Do you ever have a big job coming up, and it kind of looms in the back of your subconscious causing you a bit more stress than it ought to?
I guess it’s the anticipation or unknown of doing it that causes the stress for me –
What could potentially go wrong?…
What if I get sick or the kids get sick & we don’t make deadline?…
What if the materials don’t arrive in time?…
I’m sure you get the idea!
Well I have had 2 of those huge jobs on in the background of my brain causing me stress this month. Well far more than 2 if I’m honest (ummm… shall I admit to being in too many swaps at one time? No, surely not 😉 ) but 2 really huge big ones that are also very “worky” (read: not as fun as swaps!) on top of my already busy work & home schedule.
So that’s why I’ve been seemingly uber productive recently. Because I just didn’t want to leave everything to the last minute & have a nervous break down if it all went pear shaped or anything. Or with the anticipation of it all happening either for that matter.
I joke – but it could easily happen!
So I’m very happy to report that 1 of these big jobs came to an end today after a productive days
ignoring my children work….
Don’t worry child protection I don’t very often ignore them! (They create too much noise & make it too hard to for a start 😉 )
Another 30 t-shirts are sitting finished on my desk ready to be delivered to a friends house tomorrow ready for the conference next week. This is the final batch.
So that leaves 1 more big looming job to go.
– My tax.
But since it has to be at the accountant by 31st October at the absolute latest, I can no longer avoid it.
In which case guess what my week entails!
But for now I’m going to forget about that one small minor detail and relish in the fact that one of those big jobs is finished. And enjoy having my feet up and drinking my beer I might add…
|Only thing we had to drink in the house, so I didn’t have much choice of beverage!|
Job done = Bliss!
Yay me for pushing through and making myself get it done today so I can enjoy my week more….
