Things to do…

12 June (an hour before midnight)

So many things to do, so little spare time…you must have been in the same predicament yourself. I still haven’t written my intended shadow poem for my Poetry Blog, to accompany last week’s Photo Blog on the theme of ‘Shadows’. Now we are rapidly spiralling through this week’s theme of ‘Reflections’ and the need for another poem looms large! Pressure though can inhibit inspiration, don’t you think?

Then there’s an, as yet unbought, card to buy and send for Father’s Day this Sunday, here in the UK. No excuses, I looked at cards last week, but couldn’t find one I liked. As a Postman, I really don’t have too many excuses, I have stamps and access to postboxes a plenty!!! ONe of my best mates birthday is today, so happy birthday Gareth Jones in Hong Kong. The card (if I’d purchased one that is) will never make it on time! Sorry, but thanks to Facebook and Twitter I think I’m ok. Another social media bale-out.

But on a positive note; I did write a special poem for D-Day, 6 June, I have compiled and scheduled tomorrow’s photo blog, prepared my pack-up (packed lunch) for tomorrow and set early alarm (4.20am). The washing up’s done and I’ve made a new list of things to do! And on that note, the best Things To Do list ever must be David Byrne’s ‘I’ve Tried (Things To Do)’ from ‘The Knee Plays’

I’ve Tried (things to do)

Number 1. Try to (walking quickly) be
Number 2. Count to ten, smile, count to ten

Number 15. Bumpy things
Number 16. Broken things
Number 17. Finding the bank

Perfect, now how about planning completing the above list yourself! I’m off to bed, tomorrow I will study my To Do List and probably only tick off the easy ones!

Good night… 🙂
