Musings - SPIN CYCLE

Spin Cycle Topic - BAD HABITS.

I had to really think about this one. I have so many habits that on reflection are a hinderence so I found it hard to talk about only one.

You see... I crack my toes, leave half drunk glasses of drink all over the house (for the record I am not anticipating an alien landing), spend a fortune on books, am blind to the mess, miss out third gear when I am driving, sing in the shower, daydream at inappropriate moments, play with my iPhone when I should be asleep, have a new celebrity crush every week, read all the movie credits, drink Cappuccinos even though I don't like coffee, save photos to my desktop... the list goes on and on.

I am sure if you ask my husband he will give you a whole load of my bad habits that I have failed to think of.

But my worst Bad Habit is that I never finish anything. I have half read books, half written stories, half collected collections, half painted paintings, pots without plants, resultions that are never fulfulled, plans that get abandoned mid-plot and again the list goes on and on.

I am sure if you ask my husband...

I guess I should give you a more specific example? Hmm, right, got one.

Back in April a few days after the birth of Katharine, I decided that I wanted something in the nursery with her name on. As both her first and middle names are both 'difficult' to spell (it would seem) I thought it would be a good idea to get the right spellings as big as possible on her wall. I wanted to do it before Katharine went from the moses basket to her own room. So I bought some letters, and some crafty bits like paper, beeds, butterflies and of course glue, and then did nothing.

That was in April.

In May I finally got around to giving the letters a base coat of 'muddy puddle' emulsion. But that was in May. Katharine moved in to her nursery.

In June I finally got around to decorating the letters with the paper and the beads and the butterflies. But that was in June. Katharine learned how to smile and find her toes.

In July I finally got around to painting the canvas which I intended to stick the letters to. But (are you sensing a pattern) that was in July. Katharine started being fussy with her milk so we started giving her some baby rice.

It's now August and the letters still are not on the nursery wall. I sometimes wonder if they will ever get finished. It would be a shame if they didn't as so far they look lovely...

Don't you agree?

Reading back I have changed my mind, in an effort to make sure I finish them I am scrapping this as my bad habit... No longer do I not finish things... I just take a REALLY long time. :) xx


  1. HAH! It's not that i don't finish...I just take a long time. Love it. Thanks for the laughs.

  2. My hubby has this same habit--he takes a reaaaallllyyyy long time to finish things.

  3. I think a lot of people have difficulty finishing things. That's a habit I don't

  4. Just kidding... I guess I have more trouble starting things rather than finishing them.

  5. :) CaJoh... you tickled my funny bone. xx


Go on... say it. :) xx
