Doing Nothing is Sometimes the Hardest Thing

Sunday 20th December:
Day Seventeen.

A very relaxing day - unheard of!
We spent most of the day in bed, sleeping, chatting, and watching stuff on BBC iPlayer, YouTube and the like. A success! A relaxing day, don't you see, is a huge achievement for the stressed-out, het-up workaholic.

Then, just as I thought there would be nothing to tell you (again!), I found the missing Bukowski DVD. It's been troubling me for over a week now. Can you guess where it was? Behind the bloody bed, that's where, between the mattress and the wall. I'm sure I'd looked there...

Now it's ready to go back to the library, taking all the stress and guilt with it. :)

Hey, doing nothing is GOOD: I even found this blog about it! It recommends starting small:
"Doing nothing, in the true sense of the word, can be overwhelming if you attempt to do too much nothing at once. Do small nothings at first." I like that!

  1. I like the sound of that! We live in such a weird culture - simultaneously striving to be as busy as possible and escape as far away as possible. No wonder we find it hard to master doing nothing!
