I'm experimenting with Wunderlist for keeping track of tasks and lists and so forth, and of course it's been bought out by Microsoft and they're previewing the Microsoft version of the new software just as I start to use it. Grr.

Frustratingly, the Microsoft version includes the ability to schedule things for weekdays only (for example), which is something I really value, but not the ability to put subtasks in a task.

And Wunderlist can only manage weekly or daily repetitions, but it does have subtasks.


So I may be using both side-by-side for a while, as I figure out what I need. I like the subtasks because it makes shopping lists and tracking my Hugo reads much easier. Having shopping lists I can tick off is something I really want, but none of the apps that are specifically for shopping work the way I want them to. So I'm trying out Wunderlist and I do like the idea of only having one app for all the different kinds of lists I need to track.

But I don't want to be reminded to close the windows before I go to work on weekends, which makes the Microsoft app useful. At least Wunderlist is going to keep running for a long time yet, probably while they port all that useful functionality over into the MS thing.

If anyone has a suggestion for an app that can do all the stuff I need in one app, and can be shared between web/iPhone/iPad, PLEASE let me know.

In other stuff...

Last night, I had a craving for scones and jam. So I made scones! I love being a competent baker. Although note to self: use the larger cutter, because these scones are very very small. The recipe is for eight. I have fifteen bite-size babies. Whoops.

I have spent most of my life thinking I don't like raspberry jam. Mum always reminds me I don't like it every time I contemplate trying it and I believed her.

Readers, I tried it and guess what? I like raspberry jam!

I will never believe Mum about these things without testing for myself again.

Mothers are dubious sources on this matter! Mine told me that I didn't like mushrooms or spinach, but it turned out that *she* doesn't like mushrooms, and I didn't like spinach once when I was about 8 and it was served in a big cold lump on my plate. Maybe you rejected raspberry jam once, many years ago!

This is pretty much the thought I was having -- either Mom has a very clear memory of the baby/toddler/child rejecting a food and isn't prepared for adult tastes to differ, or else Mom doesn't like it herself and doesn't want child to like it either.

Raspberry jam is great! Welcome to a world with more raspberry jam for you. ;-)

(My mum has little opinions on what I do/don't like, but then I have two sisters, so she has trouble getting our names in the right order sometimes, let alone which of us dislikes which, or has done at which point in the past.)

(I know nothing about list apps etc. raspberry jam, however, I can confirm is excellent. Although I do prefer seedless!)

See, there's an app I use for all listing purposes that I pretty much love, but A) it's for Android and I don't think there'd be an Apple version of something called Google Tasks Organizer, and B) the paid version went no-longer-available a few years ago and that was the version that allowed me to reshuffle lists into a convenient order (for example, being able to arrange my shopping list so that it followed my usual path through the store).
