No time to write

I'm pulling my hair out over my essay on personality disorders, Hubby is pushing me to get on with his bookkeeping and Son 1 decided to have a crisis today and seems to have rather given up on life.

My copy of Suite Francaise arrived in the post from Amazon and a friend who has just read it wants me to read it soon so we can discuss it. But when will I have time?

Oh and I need to lose weight, I have put on a lot since Son 1 became ill as I am much more confined to home and have frozen my gym membership. Not that I did anything too energetic there, but I did enjoy yoga and swimming. Diet and exercise is needed, along with less chocolate, I fear. It's always the damned chocolate which makes me put on weight. Oh well it's nearly time for my next monthly targets...

Feel very sympathetic, Cathy. Although my other half is sem-retired and therefore the workload for me is greatly diminished, I am nevertheless finishing off the VAT and other bookkeeping today.

and like you, I've put on weight,worryingly, since Christmas, rather than during the holiday period. I too am a great lover of chocolate and have been indulging too much. Roll on spring, then perhaps I won't be tempted.

Just choose one priority for this week other than son 1 of course.

Can the diet start after Easter?

Is there an urgent deadline on the book-keeping?

Is there a deadline for the essay and is it more urgent than the book-keeping?

Read the book for yourself when you have time to enjoy it. Maybe at night to unwind.

Sometimes we impose things on ourselves that don't need to be there - I am so guilty of doing that!

Just look after yourself kiddo.

I've sorted my priorities for this week and they don't include the bookkeeping!

As for the diet, I had a Cadbury's Creme Egg today...starting after Easter is probably a very good idea!!
