I won a raffle prize last week!

Friday and Saturday were spent in Oxfordshire in the caravan, we were next door to Blenheim Palace. Home of the Duke of Marlborough, and birthplace and ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill.
I don't know why I thought I was going to get round everything in a few days, it's not possible, not if you want to see all of the palace and gardens. We did half of the house and some of the gardens. There's a lot of walking involved as things are spaced out, but it's well worth a visit. I'm going back.

In case you're wondering how I got on with the 'to do' methods in the last blog post, here's how it went...
Doing just one task a day, gives you amazing freedom, I really like this system, and it worked really well for me whilst I was working away. There were two days when I couldn't complete my tasks. It wasn't for the trying either. Circumstances made it impossible in both cases, the first was an appointment I was unable to make as my Pilates coach is away for three weeks, and the other was impossible to do without wifi, or a phone signal, both of which I didn't have between Friday and Sunday teatime. I didn't get stressed about it, both tasks will go forward onto this week's list.
The other idea, 'The Square Method' I used for writing, and writing related tasks, (you can read about it here along with the 'one task a day' method) and I divided my squares into 20 minute stints. I love this method of doing things, and I felt really productive and found myself wanting to fill up my squares!
How did your week go? Did you get out and about? Did you try my productivity tips last week? Do let me know, I'd love you to share how you got on.
