Midweek Mindless Musings for a Wordless Wednesday!

Not exactly wordless- but my mundane thoughts are all over the place.
I'm pondering fleeting thoughts that are whizzing around my brain this very wet Wednesday- sitting watching the rain fall heavily- again- must be back to the usual Borneo climate- at least we had glorious weather whilst we were away last week...
I wonder how my visitors are surviving their jungle trip- hopefully they won't get wet- but there's no chance of not getting wet really- we live in the rain forest! I wonder if they'll see any pygmy elephants- I'll be very jealous if they do.
Got to go out shortly to book club-I haven't read the book- too long winded, too clever- and just a bit too Victorian - I know it might be a classic- but is it wrong to need to use a dictionary in order to understand what you are reading? I hope next months choice will be better- saying that- I have no idea what we decided...
I shouldn't really have that chocolate biscuit after my sandwich- but it did go down well...
20 reports to write before Tuesday... Why do I always leave it until the last minute- I could give lots of excuses -like having visitors- but I don't think the Boss would go along with that...perhaps if I say 20 reports quickly enough it will sound better... at least I don't have 30 plus to do like I did in the UK, so that's a blessing...maybe I'll start them tomorrow.
I really must catch up with reading everyone's blogs-mustn't get waylaid and go off on a tangent somewhere in cyber space...
What was that flying past the window- oh a swallow- catching flies- it's a wonder it isn't waterlogged.
Must have a look at my to do list-I need to keep adding things, perhaps I should add things I've already done- just to make me feel better...oh and I did say to myself I was going to bake- I wonder what I shall make- do I dare attempt scones again?...
So many things to do- don't know where to start...why does the Sound of Music score come into my head?. 'You start at the very beginning- a very good place to start'...
Oh gosh, look at the time...must dash...

  1. Oh gosh, my head is full! Hoping you get those reports written. Isn't it funny how our psyche comes up with something useful if we listen. And I have often felt the temptation to add "done: things to a list to make myself feel better too :). We are sodden over here too, but our wet is a lot colder, alas.

  2. My head feels like this pretty often too. I hope you have time to relax a bit soon. :)

    1. Yes, you would never believe I've just had a weeks holiday-Talk about hitting the ground running.. it will now be non stop for the nest few month i reckon:)

  3. Too many things to do, not enough time to do it all! A common problem, so know that you are not alone. If the book is not your thing, I see no point in punishing yourself by reading it all!! xx

    1. I like the way you think:) As it was no one at book club had read it, some had started it, but others hadn't even wanted to do that... Yet I'm sure it must be a good read for someone!- Perhaps just not me :)

  4. I would give up on the book too, it's the right thing to do if you're not enjoying it! Gorgeous photo.

  5. Oh gosh I can relate to this Amanda - life often gets in the way of things I want to do or read. I had to laugh because on my 'to do' list I've quite often added things that I've already done. It really does make me feel better!! As for blogging - I'm finally catching up on all my reading, well most of it anyway. :)

  6. I enjoyed reading your wandering train of thought. I struggled halfway through The Corrections before giving up and vowing never to waste precious time on books I didn't enjoy when there are so many others out there. Hope you get your reports written. x
