Over-stretching Oneself

This is the story of my life, it comes up every year in my annual appraisal. You see, I have two modes, on and off. I find it hard to sit around which is one of my frustrations with children. The slow pace of life just doesn’t suit. However, this week I have totally over done it. I have far too much to do, so much that I have entered student mode of deflection. Even the ironing seems a better prospect than doing the stuff that just has to be done.

Shortly I shall be flattened by an avalanche of historic costume and fossil books reference for the reports I’m trying to write, topped with some child-minding policies. The children will be found, running rampage throughout the house. They will have no clean clothes to wear and will be feasting on Fruit Shoots and Haribo sweets. So why am I writing pointless blog posts such as this?

    Blogging is one of the best forms of procrastination. Apart from ironing, perhaps. I find I blog loads more when I have an assignment to write, or some other work I don't much fancy.

    Perhaps you should join your children in eating Haribo sweets; sugar will surely give you more motivation than to do the ironing, lol. Take care, CJ xx

    Lol I am exactly the same!! I just try to put my all into the house and my child! When I have to do things I don't want to I decide on a reward so that when I'm working on it I'll stay focused as the quicker it's done the sooner I'll get the reward… Normally blog Reading or posting!
