This Is.... what I do with a spare 10 minutes

More aptly, this is what I DON'T do when I don't have a spare 10 minutes!! (I'm a day late with this one).

If I see a window of opportunity at a sociable hour I'll make a phone call to my parents, a sibling or a friend. I don't get out to see people much, so have to make contact occasionally.

Mostly my spare 10 minutes happens after 10pm so it's a choice of
this....

or

this....

or this.


Somehow I justify ALL of them as "kind of working" because they're related to work in a kind of sort of I can almost justify not writing pattern instructions kind of way..... sort of. Other times I just relax and enjoy a bit of me-time in the blogosphere and a bit of online retail-therapy.

Sometimes - VERY OCCASIONALLY - I get to sit down with a cup of tea and drink it WHILE IT'S STILL HOT! .....Ah, HEAVEN!

Thanks to Hoppo Bumpo for this week's theme, and to Handmaiden for hosting in Three Buttons absence.

That is so funny, I thry to consider time spent drooling over fabric as work. If your house is like our at least the cold tea goes with the cold toast

LOL...I am more likely to interrupt my computer time for 10 minutes of housework etc. But I do vary what I do on the computer so that's good...right???

I like doing all those thing too (and in great quantities) ... its a pity I can't say that any of it is "kind of work"!
