Timewasting



This week l don't seem able to settle down and concentrate, l fidget and waffle about, drink coffee, walk the dog, sweep up the leaves and open the shop but l just can't sit down in the office, open up the accounts software program and get cracking on invoices, bills, statements and bank reconciliations. The mind is not engaged. The computer is turned on, the pages from ebay open, emails shoot back & forth but, as the business returns to the seasonal norm perhaps l too am slowing down or am l getting ready to either hibernate or fly south for the winter?



The geese stream across the sky & l watch. Where would l go? I think l might like to visit India and travel around in an elderly car taking in the sights and sounds and smells. Staying overnight in glittering palaces, sipping gin & tonic as the sun sets behind the Himalayas. Riding through the tea plantations as dawn breaks.


Oh hell, you daft bat, stop it. Pull yourself together. You must ring up that customer who hasn't paid for 8 weeks and give them what for................!

I think you're entitled to a bit of down time given your summer! If you're going somewhere hot I'll come too - I'm berludy freezing today!

Muddy I am so glad it is not just me! I've just had a lovely e-mail from one of my clients gently reminding me I need to invoice them. Now lets just have a wee peek at all the lovely things I too could do in India...;)

Oh, go to the sun, it'll do you much more good than ploughing through invoices...

I know just what you mean - I have these vague, drifty, can't get down it to periods every now and then. One day I wake up and feel quite dynamic!

I'm counting the days to November, when I've closed the cottages for three weeks.
