I've had a mild cold this week, can't complain as it must be over a year since I had one, but it has been a bit of an excuse to do nothing. Of course things I have to do like my job etc, I've done but today I find myself....doing nothing and guess what, its nice!
Rules for busy doing nothing successfully:
1: The weather has to be pleasant, rain etc will just make you feel depressed.
2: There must be no one else with you or you would feel guilty.
3: You must be on your guard that when family etc are due back in, you have made up an excuse to why 'nothing' has been done.
Theres the thing, why do we feel guilty, or make excuses to why we do nothing. 'What have you been up to today?' 'Nothing'. Eeek, its almost a swear word. So there you go, apart from putting a little bit of ironing away, until later, I'm busy doing nothing and I don't feel gulty!!!!!!
If anyone asks, I ironed a pile of clothes, cleaned all my cupboards out, did the gardening, paperwork........
