I am supposed to be spending today working at home, doing all the stuff that I should have done over the summer, but instead I have avoided it.
This morning I visited blog land - very nice, lots to see, read and comment on. A very enjoyable couple of hours - skiving!!
Then I decided that I really must go into town to get something (I will show you what I got soon). Now this was a bit of an adventure for me. I often go into town, but the road I normally use is closed for roadworks at the moment. So this meant going a different way. I had to use a road that I have avoided for most of the last 5 years. Almost exactly 5 years ago I was off to do some shopping one day and someone hit my car. They not only denied it was their fault, they denied there was any accident or damage. Eventually my court action resolved the issue, but it took a long time. Although my car's dents were repaired, my confidence was dented for a long long time afterwards.
I avoided the road for about 3 years. Even if hubby drove that way I hated it, and I never drove that way. Since then I have driven that way a couple of times with hubby, but not alone. Today, I decided - in the spirit of braveness - and because I could not use the normal road, to go into town that way. I was very nervous, but I went and came back, and I survived. More skiving completed!
A load or two of laundry on - skiving!
I have scooped all the stuff off my desk and put it into a basket and am supposed to be sitting on the sofa going through it all and writing the reports that I need for a meeting tonight (agggggghhhhhh!). Instead, I am writing a blog post to ya'll!! Even more skiving!!
So, I better go and get on with my pile of stuff and write my reports and do some work. If you see me again in the next 3 hours tell me to go away and do some work - please!
Hope that you are having a happy sunny Thursday. It is lovely here, I could go outside and see the garden..........
