Last week I made a major boob... I mean major - well it feel major to me!
I double booked myself!
I booked the Cub Scouts to go to a map reader course in Bristol on Saturday. 10 Cubs tramping around a Scout camp - great fun...
Then last week I thought I would double check my teaching schedule for an Arts Centre down the road... yup, I am teaching 12 people how to make a quilt in a day at the same time as I am supposed to be tramping around some woods!
I am totally mortified that I have double booked myself!
Fortunately, I have assistant Cubs leaders who are stepping into the breach and taking the Cubs to their course so I can go to work..
It did make me realise that I need to get more organised.... teaching, prepping for classes and running 2 Scout groups, as well as being a lone parent to 3 boys is manic... I need to plan!
So I have armed myself with a busy life diary which has a work and a home page facing each other. I have a calender for the house so the boys can see what they are doing.
Work wise I have a new planner to organise to do lists and a quilt planner - which is scrummy - to keep track of all the ideas I have...
So now I have a red notebook and I am starting to have a Monday morning meeting with myself again. That way I can track what I am doing for Scouts, teaching, planning and with the boys.
Hopefully I won't get caught out again!
What do you do to keep track of life?
