I'm too busy/havent got time/ sooo tired

Heard any of the above lately?

3 common daily phrases trotted out by most folk that all mean the same thing...



nothing


No one is too busy :ohmy:

No one is has not got the time :ohmy:

No one is sooo tired :ohmy:

Now see if you can get through a week without saying any of the above.

I will give you one exception, new Mothers but that is all.

What a sweeping statement (well 3 of them actually). It begs the question "to do what?"

I'll pass on the first one because I don't have a particularly busy life but I can honestly say that if, for example, I have a hairdresser's appointment then I can quite honestly say (if asked 10 minutes before) that I haven't got time to go into Town and get something!

Likewise, I am often soooo tired that I can't stay awake to watch something on TV that I've been looking forward to!

Have I totally missed the point?

I was more like that when I was single and living in the Midlands, since moving to Sleepy South Devon I have slowed right down.......

it is a far slower pace of life down here, it used to irritate me when I was here for weekends, I was always muttering about there being "no sense of urgency"..........

now I am chilled out and laid back about things :laugh:


edit - I have also learnt to say no without feeling guilty and making up excuses!

Harsh - young man harsh!!

I am an old mother, with young and middle sized children, I have just started a new job that keeps me out of the house well over 60% of the working week, the rest of the time, I am cooking, pretending to tidy, really and truly ironing [you can't pretend cos things still look creased] and reading bedtime stories, walking dogs, feeding chickens, then I have school PTA stuff, a monthly church service to research & deliver, PCC minutes to take, type and distribute and sub edit a church magazine - I maybe sit down at about 9 ish and I can honestly say:

I am waaaaay tooo tired to do anything

I just do not have enough hours in the week to all I want

and

and I am toooo busy to even breathe

shall I be angry with your wsweeping statements? shall I be indignant? shall I be furious??

No cos I haven't time, I am too busy and way tooo tired to be any of those things!!

I always cook with wine, and sometimes I actually put it in the food.

Do a four and a six year old count me as a new mother :w00t:

I am guilty of saying these things, and really when I think about it, what is more important, doing the washing up or playing with the kids for half an hour.

The washing up will still be there, so I really should spend more time with the kids when they ask and not when I decide.

Well Isle! As a full time working single mum I am often too tired, too busy or don't have the time ... but not always and maybe sometimes I dont prioritise things properly!

... i only came online to visit Delia's site for tips on how to season a frying pan ...

Blimey - what a crock!

I work 11 hour shifts, I am the chief cook and bottle-washer ina retirement hotel, so its a bloody hectic day from start to finish.

How dare anyone tell me i cannot cry off of doing something cos I do not have the time or am too tired!!

It is better to state that you cannot do something, for whatever reason, than say yes/maybe etc and then not get round to it and let someone down.

Better they know where they stand. :thumbsup:

Ironing, I have two girls 3 and 8 and we dont own an iron. They dont look wrinkly and creased but we never iron, why would you?
