The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
Procrastination is a frustrating thing. The art of putting stuff off.
Dithering and delaying.
I don’t really know how it happens but things just don’t get done. There’s often reasons or excuses too. Sometimes they’re plausible.
So without resorting to a New Year’s resolution I’m intending to mend my ways.
I’ve decided that whenever something needs fixing or sorting out I shall try to do it there and then. A drawer that’s overflowing or hard to find something in, a small object that needs a tiny fix to work properly.
I’m going to fix it.
I started already.
Take my sock hanger thingie. It became a clever balancing act when ever I used it because one supporting chain had broken. It seems the plastic links have become brittle.
I only think about it while hanging socks. Then forget until the next wash.
Today I did the socks and went in search of safety pins.
Simple and effective and fixed. Marvellous !
