Idea’s to occupy yourself during State of Origin

Tomorrow is the night that most men and some women go manic over the football. Something called State of Origin is on???  Lol, Ok, I am so not a footy fan (nor is my hubby), I more than likely will be happily watching one of my favourite TV shows while pottering away on the laptop.

However, I am thinking of all the State of Origin widows wondering what you will be doing while your other half is glued to the TV.  Here is a list of suggestions of things you can do while sitting with him, therefore still spending time together:

  • On the laptop:
    • go through your unread emails
    • clean up your contacts folder
    • download photo’s and sort into folders by year and date
    • clean up your Internet explorer favourites folder
  • Go through old cookbook magazines, rip out recipes you want to keep and organise as suggested HERE
  • Project Life
  • Organise photos
  • Clean your jewellery
  • Paint your nails
  • Place all your scrapbooking layouts into albums
  • Declutter your handbag
  • Write out a list of things you need to do around the house, To-Do List available HERE
  • Read a magazine
  • Read a book
  • Go through your home phone/mobile and delete any irrelevant phone numbers
  • Organise receipts ready for tax season
  • Organise a pile of paper clutter
  • Ironing
  • Fold Washing

What will you be doing during the State of Origin?

    Happy 30th Genevieve, hope you have a super day. Are you having cake? Mmm yummy best part of a bday IMO. xx

    Ok so I thought I had myself sorted on what my night would be like and then I read this post. I was planning on sorting my recipes folder (umm this seems like an always evolving process for me) but now that I have read this post I can already feel myself getting distracted. Do you have any tips on staying on task? Im pretty organised but I never seem to make a dent in my To do list.

    I get so much satisfaction when I complete a project. Trouble is I usually have about 5 on the go at a time so nothing ever really gets finished. Anyone else relate?

    Happy 30th Genevieve! We share the day except I’m a decade and a bit older. I married a Dutchman who has no understanding of football so we are going out to dinner!

    Now if only we could get State of origin/Wiggles/Twighlight/FA Cup all broadcast simultaneously i might get through that great list!!
