Life is a balancing act....

Photo: Rodney Smith

Do you ever have one of those days where you have lots to do and everything is a priority task?

Well today is one of those days for me, I have given the skirting its second coat and should be painting some alcoves but have a french lesson in a little over an hour and had not done my homework.

I also have a tax return to prepare but need to find last year's return and I am not sure where I put it so may end up spending some hours hunting for it :-(

And this all started because I had to go and collect the most fabulous antique mirror last night and as a result spent a lot of time this morning trying to work out exactly what era it came from....when I should have been painting.

Hence the photo that I posted also has a fabulous mirror in it, note this is a little larger than the one that I bought last night.

Had better go, I have homework to do!

  2. Ay yi yi! You have a lot on your plate (no pun intended through the photo). If it makes you feel any better, this morning I stepped into my pants BACKWARDS! I hope this is not a sign of things to come throughout the day :)

  5. You are so right... BALANCE is truly the key to get it all done. It amazes me how delicate a day is. Be sure to throw some fun into your day today to keep it all balanced. I think this is why there is teatime~

  6. What a lovely dilemma you have. My day.... mammogram, Costco run, sick two year old, newsletter update, loads of laundry from weekend of swimmng, finish planting petunias and nicotiana. I feel like a juggler.

    Your mirror must be fantatic. Happy day to you!

  14. Oh I feel your pain! I am 'helping' four of my friends plan their weddings this year...guess they really enjoyed ours....and it is turning in to a full-time job (with no pay) but problem is I have a job, a couple jobs and am having a hard time prioritizing it all. Brides seem to all have tunnel vision and I now know why wedding planners get so much $. Arrr!
