There are also other time wasters in my life that use up minutes faster than an hungry dog empties his bowl.
Word puzzles of any kind keep me busy for lots of precious minutes.
A jigsaw is another thing that keeps me distracted which is why I rarely start one. They take up more than minutes, in fact they eat hours. Strange really when all I'm doing is putting weird shaped pieces of cardboard together to create a picture that I'll then break up and put away in the box again.
But there is one time waster that I'll happily give up days for. My grandson, Austin.
Last week my DB and I got an SOS from our daughter. Could we babysit for three days as she had to work very long days and go to a work dinner one of those nights. What deadlines? The book could wait. We were in the car within a very short time and five hours later were in Christchurch ready to enjoy our wee man. The time flew by and every minute was fun. Okay, not when he fell over the edge of the step into the garden or when he decided sleep was highly over rated and playing far more enjoyable. But I'm happy to waste time with this little guy. I did take the laptop with the silly idea there might be half an hour here or there to work towards that deadline, but did it come out of it's carry bag? Nah. Not once. Do I care? Nope. Not at all.
What is your favourite time waster? Or are you so organised you can avoid them?
