The Lazy Post

image
So I wake up in the morning feeling like P Diddy  an icicle, both the fires have gone out, it’s freezing cold and I’m pretty sure if I look out the window I will see a mammoth, a sloth and a baby staring at me. 
Today is also Friday, Friday the day before the weekend, weekend and frankly, today I don’t feel like doing anything, nothing at all. Well apart from seeing how many songs and movies I can plagerise within the first two paragraphs of this post that is.
But alas for me it’s going to be a busy one. Friends for lunch, others for dinner, SIL+BIL tomorrow for lunch, MIL+FIL for afternoon tea, somewhere in that I need to fit in an 80km round trip to the shops and try to stop myself buying chocolate- then I need to have the strength to throw away any chocolate that I do buy. Work on Sunday where I must stop myself buying Mc Donald’s for lunch. Ugh.
 Something about school holidays just makes me want to sleep in and do nothing. Even though the kids wake up at 5am regardless, part of me reverts back to my teenage school girl self and I simply can’t get out of bed.
I lie here thinking about how I should get up and light the fires, make some bread, feed the chooks, tidy the house for today’s first wave of visitors, you know productive stuff. But instead I roll over making sure to keep the warm doona over my shoulders and pluck my lap top from my bedside table and start reading blog posts and yelling things like ‘stop fighting!’, ‘share!’ and ‘do you want your friends to come over or not?’ from beneath my doona. Oh that’s class act parenting right there.
I’m a procrastinator from way back, so in my usual fashion rather than facing the day, I decided to type this blog post about nothing at all.
What type of person are you? Do you procrastinate or sieze the day? Are you reading this from bed too or were you up at 5am going for a jog?  
To make it feel like I am doing something, let’s call this a Blog Flog (see, sounds much more energetic) and add it to FlogYoBlog Friday, hosted of course by Glowless, head over there and link yourself up!

I'm a night owl. I would quite happily go to bed at 12 and wake up at 8. Hubs is the complete opposite, he is up at 5 every morning but is useless by about 9pm. But unfortunately the baby seems more like him :( Good Luck with your busy weekend!

Hahaha! I can totally relate! If hubby is home I more often than not am a huge procrastinator. If he's at work early in the morning I have to get up. It's bloody rude! Loved this post!

Not only am I reading this in bed (on vacation), I didn't wake up until 1:00 this afternoon! I have taken Lady of Leisure status to an all time high and may be in need of an intervention soon.
So, I say no worries! Snuggle under and enjoy the moment!:)

Hehe... Glad i'm not the only one who does this.
Up at 5am going for a jog! Are you serious? I was sound asleep at this time, it was more like 7:30 and i only got up so i could yell at the noisy man out side my house for waking me up hehe

Oh Robyn, I understand! All my kids seem to have inherited the 'early riser' status. Ugh.

Glad I'm not the only one Daisy!

1:00 Nicky! Oh how lovely... Enjoy your vacation while it lasts!

Me & My Monkeys, Exactly the way it should be!
