First, turn the music up loud! (this is usually the first step for most activities)
Download photos from camera.
Piss yourself laughing at some of them! For example:
Wednesday night, getting ready for derby training…
the conversation goes something like this…
me: I don’t think I have any photos of myself in my derby gear, maybe you should take one for me
me: what on earth are you doing
R: taking photos
me: ok, I don’t think this is quite what I had in mind, but I guess it’ll do
… a few more photos later…
me: ok, there is no way some of these are ever going to see the light of day!
(the ones that won’t be uploaded include gems like me sneezing, me telling R she’s insane, etc etc) moral of the story – your teenager often has an interesting perspective on things!
Post a few other pics on Facebook
Look for your folder of music (songs, chords etc)
Fail to locate said folder due to house being in a complete state of chaos.
Decide to see what Google can find and print more
Chat to a friend for half an hour
Get sidetracked again by Facebook…
and then decide to write on the blog about it!
Hmm, got a bit over half an hour left, might trim my fingernails and tune that guitar!
Oh, and the difference between this and a ‘normal’ day is not feeling guilty about all the things you should have been doing instead!
