Soooo, I’m making breakfast, the jug is on for a cup of tea. Outside, the sky is grey and it looks like we will get the promised rain. I’m tossing around thoughts for the blog post I’m doing today while I wait for the toast to pop. Will I do a progress report on the bathroom (yep, it’s been a while!) or will I take you the gorgeous drive we did on Sunday (I’ve got pictures, lots of lovely pictures!)
Suddenly, there’s a bright flash so closely followed by an enormous crash that it seems as though light and sound have raced each other to our house. Then the room goes dim, the jug goes off, bread rises slowly out of the toaster.
Power is out!
And then the rain starts, dropping from the lowering grey clouds in sheets, overwhelming the guttering. Water splashes over the paving and garden foliage bows beneath the onslaught.
Uh-oh… the question now is not, “what will I blog about” but “will I be able to blog at all!” Which makes me feel a bit guilty because I’ve known that this is my date for blogging so several days – I set up a calendar to send timely reminders!
But even knowing that, have I scheduled the post? Nope!
Well, I’ve been distracted, there’s lots going on at the moment. It’s a social time with Christmas around the corner, I’ve got a club newsletter to put together, I’m dabbing about at a de-clutter (now there’s a blog topic for another day!)… the list goes on… and on... and on.
And I realise that although there is lots on the to-do list, there’s not that much actually being “done”! I’ve been procrastinating! It’s annoying and inefficient – and I think it’s time it stopped.
So I’m asking you… do you procrastinate? Do you have any great tips for getting procrastination under control?
Oh and you've probably noticed... the power has now come back on so I can chat today after all!
