I’ve been sitting on the sofa knitting socks quite a lot this week. Nothing very momentous to report other than that they are nearly finished, and that they seem to be taking ages!
Which got me to thinking….
Skipping around the internet and reading some of the blogs that I follow regularly I am amazed by the level of productivity, not to mention creativity, that some people manage to achieve. How do they do it? Moreover how do they manage to create so much and still have a functioning life? I mean when do they do the laundry, the cleaning, the shopping, not to mention when do they go to work?
I’m not sure if there are lots of people out there doing snippets of lots of projects, but finishing none – which would make for bright and varied blogging, but a heck of a lot of UFOs, or if I’m just REALLY SLOW. Trying to get stuff actually finished is clearly a slow process. How many times have I subjected you to photos of the same pair of socks? Too many probably – feel free to tell me if that’s true!
If anyone out there has a tip on how to find several extra creative hours in the day and still have a functioning life, I’d love to hear it!
To change the subject rather….last night two of the teenagers and I went to see this French film. It’s the story of a quadriplegic aristocrat and the black ex-criminal guy who accidentally ends up caring for him. If you get the chance, do check it out. It’s breaking all records as the most-viewed film ever in France. It’s based on a true story and is wickedly funny, but poignant at the same time – 17 million French people are not wrong.
Have a wonderful – and creative weekend!
