Don't feel guilty (easier said than done)

Had a good day creating. Made and sold a couple of new bracelets.

Its really difficult when the weather's nice...I want to be outside yet I need to be inside 'working'.
Saw a great place near Bristol over the weekend; made me dead jealous. Would love to have a little workshop somewhere like this:
Clevedon Craft Centre, it would make my work life so much easier.

If you are easily distracted, like me, staying focused on your business can be harder than doing the actual work of your business! It is very easy to procrastinate, especially when you are a WAHM (Work At Home Mum). There are always so many other things to do. I feel guilty about the pots not being done, or the washing waiting to go in the machine. It doesn't matter that if I was out at work they'd be there til I came home anyway!

I usually get up at 5.30am with Himself and we have a cuppa together before he tootles off to 'real work'! So, my goal ( I have been told that this is what I need to stay motivated!) is to do the house work in the hour and a half before I need to get Tillymint up for college! Sod the neighbours, those bottles and tins WILL be put out for recycling -they don't care about making a noise at 11 or 12 pm so why should I care about disturbing them at 6am- and I will not boot up the pc until 8.30!

Oh God, I can feel myself wavering already. I love having a peak in that 10 minutes before Himself comes downstairs, just to see what's been sold over night.

Anyway,apparently 'When you accomplish your goals, give yourself a little treat to remind yourself that you worked hard and achieved success!' and 'I should get out of the house at least once a day to avoid becoming isolated'. So, no more procrastinating (hang on a minute, I think the washing's finished...), I will make that necklace, but I need to just answer this MSN message first then,while I'm upstairs in the office I could make up the bed in the spare room....maybe I'll just treat myself now and save some time!!
