I loathe organising things: events; parties; holidays; nights out. Loathe it. Too many other people to please. Too much decision making. Too many details. I prefer to be organised by others.
Needlesstosay, I am usually the 'ideas' person and I surround myself with 'do'ers. It is a happy and complementary arrangement. Just don't put me in charge of the operations. I suck at it.
The Geege usually organises and plans our holidays. We rarely stick to the plan (I have too many ideas for that!) but he at least gets us started. He says the planning is all part of the fun. I say the surprise is all part of the fun.
This time there has been an organisation stand off. We booked the days off work. We agreed on the general location and then neither of us did a thing about the details. No bookings, no itinerary, not a single plan. The Geege says he has been too busy. I say I don't *do* organising. And so it didn't get done.
Needlesstosay, our holiday did not start today. Today has been spent searching the internet for holiday accommodation, packing suitcases for the six of us, arranging meal-plans and catching up on the washing. Tomorrow we will head off on our little road-trip. All organised by me, so it is bound to be a disaster!
Who does the organising at your place?
