I feel much better for writing my blog and it's good to have encouragement to get off my ass and do things. Now, if I don't get on with my jobs this weekend, I'll be letting all my friends down as well as myself (and Zairul).
Good luck with your list. A lot of smaller jobs but some of yours look like much more hard work!
