My Busy, Busy Life (Not)

When helping a poorly friend recently by delivering some groceries to her when she was too ill to get out of the house, I lost my favourite reading glasses. Sainsbury’s said that no-one had handed them in. It’s a mystery, frankly, as I normally wear them on the top of my head but I bumped into someone I hadn’t seen for eight years – a judge, no less – and it threw me. End result?  No glasses and no shopping list with the judge’s email address scribbled on the back of it.

Which led to me being a bit sad about the loss until I managed to get another pair exactly the same in remaindered stock – yee ha!  And they arrived yesterday with a copy of the beautiful doodad-filled catalogue. I don’t let this company put me on their postal mailing list as I try not to shop like that. I don’t want the temptations of a gift catalogue as that tends to lead to a house full of clutter, sparkly things I thought I wanted but I fall out of love with pretty quickly if I am brutally honest with myself.

But there was something in the catalogue which caught my eye, a journal called My Busy Busy Life. It’s a spiral bound notebook (gotta love a notebook) in all sorts of pretty candy colours and an appealing cartoon of a multi-tasking woman on the front who looks in control and happy and efficient being busy, busy.

There have been times in my life when I would have snatched up such a beauty, a bargain at only £6.50. It would have helped me to be even more efficient with “notes, addresses, things to do, people to call, shopping lists and anything I must not forget”. It’s hardback and described as beautifully illustrated. If you’ve got a busy, busy life you’ll want one for these for sure.

Once I had a busy, busy life and all that busyness made me feel important. Today my life is anything but busy, busy and I’ve come to know what’s important.

    Oooh thanks, Anne, good catch. Will fix the typo forthwith. One thing we’ve discovered about Captcha is to keep using the “get a new challenge” button until you find something more readable.

    Dearest Judith, what a delightful Freudian slip… “and anything I must not forger”…Anne
    Also, and this is probably not a revelation to most people I’ve discovered that if I read your captcha text with my head tilted like an owl it’s much easier to read…
