- The new Sainsburys/Waitrose/John Lewis/M&S Christmas adverts are showing on TV. So obviously I have to stop blogging to watch them, and then of course to look on FB or Twitter to see what other people think about them! (In case you’re interested – not keen on the John Lewis one, but cry every time the M&S one appears!)
- I suddenly realise that I haven’t tested out Amazon Prime One Day Delivery service – which I have to do immediately in case I forget (actually not sure I NEEDED a new rucksack delivered in a day but still!!)
- I remember that the cat litter needs changing. Well, it will need changing in a few days, so it makes sense to do it while I think of it!
- As we are moving in a few months it’s probably a good time to start packing – and this seems to take the form of going through drawers I haven’t been into for a while and discovering some great toys the kids haven’t played with yet. So, obviously we have to spend time investigating – I’m just being a good mum!
- The kids ask for a story in the middle of the day. Then they ask to visit the library – now this sounds like a very good use of our time, and I’m always up for more reading in our lives.
I wrote the title for this blog a few days ago – I wasn’t really feeling like writing the post at the time! So I procrastinated – and then when I came to write it today I had to think for ages about what on earth I was planning on writing! It would have been so much easier to have written it when I had thought of it. And that is really the point I am making. I have found that, since beginning my blog, my powers of procrastination have become so much stronger. Obviously, being a parent blogger,I have kids, and they definitely are at the top of my list of why I have to procrastinate. Or do they? Well I’ve spent the week noting down when I procrastinate to see how much of it is to do with the kids. Here are my top 5 procrastination moments.
