Guilt, guilt, guilt.

Life is full on at the moment.
I don't think I have sat down today. Or been to the loo. Must have. But can't remember. My poor bladder.
Each hour is chockablock with Things I Need To Do Right Now.
So I do those.
And then there are the things I needed to do Yesterday.
So I do those.
Then the things that I REALLY needed to do last month. So I do those.
Then the things that I REALLY SHOULD HAVE done last year. So bugger those.
And then there are the things I need to do Right Now but can't be bloody arsed.
And then a friend rings.
And I feel guilty as it's about a year since I last rang them.
And then I remember all those friends I haven't rung for about a decade.
And feel worse.
Then I remember that I haven't rung my sister, or brothers, or sister in laws or brother in laws. Or nephews, or nieces. Or godsons. Or goddaughters.
And then I feel REALLY guilty. And then...?
And then I remember all the things I have forgotten to do.
And then I forget all the things I remembered to do.
And then...?
I give up.
And Blog.
And then I realise I have been a bloody useless Blogger as haven't visited, commented or just hopped about from blog to blog enough. Have Neglected the Blogosphere. Attempt occasionally to land, still running, on a blog or two, and leave breathy comment before buggering off again.
Guilt too in Blogland.
Bum it.
Guilt everywhere.
Oh, well. Forgive me for not visiting. Forgive me if I did and left comment about Swedish Hostess Trolleys by mistake. Brain not attached to rest of body at the moment. Is miracle that have got this far in post.
Uh-oh, children demanding bed-time kisses.
Better go.
But WILL be back to normal, just as soon as I can.
In the meantime, I hope I get to see some of you at Cybermummy on 3rd July.
London City Mum, we shall paint the town red! Yippee!! Hooray!! Whoopideedoodah!!
Or have a nice cup of tea and a slice of cake.
Kisses all.
I'll be back.

God you're lucky,you can control your bladder?

London City Mum said...

Woo hoo - cannot wait!

Sod the guilt. Life's too short.


Ladybird World Mother said...

Gg - I know. Bladder control is fab. Its just the life control that's a bit iffy.
LCM - woo hoo, indeed!! And I will indeed sod the guilt. As it were. xxx

Mwa said...

Life control is highly overrated. It will happen to you. Best to let it.

Corey Schwartz said...

Oh, gosh. I can totally relate. My head is spinning and wont' stop until camp begins and I have some time off from my two demanding little bosses.

You wouldn't want to be one of those uber organised women really now would you!

Troy said...

Gosh, that blog posting was almost as complicated as the Doctor Who episode I've just watched!

And slightly more references to TIME.

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Yes...completely with you on guilt front! :)

Working Mum said...

Forgiven. I've been incredibly busy, too. Now putting everything off "until I break up for Summer"!

Reasons said...

Yes it's the usual coming up to the end of term madness, so much going on and soooo little time to do.

Write lists. But don't lose them like I do ;-)

Mother Hen said...

Some days, weeks, months are just plain crazy and we all get that.

Breath..... There, now go to the loo!

I sometimes wish that my family, all of them and friends, read my blog so then I wouldn't have to call or write to them. They would know what the chicks and I were up to by following me. But then I couldn't write about them when they piss me Off!

Vodka Mom said...

you're forgiven.

ONLY if you forgive me, as well.

Clippy Mat said...

It's an absolute disgrace. You should be thoroughly ashamed of yourself!! There's no excuse for not being able to do it all. What kind of a woman are you?

There now.
There's nothing like a bit of pistol whipping to accompany guilt. I always feel.
Better yet?
don't forget to pee.
It clears the brain. :-)

Ladybird World Mother said...

Oh, how lovely... NICE comments from you all... not that I would expect anything less from you wonderful people and all.
Hectic still, but you will be glad to hear that have gone to the loo today. Hooray!! xxx

Sir Bruin said...

I don't often do advice, but here goes:
Do what you can and leave the rest.
Don't waste energy on guilt over things that you can't change.

Oh, and I'm willing to bet that nobody died as a result of any of those things that you didn't do - so, it's all good!

Ladybird World Mother said...

Sir B - Thanks for sound advice. You would think that by my age I would know such things. Sometimes we just need to be bloomin told. xx

diney said...

diney said...

Ladybird World Mother said...

Diney - yes, it was me
Yes it was me
Yes, it was me
Yes, it was me.
But at least have remembered to answer EACH of your comments! Hooray!!

Trish @ Mum's Gone to... said...

I often see you comment on 'not waving' blog so thought you must be a good sort. You are! Will come again then.
If it makes you feel better, I'm sitting drinking coffee, eating brownies and arsing about on the computer while my toilets are crying out to be bleached.

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

Good to see you whenever and wherever you can make it LWM. I've been a bit out of touch with blog world too lately and I'm retired so haven't any real excuse! A x

Sod the lists. I make much better decisions after a large glass of wine...

London City Mum said...

And an award for you at mine dearest girl xx


imbeingheldhostage said...

I can't tell you how relieved I was to read this. Whew, I'm not alone in the universe!!
Don't feel guilty about the blogosphere, it will still be in the same place you left it :-)

Now go sit down and have a cup of tea and put your family on a conference call.

Previously (Very) Lost in France said...

I seem to have little control over either my bladder or my life! Is there any hope? Thanks for dropping by my blog and I'm returning the compliment. Shall be following you untidy adventures with interest!

This sounds like a 3am in the morning conversation you have with yourself in your head. -HMx
