OK, Blu has confessed to not having time to change a leaky tampon (!), the other day I thought to myself, 'I don't have time to eat an apple!"
Of course, if I wasn't on MN I would have time....but anyway...what don't you have time for anymore.

Drink a hot mug of tea.

(unless I'm at work, when I drink loads )

Ironing. I refuse to make time for it...

I never have time to put the cork back in a half empty bottle of wine - therefore I have to drink it all in one sitting

nailpolish, do you get to the point where you almost wet yourself and think "oh i should have gone for a pee 4 hrs ago when i first thought of it.."??

Decorating my dingy house.

nailpolish Tue 05-Apr-05 12:44:40

hunkermunker Tue 05-Apr-05 12:44:45

Found it Aloha - and also the context, which made it better - the thoughts I was having!

Tidying up my loft. I don't know why I feel the need for it to be tidy - I don't know anyone else who has a tidy loft but it bothers me.

Also, I never relax, although I don't know if it's because I don't have time or I actually can't relax. I'm always pottering/cleaning/tidying/sorting/planning/cooking/MNing. Even if everything's clean/tidy/planned/cooked I'll still find stuff to do. How sad. DH doesn't have that problem at all - he's very good at relaxing!

Getting my hair coloured by the hairdresser. I've just eaten an apple, but I'm at work so that gives me time to do lots of things I wouldn't be able to do at home.

sorrel Tue 05-Apr-05 14:13:44

i don't have time to sit her MNeting!Am blocking out the tumble-weeds of cat hair floating across the floor.

fruitful Tue 05-Apr-05 14:39:16

Hee-hee. I'm sitting here listening to ds slowly wake up and knowing he'll want a massive long feed, and thinking I need a pee first - but have I got off MN? No...

And I've been longing for a bath ever since ds was born 7wks ago but I'm far too tired in the evening and its not gonna happen in the day (unless dd comes in too and I have to listen to comments about my cs scar and my hairy legs and other hairy bits!). Must have one at the weekend.
