Instead I've become the mistress of displacement activity. Over the past week, I've cleaned out the understairs cupboard (convincing myself it was a metaphor for my mind!) and then on finding a dead mouse, I went a bit barmy and commissioned a carpenter to line the cupboard with plasterboard, put up shelves, lay a hardboard floor and paint the whole thing white (another metaphor?). Consequently it was inevittable that I would have to do a couple of runs to the recycling centre to get rid of all the crap I had hidden in the black hole, plus a trip each to B&Q and Homebase to buy some storage boxes so I can start hoarding more crap! Not content with all that I have whiled away a few more hours changing my energy suppliers, renewing my car and house insurance, downloading OS-X Mountain Lion and hanging around facebook. I think I've now run out of totally tedious and pointless activities so after finishing this blog piece (yet another displacement activity) I am just going to have to knuckle down and start writing.
I'll report back and let you know how it goes.
