I do it to myself

I leave everything to the last minute. It seems sensible at the time - until the last minute arrives and I realise, whoops, it's not long enough.

Monday I have my book launch - have I mentioned that? Oystermouth Library, 7.00 pm? (My boss has thoughtfully arranged a church meeting to clash with my launch so I won't have to worry about too many people coming. He's supportive like that.)

And tomorrow morning I'm leading the service in prison. Two big things, both need preparation, and I've got to fit in food shopping and a party tonight. (I'm delighted to go to Debs and Nick's 25th anniversary do, I just wish it wasn't tonight.) But, as I said, it's my own fault for leaving it until now. 

I've prepared the talk for prison; I just need to rehearse it and tweak it here and there. And then I've got the rest of Sunday - oh bother, Father's day, I have to look after Husband in the absence of children. Perhaps we'll postpone it a week ... or two. 

And, really, I shouldn't be procrastinating now. I'll just quickly check my emails before I go and shower ...

Enjoy the party - let me know of any good ideas - it's our 25th next year. xx

I hope all went well with your book launch, exciting for you! :)

I, on the other hand, am a planner - equally as bad, Liz.

Good luck with the book launch.... I'm thinking of having an album launch for my forthcoming album but the fear of standing in front of just the ever supportive but frankly most be getting fed up by now family and nobody else means I'll probably bottle it and not do anything!

Good luck on the book launch and I know the prison lesson will be great as I know your passion for that ministry.

I gave your book a plug in a recent blog. Persons in US are not yet accustomed to buying books as only e-books, at least here. It is my next book to read. Right now I am stilled mired down in a tell dig in Israel with Michenor. It may take a year to finish his epic, although
nice love story running through it.

You'll make it through the procrastination. I do quite a bit of that myself. And I am retired.
