Even About Time Is Always About Time?
I am shattered and knackered and tired and all combined makes for one totally run down dude!’ .. l am not even sure what l am actually running on? Adrenaline? Nervous Energy? Reserves? Not sure, or maybe it’s all relative to Time … l am not out of Time, but l am running on Time Reserves or Time Energies. I am seriously not that sure ……..
l do know l am exhaustedly tired physically and mentally though and yet l get up, for the last five days specifically it’s been awake at 5.45am and out of bed at 6am and starting to load up the car from 6.35am just after coffee and attending to my emails if l am able to. Most mornings it has been leaving here in Kingsdown just before 7am to arrive in Sandwich at 7.20am with a full car. It has been loaded with all sorts of things but mostly soils and gardening items.
We leave early because Suze has to log on to her work station at home at 8am. She works from 8 – 5pm Monday to Friday with 45 minutes lunch and during the lunchtime she gets back in the car and drives over to Sandwich to collect me, drive me back and then she grabs a quick bite and starts work again. Luckily working from home allows this – if she was office bound, this would be all very awkward.
When l get back l start work in the garden again and continue along with various tasks. Like today up early, went to bed Tuesday night at midnight shattered, didn’t sleep that well, got up 5.45am. Loaded car, was in Sandwich slightly later however on account of breaking down Suze’s bed getting ready for the buyers to collect it .
Got to Sandwich at 7.35am was there till 12.35pm – working in the garden – on what l thought was my ‘last’ soil day, was wrong have one more soil day to come 🙁 Got back and had a quick bite of lunch and went out into the garden at 2pm to continue the deconstruction this time, weeding, digging out empty containers and switching over the water butts which involved carting a continuous stream of water buckets … very tiring work carting heavy water. Finished in garden at 5pm, had a much needed shower then started to load the car up to take stuff over to Suze’s new house.
By the time we both got back home it was just after 7pm.
Everything is About Time – even when it’s about time itself, everything is always about time – have you noticed that? I mean where have you been if you haven’t?
Another day passing and l am struggling to write anything let alone string sentences together in comprehension, so l do hope this Question post makes sense!
Have you noticed how people will tell you very quickly and keenly that they simply ‘Don’t have Time to do stuff?’ Yet, that’s not totally true – l mean we ALL have time available don’t we?
Right? Do we? Or am l speaking the truth or Martian bollocks?
So let’s run a small test right here and right now – l mean l am dead tired right now, l am creating this post, l want to go to bed and sleep, but l also have to create the postdated Hello for tomorrow morning and attend to other things and will not be in bed till around [hopefully 11.30pm] … l have a busy day again tomorrow over at Suze’s and Sandwich in the evening. Friday 17th is the day the furnishings move out – which will be another busy busy day. BUT, l find the Time to create these things despite my tiredness because l want to and because l like it.
How difficult or easy is it for you to find the Time to do the things you want to when you are pushed for Time?
Look at the grid below and each Time Slot and then let me know how easy or difficult it is to find that ‘Free Time’ you need to do stuff you like doing in your normal day… but equally tell me what you do in that free slot of time and why that pocket of Time is so valuable to you should you manage to find it?
