An attack of the “I’ll justs”

I had two things on my list today – go for a run (it is Juneathon, after all) and complete the first draft of an OU assignment.

Then, the “I’ll justs” kicked in.

I’ll just lie here in bed a little longer.

I’ll just watch the first ten ultra-runners finish Comrades in a time that beggars belief.

I’ll just brush the cat.

I’ll just watch a few more people finish Comrades.

I’ll just have lunch.

I’ll just watch Bruce Fordyce and Zola Pieterse (nee Budd) finish Comrades.

I’ll just read some Juneathon blogs.

I’ll just brush the cat a little more.

O hell, it’s 6pm.

So – what do I have to show for my day?

A mile-long run around the block.

A complete first draft of an OU assignment.

And a whole load of cat fluff.

  1. Wow how much cat fluff? Your cat must be bald now! Well done on the mile round the block – if it’s raining here tomorrow my run will only be 2 miles!

    Is that the furs draft of your TMA n the photo?

    There is a woman in America that makes bags and purses out of peoples pets fur, You have toi collect a kg of it or something like that and post it off to her. Could be a juneathon target for you…

  11. Crafting With Cat Hair is available on Amazon for less than a tenner, how can you resist a strap line like ‘cute handicrafts you can make with your cat’?

    Also, I read Bruce Fordyce as Bruce Forsyth, which was somewhat confusing and unsettling…

    Impressive combing. I plan to show that pic to my husband, who swears he vacuums enough cat hair to make us another cat… each week! I can’t wait to suggest he craft with it… (chuckle)

    Congrats on your Jubilee Bank Holiday Parkrun, too. Sounded like much fun. That whole Jubilee thing… even more fun!
