Ok, so I know that with 4 under 4 life is pretty hectic. But my brain is 'bored.'
I have the kind of brain that needs to be chewing something over all the time. So when I've got a looming deadline - no problem! But as I write quickly, and probably have four or five deadlines a month, I'm soon back to twiddling my thumbs!
So - what to do? My problem is that I need something that "forces" me to think about it. If I did a course (for example) "for the sake of it", I'd soon abandon it... I need pressure and deadlines and that's just who I am!
I've thought about starting a new business - I am a qualified counsellor, for example, or doing a course that would 'lead to something' (such as a new business!) but undecided. Writing competitions are interesting, but I still feel I need a bit more 'going on'!
Anyone got any ideas?
Have spent the morning writing an article for TES (Times Educational Supplement) (oooh, get me!), which is a bit of a deviation from my usual writing market (Women's Mags), so that was really interesting. I also feel pretty proud that I got a commission from them :-)
Also, iced chocolate cake, ate chocolate cake... Changed 3 pooey nappies... (luckily nothing got "mixed up"), wrote an assignment for my writing course (again, I'm too quick - it was soon over!), had friends round for a cuppa, ate cheese on toast and looked out at the rain wondering how I can keep myself busy for the rest of the day(!) Miserable November weather - totally uninspiring...
In France, Sundays are like they used to be in England about 20 years ago - there is NOTHING happening! What's worse, Mondays aren't much better, as many of the shops close. I don't even think I would be going out anywhere if things WERE open, but it's knowing you can. Feel a bit trapped!
Very difficult going out with 4 little 'uns. Lots of friends we'd like to see, but it's always "hang on, they have (1) Ornaments (2) White sofas (3) Hazardous stairs (4) Building works going on , etc. If it's not the children plunging from a great height, it's the thought of the chaos they leave in their wake!
So, ho-hum, back to twiddling thumbs! Inspire me someone!!!!!!!
