Pracrastination - 1 1/2 years...... time to fix 3 minutes!

Can you believe it. I have been trying to finish jobs. Not only crafty ones but around the house, outside, in the garden etc. I never used to be a procrastinator but now I am. (some of that is I would rather spend the time with Aaron or the boys or doing crafting).

So today I stopped procrastinating on three things;
Procrastination - at least 1.5 years, frustration - HUGE, fix 3 minutes
Oh my goodness, this is the wheel to my laundry basket. Every time I have used the laundry basket, for at least the last 1.5 years but possibly more, I have had to reattach the bolt the holds the frame together before I could use it. Then yesterday the wheel fell off too. So today I fixed them both. Think of all that time wasted putting the bolt in every time.

Procrastination 6 months, fix 10 minutes
This is the wiring for the wisteria. I have two white wisteria climbing up the deck roof. In Autumn I put in the screws and wired up the other side of the roof for that wisteria but ran out of hooks. I did buy more pretty soon but NEVER finished the job. A small job and no problem, but I had to get things from the garage to do it and I was just too plain lazy!!

Procrastination 4 months, fix 1 minute, Frustration - daily
My father made me this very comfortable kneeler to use when gardening. I love it as our paths around the garden are river stones and this is soooooo comfortable. The handle came off. I put it on the deck, two months later I put it in the garage. Only now have I found longer screws and put them in - guess what? I also did it to the other handle as it was looking wobbly and another 4 month procrastination is just not right!!!


  1. thank you for visiting my blog! I too have become quite the procrastinator - I'd rather be quilting! Good for you for actually saying enough and fixing these things. Isn't it amazing what we will put up with?
    You're a no response blogger, so I hope you don't mind my answering your questions here? I don't use a stencil with my quilting, completely free motion. No tutorial on this one - a swirl centre and then feather plumes surrounding it. Hope you give it a try!

    1. Thanks so much for that instruction. i know that I am no reply - a long story. Maybe I will put a wee comment on my profile so people know. Cheers

  2. One wonders why we do it to ourselves! go you - what a satisfying list of things to tick off!

  3. Our busy lives force us to be procrastinators ... well, that's my excuse, anyway :)


Thanks so much for stopping by. I love that you took time out to comment on my blog.

The first of the season's raspberries

Picked today, the first real pick of about about 500 grams of raspberries. Oh so delicious. I was laughing at myself as I was picking. ...
