The following poem was written by one of our members, I’m sure the sentiment will strike a chord with many of us!!
Sitting here deciding and thinking what to do
It really is quite wearing makes me feel quite blue
I should clear out that cupboard throw out all the tat
But I might need it one day so that’s the end of that
Executive decisions they are running through my mind
Should I clean the paintwork or something of that kind?
It’s made me tired thinking of the jobs ahead of me
I’ll have to sit and have a rest and make a cup of tea
You’d think it would be easy to have the time you need
But all I really want to do is sit down and have a read
I feel a little guilty when friends say what they’ve done
But that guilt it soon wears off when I’m sitting in the sun
I get out all the tools to make a garden of perfection
Then it seems that I have lost all sense of my direction
I’m right back in the kitchen now how did I get here
The teapots on the table and I’ll have a cup to cheer
The nasty time is over and things have not been done
Do I regret time wasted when I didn’t even manage one?
I’ve got a lovely sun tan, have read favourite books galore
And the jobs they still awaiting just as they were before
