If even I was in doubt that procras was a problem for me, I should remember a day like yesterday. I know I must be compassionate towards myself, but really I find it difficult to see how someone who can avoid as much as I do can deserve compassion. Not a helpful view, but it's how I am feeling.

Things I need to get done today, as opposed to tomorrow or the day after: 

  • finish invoicing and then do whatever is required to get them over to the client. done 4 poms - man that was like pulling teeth.
  • SD - Write to do list
  • SD - List of missing invoices done 1 pom
  • **FEED C**
  • SD - Call suppliers
  • SD - Review VAT journal & Post
  • CM - Email P re Jan plan and date for exp


Things that need to be done but not today:

  • SD final clean up & email to T
  • Finish your invoicing inc W
  • WS details of notifications required
  • Tree down
  • SD more paperwork
  • SD FP and contract
  • MLR
  • WS date
  • WS finish bank recon
  • WS review missing items
  • WS collect 
  • Email M re bday money
  • Write project schedule for Jan & beyond.

@ Jalla

Thank you for the wonderful starter. I am feeling quite bad towards myself at the moment, and this has reminded that I perhaps should try to be kinder.

@ Knitfisher

Solidarity to you Knitfisher. I didnt get back to the computer yesterday so apologies my late reply to you.  Hang in there. We can be soooooo hard on ourselves. A tiny step at a time we will get there with a big dash of kindness to ourselves (even if we have to act as if for a while!!!). You are not on your own. We are all in the same boat and  we are here for you. I hope you have a good day today. I will be sending you a big hug through the computer!! Solidarity! xoxox
