My lists - To Do List pt 1

This blog is primarily about my lists and how I go about doing everything on them. Therefore it makes sense to share these lists and come back to them from time to time to see what has been crossed off, what remains, and what has been added. Here is the first of five of my lists.

As we all know, there are many and varied things to do in London. Some of which are one time only events, some are regular occurrences and some are somewhere in between, perhaps only happening at certain times of the year. This is where my Time Constraints List comes in. Here I have noted things that happen at certain times of the year that I wish to attend or participate in. See below. The code should be easy enough to figure out - anything highlighted in green is effectively 'crossed off'.

I have decided that to update this, I will highlight anything I've done on the list in since I started this blog in a different colour. Purply, methinks.
