This year's resolution is to .........
I know I appear to be a tornado whizzing through life doing a million things at once and fitting the proverbial quart into a pint pot, but secretly I do have a bit of a procrastinating habit.
The in-tray in the study can sit for months with statements to be filed and admin to be done. I put off small tasks such as mending, sorting the recycling and posting letters for days.
It wouldn't be a problem if it didn't bother me, but it does.
Letter and cards sit on the hall cabinet saying "post me, post me" and the post box is only 30 second down the road!.
I mend clothes with safety pins that then poke into my waist rather than get the sewing box out and sew the buton back on.
I once had a suit I didn't wear for about 3 months because the hem had come down on the trousers. Every time I opened my wardrobe they mocked me "you want to wear me, but you can't".
So, I have stopped procrastinating.
I have emptied the in-tray, I have mended my pyjamas and I have posted letters and cards.
And it feels good!
Let's see if I can keep it up when I go back to work............
