Despite my foggy shuffling around, I have achieved SO much today. The flat is sparkling, I've been in constant contact with a client and a designer regarding a project, I've picked up a prescription and done laundry. During my normal working week of being away from the home from 9am to 6pm some of these small chores seem completely inachievable. When will I get a chance to go to a chemist? The cats are out of food, but the pet shop is only open whilst I'm at work?
The recent report suggesting that a 21 hour working week would be a beneficial to a lot of people makes real sense to me. So many of us overwork, then over consume because we're time poor. Distributing the working hours means that more people get a chance to work and we all have increased spare time to try to live in a more balanced and sustainable way.
In the meantime, roll on April 16th. My last day at my office job! Have a great weekend, dudes. (The quilt in the picture was handmade by Made By White's mother and sister. I can't tell you how much I want one!)
