Here I am doing three thing at once. Watching the news; it’s about all I watch on a week day. Sitting next to the timer as dinner is cooking and I’m waiting for it to ding a ling so I can go and serve it up and knitting a scarf as a Christmas present. The fluffy heap snuggled in next to me is Bobby Dazzler, so I suppose, I’m doing four things at once, one being snuggling my very small dog.
I don’t have a lot of spare time so when I get 15 minutes sit down time, I always knit at the same time. I go to bed quite early and sometimes listen to a programme on Radio 4. Tonight, I will be in bed by 8.30 as there is a radio documentary by Chris Bowlby which examines the concept of the ‘deserving poor’. I’ll knit whilst I listen and expand my vocabulary to Radio 4 standard.
I usually do two or more things at once. I travel to work by train with my laptop open, preparing power points for my lessons, or analysing progress spreadsheets in readiness for my Faculty Review. Time is a precious resource and I’m not going to waste it.
