I'm a world-class procrastinator. At the moment I am putting off ironing a duvet cover.
What are you putting off?

Some paperwork, and cleaning the outside of the windows ( haven't even thought about doing the insides ). The one thing that I don't put off is the washing and ironing. I don't mind laundry. There's always manyana!

Must add reading the manual for the car I've had for two years!

Moving the Christmas tree into the garage, it is still in the box with the decorations in the dining room. Only 5 months to Christmas I may as well leave it where it is.

What is wrong with drivers these days?
Remember the old saying ‘ be a knight of the road?’ I often let cars out in front of me, I always acknowledge drivers who do the same but rarely do other drivers do the same. They act as if it is their right. Don’t mention those drivers who tear past me to join a queue at traffic lights and get no further forward I often have to slam on my brakes to avoid a crash. Can we all be a bit more considerate

After posting on here that I had been putting off sorting and reboxing my Christmas decorations for a few years now I finally got down to it this afternoon ( don't watch tennis or cricket!) .
I have thrown some away, tidied others and amalgamated three boxes into one.

Oh well I will just have to find something else to procrastinate over . . .

Last year I decided to replace the bath with a shower and redo the rest.
Couldn't make up my mind - even broke my hip to delay the decision-making.
Finally did it. Everything ordered delivered and stored in dining-room.
Installation set for 15 July (tomorrow) and only now DGD is slapping emulsion on the ceiling.
Still need to clear out cupboards and then it's all systems go (I hope).
