i hate forms

it's taken a supreme level of displacement activity but i have finally submitted my ucas form. in the process i've also achieved a spotlessly clean house, a re-organized bathroom cabinet, homemade carrot and coriander soup, 13 freshly baked rolls, 3/4 of yet another trashy crime/forensic story, some running, a lot of stretching and several photos of me doing said tasks.

as jane pointed out last night, if i do get accepted onto the course then there's going to be another 3 years of this. she doesn't think she can cope.

thanks for all the help amy, ali, vikki and mike, really, really appreciated.....and of course jane....

I'm sorry that i've been no help with the Ucas, running or the crime novel. Perhaps I could help with eating the cakes?

I'm trying to write a CV. I'm slowly loosing the will to keep breathing.

Well done! Hope to see you on the bike soon - AlexM, the new recuit, did well last night and managed not to take offence at any of Simon's comments!

Marmite on freshly baked bread, when you do displacement you do it with style. Glad the form of never-ending horror has been completed and may it lead to splendid new adventures.

What courses are you applying for?

My youngest daughter (of 4!) is going through the process at the moment. She has an interview next week and one conditional offer and one unconditional so she's happy!

baking v's form filling? No contest although I won't be fighting you for the marmite....bleaurgh!!

trio said...

Next time you have a form to fill in please move into my house for a few days!

kate said...

red- no cakes here, i repeat, there are no cakes hear. good luck with the CV i hate having to do stuff like that.

chris- don't replace me too quickly ;)

jumbly- fingers crossed for a move...

john- your daughter is obviously much more organized than me! i'm hoping to do nursing. hope her interview goes well.

emma- shame you don't like marmite. i live off oatcakes and marm on mountain marathons. slow release energy with salty goodness :)

trio- haha, at least i could pay you back with house work and baking! thanks again :)

Ooh, well done!

Sounds like you've achieved a level of procrastination that almost equals my own! Respect... *g*

ultra collie said...

swiss said...

nursing!!? no wonder you're employing all manner of avoidance behaviour! lol

kate said...

peewiglet- why thank you ;)

uc- the operative word is 'should'! i'm still struggling to have full/normal movement to fat leg, so i should be doing daily :(

swiss- yeh, i know ;) cheers though!

What's Ucas? Maybe it's a chance for me to get a clean house again, too? :-) Don't need any delicious looking scones though ...

kate said...

rb- glad you say marm too :)

groover- hoping to go back to school for a bit and do nurse training. if so, there will be many more cake and bread photos ;)
