I’ve been busy today. I don’t usually have the time to look after my housework, write, do business and rest, but today I managed a bit of everything. Although I’m glad I got a lot done today, it doesn’t take much for me to start feeling impatient. I don’t do well for very long without people around me. Titch is sweet, but conversation with her is a bit one-sided. “Meow” is the limit of her discourse.
Some people do well when stuck in the house. I confess, that I do not. It becomes easy for me to get distracted and lazy. The TV quickly becomes my companion and I find I spend more and more time of frivolous online activities. I need to have a balance between the trivial and the productive.
So, as I sit here between Edinburgh and Glasgow, I think about the few million people in the surrounding cities going about their business, working and talking together and I wonder how anyone can ever work from home with any regularity and get anything done. How do they not sleep until noon and eat all day?
Just the same, I’m glad I have the opportunity to write and that my time is my own for a while. It’s a test of my discipline. So, if you had a few weeks to do anything you wanted, what would you do? How would you spend your time?
Write about all of the things you would like to do, whatever it is. Put yourself in a house for a month with a stocked fridge and decorate it any way you wish. Be specific about your surrounding and what you would do.
