obliterating the words.(Sometimes I keep a big fat black marker for crossing out)
I've inherited this habit from my Dad. After he died we found a whole stash of his lists and sketches in his sock drawer.My Mum must've known they were there, but she seemed as surprised as the rest of us by the quantity.
Despite all my lists though, I'm not a terribly organised person, I forget birthdays , and this term I've lost count of the letters I've signed for school too late for my boys to take part in a particular activity...yes I know, I'm a bad mother.
