This is the place for time wasters and procrastinators for after we’ve frozen the beans, pickled the cucumbers and done a rain dance…

    Go to Google and type the word Cat then click on the paw print 

    When you’re bored with that try to delete the word Cat. 😖 

    Have the sound on.

    Mr C’s viewing of choice.  If you ever exhaust the internet’s supply you can move on to spoon carving 😳

    I sometimes wonder what I'd do without my tablet. Would I become really productive or would I go mad or sink into depression? Would I manage without the  whys ,whats, whos and wheres that I can check on Google and forget the answer within minutes?
    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • Life is too short for wasting time. I was put on this planet to do useful things.

    Having a bit of fun is time we’ll spent …. I’ve done more than my share of useful things … still do some of ‘em … but now’s  my time to be self indulgent, sometimes silly and have a lot of fun. 

    Life is so good (despite the rest of the world) that I sometimes want to lay on the ground and kick my legs in the air … but I’d probably have to get OH to help me up again 🤣

    I’ve lived long enough to have gone through the “being useful” and “getting things done” philosophy.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that whether you do something or don’t do it, time will even out the effects so you might as well save your energy and do nothing.

    It’s kinder to the planet as well.

    Off for a lie down. 🙂

    @Dovefromabove, taking time for yourself is so important, it's never time wasted 😊. It recharges the batteries and gives you the ability to cope with the ' full on ' days .
