Yesterday I... oh, I can barely bring myself to say it:
I really did! I spent about 2 hours taking and uploading photographs of something I designed, and wrapping a present, and then I went for a run (which I am still feeling today, ow ow owie), and then I spent about 3 hours backing up all my photographs with the shiny new CDs I purchased on the weekend. And then I toyed with supper ideas, and wiped down the top of my stove and dusted the fan cover over it.
The trouble was that the only project still left standing - apart from the novel, for which I am still not ready - was another very daunting design thing. I was scared to start.
Fortunately, I recovered in the evening and made good headway on the sample and even worked out a neat technique to solve the problem that was scaring me.
Moral of the story: If you're going to spend a whole day putting off the inevitable, you might as well accept it and clean the bathroom. Because nobody cares much about the top of the fan cover for the stove.
