Too Busy to be Doing Nothing

This afternoon I am trying not to multitask.

As I am writing this blog post, it should be apparent to all that I'm failing, but fingers crossed this will be a temporary aberration.

I'm looking after the kids, while the dear wife visits an emigrating friend to collect a large amount of discount furniture we bought from them. And possibly have a glass of wine.

At the moment, one of them is having a long-overdue Big Fat Sleep, and I'm helping the other write Christmas cards to her schoolfriends. It's wonderfully calming 'small world' stuff...and I'm finding it almost impossible to be so still.

Work does a really good job of tricking us into thinking we've always got to be running at 110%, juggling five things at once, looking ahead - to the point where we lose the ability to stop.

But it's time for another try...
