Possibly one of the most irritating (but conversely, soothing) things about learning differences is how much of a stickler you need to be to get through your day. For me, it’s time keeping. I cannot function without some sort of timepiece. I was able to tell the time well, before I could read. I plan journeys to the minute. And as for being late…no, just NO!
This morning I woke up to the sound of my phone informing me of an incoming text at 6:40am, and on seeing the time I groaned at the prospect of losing almost an hour of my morning. Not only do I like to keep time, I also like to get up early and start my day in the blissful morning peace, with the darkness beyond the window as my companion, and if possible, before the birds wake up.
So, I didn’t quite manage to get everything I wanted to do before the kids and birds were up this morning, and I am still trying to catch up! Tidying up my office space isn’t on the cards, so this is pretty much my space as of 4 minutes ago. I am very blessed to have such a great space to write and work in. And, this is one of two great spaces I have! My studio space is just as wonderful.
Studio space photo really does need updating! This photo was taken just before I gave the presentation I had to give to join the art group. It is a lovely place to work…although this space looks rather bare! Doesn’t look like that now. Maybe a studio tour post will be worth doing at some point in the future?
However! I digress! Another thing that is good at eating up my time is getting side-tracked and distracted – I am a bit of a magpie for that, which is probably why time is so important as it serves to remind me to get back on the ‘right’ path!
And today I am writing my business plan…yeah, right 😉
