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
