Do you ever get the feeling there are not enough hours in the day?
When I get a day off, lately, I just feel completely crazed – so much to do, so little time. The sheer fact that I have so much choice drives me mad and makes it difficult to concentrate
I got a pile of books for my birthday. They are sitting there, on the book-case, gently mocking me – or smiling at me depending on my mood. Yesterday afternoon they were mocking me and strengthened my resolve to FINISH the wonderful Mrs Ames by EF Benson (author of the excellent Mapp and Lucia books, that I had from the library. Library books first AND THEN the smirking pile..
In addition to all this reading I have been endeavoring to watch my way through the utterly brilliant TV series The Wire, compulsive it is. Each dvd has three programmes (not enough) and I have usually managed to ingest them all in one night – has to be done..
Free time of course, has got more precious now I am working at the shop. This is on my wish list of stuff to do today –
- Write blog – tick 🙂
- Go for a walk down the river (walks have shrunk the busier I have got – not good 😦 )
- Visit Louise in her shop
- Visit Ali at the Globe
- Visit the laundromat – washing waits for no woman
- Start to make another bag
- Finish an owl
- List my spare clothes on Ebay
- Buy veg at the Thursday market
- Cook tea
- Go to the Stitch and Bitch this evening
As I said – this is a wish list, not really a hope that I will get it all done!
My birthday by the way, passed happily, and many thanks to all of you out there who sent me messages. It was great to be remembered. I had the day off from work and spent it wandering around town, visiting friends and my work to pick up a huge bunch of flower. The evening I spent with new friends down at Kilverts as unfortunately my man Mr T had to work that night.
This is one of my favourite cards –
and this is what it said inside
I guess the answer to the ‘to much to do’ problem is to appreciate and be thankful that you have so many wonderful things that you can choose to do and then pick one and totally enjoy it while you are doing it. I know this – why do I find it so hard to remember?
