Happy Thursday from dark, wet and windy Copenhagen! Errand Day in Flylady Land but feel free to pick any day of the week that suits you/your family’s schedule. Sometimes I do my Errands at the beginning of the week, sometimes I get things when I am out and about in the city. The main thing is to have your list READY so that you don’t forget the essentials. And also you won’t get carried away buying things that are not on your list – ha ha!
Let’s get straight into today’s pep talk and Flylady hygge planning mission. Grab a pen and paper, or your Christmas planning notebook, a hot or cold drink and tap to watch!
Last week I ran a few errands in the city with my Bestie, Erika from America – it was wonderful to be out in the crisp fresh air just before sunset (it’s getting dark by 4.30pm now). We started in the Østerbro part of the city, then walked along the lakes to Nørreport, finishing by Torvehallerne (the Copenhagen Food Halls). The outdoor flower, fruit and vegetable stalls are always a riot of colour – very hygge in the twilight!
Erika bought Liberty fabric for some handmade Christmas projects. Are you making gifts this year, crafting, baking – do you need supplies? Get them ordered or add them to your Errand List – the clock is ticking! I had some non-food items on my Errand List: “scratch off” advent calendars. They cost 50 Danish crowns and I always buy one for hubby, my DS23 (dear son, 23 years old) and DD21 (dear daughter, 21 years old). We never win much but they’re part and parcel of Christmas in Denmark.
These hygge planning missions are straightforward and won’t leave you feeling overwhelmed. A little bit each day, and you’ll have a calm and collected holiday season. You can find my check-off list here (a Canva template you can modify). But you don’t need a list to start: watch today’s video above, move your bahookie and start! If you miss a day or two, don’t go back. Just keep moving forward! We will have Super Missions in December…
The Flylady has a FREE planning workbook which you can download for free here. I show you how to use it in this video… (Also useful for planning a wedding, Hannukah, baby shower, Ramadan, etc)
