Where is the time going?

Not the weeks - they seem to be standing still at the moment (despite the fact that I am freaking out about the move which is in less than 7 weeks ) but the hours are just flying by. I had to cancel coffee with D&T today because there is so much to do that I am just not getting done - but I am no longer in paid employ, so what's the crack?

True, there have been a couple of days that have seen me in bed until 1.00pm hangs head in shame - but this is a side effect of my new meds - honest ;0) but here we are, it is 16.33 precisely and *all* I seem to have done is sort paperwork, iron and tidy the house. You can always tell when I have deadlines that I am avoiding because I develop a deep, intimate realtionship with my iron.

The house tidying was kind of essential - my folks are housesitting while we go to Zurich this weekend to finalise the lease. The ironing was also kind of important - I don't want to appear as a complete slob until my new neighbours get to know me a little better ;0)

Speaking of moving, the movers come to do an estimate next week - I have to have all of the rbbish thrown out by then - I really do mean that I HAVE to get it done. I have that strange feeling that when I get back from Zurich there'll be no knitting until it is done ;0(

And as the camera and pc still refuse to recognise the existence of one another, here is a gratuitous kitty pic.... ....stop laughing at her ears - you wouldn't like it!

It's for the best for us as well - I'd have had to quit working on my essays to have coffee. Not that I did anything worthwhile, mind you, but I'd have felt guilty for not hovering over the computer, working and working... or working and erasing, as the case may be.

Funnily enough, there will come a time when you have a moment of clarity, and realize that you'll make it. Truly, you will. And then it'll be OK for like 5 minutes and you'll get frantic again. But those 5 minutes will be wondrous. :)

There will be some knitting on Dec 9th (well maybe not!) I'm sure it will all go well , even tho it seems like madness just now.

They will pack the rubbish too if need be.They don't care. Not ideal I know - but you can always get rid of it in Switzerland instead!

All I can say is deep breaths and make lists, do one thing at a time and take it easy. You know, it's not worth making yourself unwell over!

Can Number Guy help with the getting-rid? Or even your parents, when my Mum and I moved house we held "packing parties" and invited everyone over who were spoiled with tea and cakes, as long as they packed a box whilst they were there. Worked a treat!
