I am absolutely and completely in love with this new To-Do app called Tick. You can have different lists for different problems, which are customisable with colours and cute little icons. You can “tick” them off as things are done – the text goes grey and moves to the bottom of the list.
I live by lists but have always found making them on my iPhone a bit dementing. I still hate typing on my iPhone, (I think it might give me, or have already given me, a minor stroke), but you just cannot run your working and domestic life from scraps of paper with scribble on it. I finally realised that I had to do something more grown-up about my to-dos when I forgot to take my party shoes to a weekend away just now and had to go to someone’s smart party in my trainers.
I mean, I don’t think anyone noticed but it was quite shaming for me. Especially as it has happened before. More than once.
I recently only bought one of a pair of heels to a hen do, so I sympathise. My list would read 1x right shoe, 1x left shoe.
I love this
In the past I have gone on holiday with no spare underwear – more than once, another occasion forgot both contact lenses and glasses (in my defence had recently switched to disposables), and no party outfit for my ‘surprise’ birthday party. I think it’s because you’re so busy packing for everyone else you forget your own stuff (that’s my excuse anyway!)
I agree with that (about packing for others) but I used to do this sort of thing when I was only packing for myself, too 🙁
I once had to wear my husband (then boyfriends) boxers as i forgot pants on a visit to his parents. And it was christmas! On another note enjoying watching your husband on the telly! Love this new blog even more than the old one.
Thanks Ellie, great to have you here x
And you get a cheery hooray and a cascade of stars when you tick off the last thing on your list. This appeals to the kindergartener in me!
I know I KNOW!!!! it’s really motivating
Do you? HOW?

I can’t find Tick – help!
other people have said this! I can’t imagine what the problem is?!
I love this too, but honestly if you can’t stand typing, just use the microphone icon to tell it what to do and it will use that clever speech to text stuff. I love telling people what to do, so this really works for me.
I’m looking into this right now
