There is an unwritten rule.
It goes a bit like this, work expands to fill the time available to do it in.
If you are busy, little jobs are just that, little jobs.
BUT...when you have all day to do them in..the expand..like cinder toffee does when being made..to fill every spare moment.
That is what happened today...Shopping at Asda..normally..an hour tops..am sure it took almost 2!
Then later on something else took much longer. Only trouble is...the days don't stretch to accommodate these stretchy job times.
Am off to bed soon...
