The Perils Of Being Bored

‘Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?’ L.M.Montgomery

Today is Easter Monday, the last day of a 4 day weekend. The Tuesday morning alarm clock is creeping upon me way too quickly for my liking. I love that I am a list maker, someone who likes to be productive and organised yet equally I really look forward to those days when I have absolutely nothing planned. The days where if I don’t want to, then I don’t have to leave the sofa all day. Today was one of those days. Yet on the day itself all I feel is guilt for doing sod all, restlessness and boredom. I do appreciate not having any plans, especially if it’s turning into a busy month and I really look forward to the times when I can just chill. So why do I now feel like I have wasted the entire day?

Martin has kindly reminded me though that actually I have managed to fit in a huge lie in, sausage sandwiches, multiple episodes of Games of Thrones, my knitting project has grown a couple of inches, the bathroom has been cleaned and for dinner we treated ourselves to Bodeans takeaway. So on paper it’s been a fairly steady day. I’m still in two minds as to whether this makes it a good day or a bad day.

Here is the latest DIY project I have been working on. I’ve been creating my rag rug since November and very slowly it’s starting to take shape. Made out of old t-shirts which I cut into strips and then knotted together, my rag rug, when complete, will make an excellent bathmat. Who knows when I shall complete it, I will make sure to update you once this happens though.
