The Art of Procrastination

As the title to this post suggests, I should be doing something else right now. I have a list of jobs that need doing this weekend and I don’t want to do any of them! This weekend, I do not want to be a grown up. I’m half way through a job Application but got stuck on the “Personal Statement” part of it so I decided to do some washing. The washing machine stopped about an hour ago but I haven’t found the motivation to put the clothes out to dry. My sink is piled high with dishes that need washing too but instead of that, I’ve put my hair in rollers for no reason at all.

So what have I been doing for the last hour? I’ve been refreshing and re-refreshing my Twitter feed and clicking on pretty much every link that’s come up. I haven’t even been reading all of the pages that I’ve opened! I’m doing everything I can to distract myself from what actually needs doing. I’ve even gone to the extent of blogging about how much I don’t want to do what’s on my list just to avoid doing it.

I’ve made a deal with myself. I’m going to watch Maleficent (which, so far is good – I Love Angelina Jolie!) Then I’m going to set up my work space on the dining table and tick off everything on my list before my little sister gets here for our evening out together. I’m going to start with finishing off the job application that I’m part way through and then I’m going to treat myself with something a little more creative (Yesterday being payday meant a sneaky trip to Paperchase on my way home last night, but don’t tell my husband)
