Putting my feet into my slipper boots when there’s a spider in one,
Running out of marmite,
Returning overdue library books (I might get a row!),
The phone never ringing. Schools went back today so I have glued myself to my phones, hoping they will ring with news of supply work. It hasn’t happened yet. In truth it probably won’t happen until flu season hits around November time.
My instincts are telling me to wallow. I feel like getting into bed with some DVDs and chocolate but really I know better. I know that the way to feel happier, more useful, more valuable is to stay busy. Stay busy and accomplish things, whether that’s getting the dishes done, learning to play Chopsticks on the piano or writing the synopsis for a novel. Productivity is vital for self-esteem, I know this through experience (remember I mentioned I have seen a lot of Buffy, can you imagine how many hours that took? No, I don’t consider sitting around for hours watching vamp ass kicking to be productive).
If you had a lot of time on your hands, what would you like to accomplish?
I hope you’re all having a great day, please excuse me while I study the insides of my slippers, it’s getting nippy around here! I may also put on some Bubbles 🙂
