No Time to stop and Stare…

Do you ever get those weeks when you are so busy your feet barely touch the ground? Last week was like that, and this week looks to be going the same way.

I can’t understand people who say they are bored. I am busy and productive all of the time and, in truth, that’s how I like it most of the time. It’s a good job I have Mr Shoestring to make me stop and sit down, or go out for a walk or a bike ride. He says I am a machine! He can get a lot done in a short space of time, whereas I am more a tortoise than a hare; I just keep going!

Yesterday was typical. I had to get myself and DD3 to the dentist for 8.50, then take her to school and drive to work. We were crazy busy all day, then I finished at 6 and fought my way through the traffic to get home and change, stuck some washing in the machine then went off to teach my yoga class for an hour and a half. I drove home and was back by 9.30, had my dinner, cleared up and went to bed!

Fortunately the girls had made the dinner, but their efforts didn’t extend go doing the washing up sadly.

imageThis morning I am typing this on my phone waiting for a blood test at the local hospital and hoping I won’t be late for work. I need to do a bit of shopping after work, sort tea and then tackle a big pile of ironing with my name on it.

All incredibly humdrum I know, but actually my life is never boring. A bit of boredom would be a luxury! What I would like is a bit of time sometimes to just do nothing, but at least I am gainfully employed with my family around me so I consider myself fortunate.

As I have been waiting, I have had time to have a look at some pix on my phone from our holiday in Wales last year. We had a fabulous walk or two and, as you can see from the photo, the scenery was amazing and we did have time to stop and stare!

Does anyone else suffer from a lack of time?
