Happy New Year to everyone, and may you enjoy your procrastinating in 2015!

I'm putting off tackling a load of hen stuff (domestic tasks) by doing this, is my excuse...

Heading of topic edited to reflect seasonal conditions...

I'm not really procrastinating. I am refuelling with cheese and oatmeal biscuits before heading outside to do couple of jobs.

I am keen to go outside and get cold... I just need to finish the cheese first ;-)

We believe you, Jayne!

I'm having a quick break from sharing info with some of my cousins about a family funeral on Monday (mixture of facebook and e-mails) and answering an enquiry from a friend about the Lit Soc archive I look after. But it's almost time to go and eat cold beef and salad anyway.

I have been procrastinating all day with a jigsaw and some up-market colouring in. Lovely pencils that you can then wash over with a water-brush to kid yourself you are painting :)

Lots of them around Ariel. The Caran d'Ache Aquarelle are on Amazon or ebay, Derwent Inktense or Aquatone also - or I guess at any art shop?

Not cheap though but since these are my daughter's and she has had them for about 30 years I guess they pay their way!

We've just started the jigsaw we were given for Christmas today - very good procrastination tool :D

Edges sorted and done in the daylight, then a bit of time just now over coffee, sorting some of the main colours on to trays...

Whereas my damaged back went *ping* this morning as I got dressed, and left me in such sudden agony that I didn't dare move from the spot for quite a while. So I'm now trying very hard to keep as still as I can and am lying here reading all my lovely Christmas books. How can I complain? :mrgreen:

Oh, I do sympathise. Get well soon!

Oh, Mary, what bad luck! Hope it feels better soon. Book therapy is always good...

I have procrastinated on Twitter, over email, and via Wordfeud's chat function, so now I'm moving over here to procrastinate some more.

I am in essay hell once again, I have to get 4000 words written by tomorrow, and I have only written about 40 (which Word wants to count as about 140, because it is including footnotes, which sadly don't count towards our word limit).

I have tried to cajole Miss Annersley into helping, but she's not really the cajole-able type (I've tried threats too, but she doesn't respond well to those either) *sigh*

I hate essays. Why did I decide to put myself through another year of this?

I've probably produced about 4000 procrastination-related words today, but sadly they do not count towards my word limit. Woe is me. :(

Oh gosh, Eleanore, that sounds stressful...

*sends chocolate and coffee to help you get through the ordeal*

Thanks, Abi :) You don't want to write an opening paragraph for me, do you? *looks at Abi in a wildly hopeful and desperately optimistic fashion*

I'm sewing tablecloths. I dearly wish I weren't....

Well I'm about to spend an hour in an industrial fridge

Swap ?!

In fairness I've cut all the pieces now, just need to pin and sew the beasts...

I'm supposed to be preparing the introduction to my thesis, but I'm playing the Fauré Requiem instead. Well, that and feeding grapes to a poorly chicken.

Poor thing - they are also very fond of tuna (but be careful of oil on worktops :) ) and of natural yoghurt. I'll PM you a link to a picture of a special diet I once gave one of ours!

No thanks, I'd rather do the fridge stuff. Besides, my sewing skills are rather limited.

Today I have been amusing myself with a private game of Lost In Translation :) well, it livens up writing lists of madrigals and gregorian chant.
