"There always seems to be something more pressing than 'making time for myself'

I think this is true for many of us, regardless of the specific circumstances of our lives. I know it is true for me. Findingv the right balance, and maintaining that balance, can be a day to day struggle, that's for sure. I don't have any helpful pointers, just acknowledging that you aren't alone in facing this challenge.


Well you've found time to write a blog post, pay attention to changes in the garden, and to make soup. You've noticed the wonderful colours, taken photos and shared them with us. Shame we can't taste the soup, but I doesn't seem like a wasted day to me, Roz!
I sometimes have a go at writing "have done" lists rather than "to do" lists. That way I can at least make time to reflect on all the little things I have done but which I frequently underestimate. Being thankful that I was able to get up, dress myself and make my own breakfast this morning for example!
Better to plant five bulbs and enjoy it, than kill yourself planting five bags! Cilla x 😊

Cilla is exactly right - what a good comment! You do plenty of good things, Roz, for yourself and for others. I have the same time management problem ever since I retired, and Slip into Sloppy Structure. Just keeping up with the care of Autumn Cottage and its gardens would seem like a lot to me, so I am in awe of all you do!
