Procrastination - The action of delaying or postponing something

Hi everyone!

So my University Course has started again - I am doing Primary Education for those that don't know. I mean I complain about it enough so I would be surprised if there was one person that didn't know that. Anyway... it started three weeks ago.

They say Open University is great because you can do the work in your own time as and when. See now that's the problem, I said uni started three weeks ago.

I, however, did not start uni three weeks ago. I was so determined this year to stay on top of everything as it is my penultimate year. I mean it would have been my last year if I hadn't submitted the wrong assignment in my first year! But moving on! So I went out two weeks ago and bought some new stationery, in the hopes that, that would spur me on to start.

It is still new, untouched stationery!

I just can't find the motivation.

You know what's great when you have something important to be doing.


I have cleaned the house, my laundry is up to date - for the first time in about a year. I have watched eight seasons of One Tree Hill in the last month. I stocked up on nappies - although I kind of wish I did this earlier because you know you have no life when you are standing at the Lidl checkout scanning nappies and you say out loud, “Well isn’t that great, the nappy prices have gone up”. Basically, by writing this post I am kind of hoping that I can snap myself out of being so lazy and just start doing it! But truth be told.... it isn't working yet! So I am going to tell you about my day with Aurora at Cotswold Farm Park!

We had Aunty Ted's car for the whole day on Sunday. It was incredible. Like I can't even tell you how amazing it was after two and a half years to have a car again. I felt like a got a little bit of my independence back - even if it was just for the day. So I decided to take Rory to Cotswold Farm Park! We had such a lovely time! Rory kept wanting to move the gear stick for me though - which actually got really annoying! But then she put her hand on top of mine and it felt like one of those really cute movie moments!

So we got to the park and she saw the tractors, we held a bunny rabbit, fed some goats, saw some piglets. We went for a walk and it was so beautiful. I love the countryside. It is one of those places that for me, just makes me feel calm and serene. Aurora was a delight. Literally she was so lovely, the only little hiccup we had was when I wouldn't buy her, her second ice cream, but thank goodness for the distraction of cows and chickens! Although weirdly she decided that she was scared of chickens by the end. She did say she found their "hats" funny looking though. Which I thought was hilarious!

It was such a lovely day, to be honest, it was the first time I had taken her out in the car on my own somewhere and spent the whole day just me and her. Doing that with her was just so lovely. Made me feel like she and I are a proper family. To be honest, I know that doesn't really make much sense but it is something that I have missed, just waking up one morning and decided to jump in the car and go somewhere that doesn't require walking for an hour to get to the train station or having to go to the same places just because they are within walking distance. But alas. It is back to cold mornings and long walks to get anywhere!

But we are happy.

Not motivated in the slightest.

But happy!

Nearly forgot - I have had a ladybird in my room since Saturday. Now usually Aurora is my go-to ladybird catcher. But she has decided that she isn't going to do that for me anymore. So if ANYONE would like to come over and get rid of it for me. I would be so insanely grateful to you.

Many thanks, sincerely
