I have started to call my computer desk "The Abyss"... whenever I sit down here, its like time just disappears from me. Its a black hole, a time-sponge - sometimes I sit down to just quickly reply to one email, and before I know it, 2 hours have gone by and I've become lost doing a zillion other things, and surprisingly very little of it involves social media!
So lately whenever I need to do something quickly on here, I have introduced a new rule - do NOT to sit down - because I know that once I sit, I'll get swallowed up. Normally I'm only woken from my 'engrossed computer twilight zone' by one of the kids appearing at my elbow, asking for something to eat :) I imagine I must appear bleary-eyed and dazed... blinking rapidly like one who has suddenly woken from a dream in a strange place.
And oh my desk is such a mess... yet there is order in my chaos and I know where everything is (unless one of the kids has been stealing my highlighters again). I take comfort in those studies that say a messy desk is the sign of a creative mind - well that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it!
Do you have a technology time-sponge? Is it your phone? Social Media? Or like me is it your computer?
I just loved having handsome little Beau come to visit me in my Tamborine Studio recently, along with his lovely family. Big brother Levi was so excited to get to cuddle his little brother too - those big smiles just say it all, proud brother moment! Bec and Scott your boys are just gorgeous!
