10 habits

Look at the photo. See? I'm holding my hands up. I know i've got faults and here are a few annoying things I do.

10 ten bad habits and annoying things I do

1. Being a thinker not a do-er.

I have all these fabulous ideas of things to do, routines that will change my life but I never do them. I think, read and absorb all the tips and advice on the internet but never put it into action or if I do it's only half-heartedly. Part of the problem is never writing these things down or if I do it's on a scrappy bit of paper or my notebook that I always forget about.

2. Not making decisions.
Related to the above as I can never put in place what I want to do. Want to get some coloured pens? I stood in Wilko's forever looking at the choice, debating the merits of each, comparing price and what I would use each type for before purchasing a cheapie pack of felt-tips. Same when I want to buy a bar of chocolate. Oh and this one is just stupid. Standing in Poundworld debating which colour tumbler to buy for my bathroom. Imaging each colour in my bathroom and envisaging which would suit better and looking like a twat as I held one against the white shelving to recreate the white of my bathroom. I often walk off without buying anything because I simply cannot make a decision. I'm so frustrated by this, it often prevents me from doing stuff and progressing in life.

3. Leaving clothes in the bag and forgetting about until return date has passed.

Not making decisions means I often buy the items I can't decide between with the intention of deciding in the comfort of my own home and taking back the other. Or when I can't be bothered to try something on. But 99% of the time I get home, throw the bag in the corner and don't look at it again until those precious 28 days have passed and i'm unable to return.

4. Having too many tabs open.

Currently sat with 16 open, that's pretty good going. I reduced it last night from 30. I'm terrible with this, I just love to open tabs to look at later. I could bookmark sites instead you may say, but my bookmarks are in a terrible state and I don't find them that accessible really.

5. Being late.

I'm notorious for it. I can't make myself start the getting ready process until it's 10 minutes past the point where i'd be running late if I started now. Whether it be a catch-up meal with friends, visiting family or going to work I'm never ready ahead of time. Work I always manage to be just about on time. But the rest, when I know there is no real punishment for it, don't expect me to be there at the agreed time.

6. Ordering my lenses at the last second.

I wear two weekly contact lenses and order them online as and when I require them. But take the ones I'm wearing right now for example. They are the only pair I have and i've already been wearing them two weeks but only got round to ordering more yesterday. It normally ends with me ripping one and having to endure the pain or wearing my skanky glasses for a few days until more arrive.

7. Crisps.

My utter downfall. Buy a big bag, i'll scoff them in one sitting. Buy a multi-pack, i'll scoff them in one sitting too. I've worked out now that I can only buy single packets, even if it does work out more expensive!

8. Not cooking.

I spent seasons working as a chalet host cooking breaking, afternoon tea, children's tea and a 4 course adult dinner every day 6 days a week, yet now I find pasta a chore. The most I cook nowadays is some sort of chicken burger, potato and veg. I guess as it's not my job anymore and it's often just myself I cook for there's not much incentive to whip up fresh and different food everyday!

9. Having two sets of time management.

At work i'm super-efficient, wanting to to do everything and working hard. Home however is a little different. Time seems to disappear. It takes me an hour to watch a 30 minute programme. All morning to get out of bed, have brekkie and get ready for the day. Losing an hour when you haven't actually done anything, where does it go?

10. I couldn't think of a ten but i'm not all bad.

At work i'm actually hard-working, dedicated and efficient. It's just my home life i'm not so good in!

Can anyone relate to anyone of these or have any of your own to share?
