Slow day at work

I find it frustrating that when I’ve got time to kill at work that I don’t make the most of it and spend a bit more time at home doing all the things that when I’m there I always think I don’t have enough time to do. When I’m working 10 hour days 6 days a week I always wish I had the change to get to so-and-so shop or get the ironing done or take an hour out for myself. Yet when I have the opportunity to do so, I always find reasons to stay in the office – I feel so guilty for not being there. It’s ridiculous really and a great win for the company that they’ve employed people who work way over normal hours and don’t ever seem to even it out by doing way under normal hours another time. I thought about heading out of the office at about 3pm yesterday but when I came to write the list of things I wanted to get done I just couldn’t think of one thing! Well, clean the oven … but that’s a real mood thing and I wasn’t it that mood! And no good dreaming up a hobby because as soon as I get into it work will ramp up again and I’ll have to let it fall by the wayside.

You need to have a standing ‘todo’ list for time out of work 🙂
