Procrastinating on the difficult jobs

Hello Friends,

I’ve got a number of outstanding jobs I need to do, but can’t quite get around to at the moment.  They are:

  • things I don’t want to do
  • things I don’t quite know how to do
  • things I want to do but just haven’t got time.

In the first catergory have been things like cooking.  Normally I like cooking, but the heat has sapped all my energy in the last few days, so I’ve been picking things I can cook quickly and easily.  Tomorrow night we’ll be having fish which I will just put in a tray, cover with tomatoes, olives and parsley and just put in the oven for 20 minutes.

In the first and second category lie sorting out the Frugal Hill website.  This is a self hosted blog, which gives me lots of freedom, but without a degree in computer science I struggle at times.  The service I used to use for commenting has ended.  There is a way around it, I’ve got to download a plug in and get into the programmy bits of the site.  I’ve done it before, but because it doesn’t come naturally to me I find it all a bit scary.   I’m sorry I’m not commenting on our blogs at the moment, but I promise I’m still reading.

In the third category are things like carrying on with painting and decorating the hall and play room.  I did a lot last autumn after Bee and Edie went back to university, so I think it’s just a question of timing.  It isn’t practical at the moment with a printers, hard hats, strings of fairy lights, suitcases and other student paraphenalia in the house – I’ve just got to be patient.

How about you – what are the things you find it hard to get round to doing?

Until next time, Tawney x

  1. I must get the upstairs bathroom shower sorted out. Every time I go in it screams at me. I just get panicky when I think of getting a plumber sorted and all the hassle of moving things…… Ugh
