I don’t know quite what happened last week, the last seven days seem to have just flown by and I don’t seem to have achieved anything in my family history.
I suppose I did spend some time fiddling around with my to-do list, and there was a bit of searching, but for the life of me I don’t remember actually achieving anything. In my defence I would say that I probably didn’t have quite as much free time as I would normally, but that is not really a very good excuse, because there were opportunities to do some research.
I am struggling to remember if I have actually updated my database last week, I probably did add one or two bits and pieces, but nothing major (or indeed memorable as it turns out). If there was an event at the Commonwealth Games for procrastinators I would be in line for a medal, I seem to spend a lot of time thinking about what I could do, but I just never seem to get around to doing anything about it.
I did get all my latest postcards scanned, and I feel I could probably spend a couple of weeks just writing about my postcards. I would like to write more about postcards and using them in family history, but whether I will ever get around to it is a different matter.
I think the big problems is that there is so much that I would like to do but don’t have the time, whether it is blogging or family history. I think the answer is going to be to capture all the thoughts that are running around my head and put them all into my to-do list, where I don’t have to worry about them unless I want to.
The exciting news is that whilst searching for one of books in my parent’s attic, I discovered (or re-discovered) a few family history treasures, which had once belonged to my grandfather, including a tiny little birthday book, which lists the birthdays of many of my relations (from the TROWER and GASSON side of the family). I am going to have great fun going through that and extracting all the details.
