I live in a permanent state of guilt.
As I sit down today to begin typing on my keyboard,
I look around and think,
“I should get up and do something”.
I can see the layer of dust on the fireplace,
and the floor needs hoovering,
I know I should start to make lunch,
and what about all that ironing?
I haven’t made my bed yet,
nor cleared away the morning dishes.
The kids return to school this week,
and the books and uniforms are yet to be bought.
I have quite a number of phone calls to make,
and a mountain of paperwork to attend to.
I have so much to do,
that I don’t know where to start.
I just stay where I am and keep on typing.
Sadly it has no effect whatsoever,
on the chores that need doing,
but as I lose myself in my blog,
I forget about dust, dishes, lunch,
and, dare I admit it, children.
As I type my latest “masterpiece”,
I feel happy, satisfied, proud,
and would you believe it,
I feel not one ounce of guilt.
I highly recommend it.
