I like lists. At least I think I like lists. I certainly use them a lot. However sometimes it feels like my brain is like a security guard at an exclusive club. It even has a clip board.
What I mean by that is that if it is not on the list it doesn’t happen. Sometimes it doesn’t happen if it is on the list!
So far this year I can count this blog as a success from the list. This is being written on the 15th and for you it is the 25th. Scheduling is a real joy. I even feel tempted to put some in for the far future. Just for the hell of it. That would really confuse people. That is assuming of course the internet will still exist in decades to come. It probably will. I maybe a pessimist a lot of the time but I don’t actually believe humans are going to blow up the world or anything.
As I write this I am getting towards the end of a week off. There was no particular reason to take leave it was more of use it or loose it type situation. And in this week off I have discovered something rather interesting. I suck at time management. As I have been off my time has all been my own and I haven’t smashed my to-do list(s). There is still rather a lot to be done. I have come to an important realisation – I have given myself more tasks to do than I actually have time to do them.
Clearly this is something I need to work on. The funny thing is I feel a little guilty when not being productive and drained when I don’t do more fun stuff.
As I am typing now it is a rather nice day outside. And it would be nice to go for a walk – all I can think though is that I have stuff to do. There is something wonderful in the feeling of crossing off something from a to-do list. Which is why I want to wrap this up so I can do everything!
I did make an interesting discovery on this week off though. And that is the market. To be more accurate I should say rediscovery. Cardiff has a nice covered market not to mention other independent green grocers, butchers, and so on. And what is amazing they are cheaper than the supermarket.
This is still something of a surprise to me. It would seem logical to assume that supermarkets, since they can have massive national contracts with farmers, that as a consequence they would be cheaper. They are not.
So I have at the very least learned this from my week off. Go to the market. Cheep and delicious food and, if I’m honest, a more enjoyable shopping experience than that of a supermarket. Spending cash maybe a little annoying but you’ll spend less and my even be healthier.
See you next time.
I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
