Procrastination Is The Thief Of Time.

Just sat here in our sunny conservatory on GN. Two lines of washing out. Now what should I be doing?
I would normally be at my Aquacise class, but of course these are not normal times.
I could wash my windows, but although sunny, a cool wind is blowing and my hands are already chapped with so much hand washing. So not today.
I could read, but our library has closed and I only have five books left, so must spin them out, plus feel guilty at just reading in the morning. So that’s out.
However, as this all looks to be the norm for the foreseeable future, lots of opportunities to get things done.
Meanwhile, think I’ll soon grab a spot of lunch....

I made a list of jobs to do when I first self isolated last Monday.
How many have I done? None! Day seems to slip away on other more enjoyable things and I think there is always tomorrow.

I am a terrible procrastinator.

I can really get things done when I am up against a deadline, but when there is 'plenty of time' I just put off, even when I am bored.

I annoy myself, but I've always been the same.

I think if we get too much done now there will be nothing to do later if we are in lockdown for a long time. So let’s just enjoy the sunshine!

I'm pacing myself - not procrastinating. That's my story anyway!

I think I’ve probably got about 12 weeks to get stuff done, so I can’t find it in me to rush any of it.
