So very very bored.
How do you fill day after day of what basically amounts to sitting around? Sounds lively really, doesn't it. Like most people for years I wished for a life where I didn't have to go to work everyday.
It's quite easy at first – after all I'm sure we all have lots of things we have put off until we 'have more time', and there are all the things that you've 'always wanted to do'.
But it doesn't fill 8 years.
I've watched all the shows I really want to watch. I've read all the books I really wanted to read. I've even tried painting. I really tried but I think the Play School house is the limit of my artistic ability so that didn't last long.
Now I just wake up every day hoping to find something to fill my day but the trouble is the more time you have the more you waste and the less you have the inclination to actually do something.
Yes, I'm bored.
So what are my plans for today?
Well, there's the excitement of doing some laundry. There's the excitement of hoovering. Then I'll probably go for a walk.
Stop press – it's raining.
