It’s really crept up on me, and I’m really surprised that tomorrow is actually my birthday. I think the reason it has crept up on me is that I have been so busy with this domestic appliance stuff. I spent nearly a week trying to sift through the top rated toasters to try and find the best toaster for the money in the price range I wanted to pay. This was then swiftly brought to a close and I was woken up from my trance by my daughter getting hurt when she banged her head at school.
And I suppose with my job and other things going on I just lost sight of the fact it is my birthday. Thankfully my husband has not forgotten and has booked as a table at a nice restaurant for tomorrow night. So that’s one benefit, because I have to say if it had been his birthday tomorrow I would have forgotten completely, I really have been away with the faeries thinking about domestic appliances and toasters, and I suppose I need to get my head straight. I did say in a previous post that I suffer from procrastination and wonder if it’s a child hood thing where decisions were made for me so much that I have got used to just having things done for me.
I have actually spoken to my my husband about that and he said he does think that it is a small issue, and he has felt he has had to make decisions for us in the past rather than shared ones. But he did point out that I am a manager at work and I make decisions every day, and I don’t procrastinate then, so it’s a case of confidence in knowing what I’m making decisions about, rather than just generally being frozen in that situation.
Anyway, the toaster has arrived as has the food blender and I am now sorting out those on the other things which are going into the kitchen to give it the makeover. It’s exciting and fun and hopefully it will then allow me to move on and do something else.
