Procrastination

In retirement it is all too easy to put off various housekeeping tasks with the thought "I can do that tomorrow".

Today I realised that "I can do that tomorrow" can lead to many "tomorrows".

So I decided that today was tomorrow, and that I should wash, dry and iron my curtains which have been gathering dust and  grime for many a day.

In fact, I have not washed them since May 2011 when I did so in anticipation of the visit of my brother Martyn and his son Sam.

(They did not notice!).

So all those over 700 "tomorrows" ended "today".  I have beautifully  washed, dried and ironed curtains.

Phew -  the next "curtain washing tomorrow"  will be in 2015
