This is what the bars of chocolate are for. Workshop on Thursday, thought it would be fun to use up some offcuts of card making papers and create some stocking or little gifts...so take 3 bars, ease off the original outer wrappers, re-wrap them and add ribbon. And a little tag to remind you of life's priorities and wham, litle pressie. Rocket science it's not, but you can guage now why I'm trying not to eat all 17 bars of chocolate. Because it would be very piggy. Because I'd have to buy more. Because the workshop is this week. But 'trying' is the operative word today. Have managed thus far to do domestics this morning, and now want to tidy up in the craft section of the house (!) and crank out a few more cards. Nearly there now. Then the list of non-card stuff can jump up and bite me in the butt. I've had a few gift ideas for months..but I don't seem to be able to make them until December, when the spirit of the season is upon me. Or is that stress of the season? I dunno, but it's certainly ridiculous. My friend the Efficient Educator suggested actually that it's because I'm at home. If I worked, I'd probably be much more ruthless in my efficiency because there's no time to put things off or think long and hard. You just get it done when you're free to do it. I think there's so much truth in this that I'm embarrassed to be worrying over things I've got to do. Maybe I should just go and do them. No wonder the chocolate is causing me trouble today.
