Cowart's Common Room
Work and Time

When I was working very hard time seemed to expand to cover the work - there was the business and then there was everything else, writing, acting, UNESCO the twinning and so on. Then the work became less but I was as busy as ever as the day shrank to accommodate a reduced workload. Now I am not very busy at all having given up the labels and time has again shrunk. I get up an hour later; I finish an hour sooner. I seem to be busy but the reality is it is just because time has shrunk. You'd think work would expand to fill the time available but in reality it is the other way about.Very Happy

Fairy Nuff's Avatar LaughingI told you you would be as busy as ever Fennie.
Everyone says that happens when you retire.

Camilla's Avatar I retired ages ago but just lately I find I am always on the go around the house and fetching and carrying for HL and sorting out things for him too... I said to myself the other day … how on earth I managed to hold down a full time job in nursing and do everything for the family and all the constant cooking and chores is anyones guess.Very Happy but of course I was younger then and had more energy. I still think that old 24 hour clock keeps shrinking by the minute.
