Anyone else get so bored they resort to working in their free time?

I live alone and today the weather is pants, the TV is just as bad so I actually made the decision to sit at my desk and do some work….I must have lost the plot lol

      I’ve never ever been that bored, if I was I think I’d rather punch myself in the face or kick myself in the goolies rather than doing some work.

      Too many other deadlines occupying my free time to bother with the 9-5 stuff! I have worked on weekends over the last year, but only when we were really up against it, not through choice!

      Silly question but what’s free time? Is it a new thing? I’m not well versed in current trends. 🤣

      Nooooo no way NEVER … dear God man.. are you crazy… 🤣
      I have a garden full of leaves to rake next time you get bored 🤣
      Or a little bit of painting?….
      Oh and the sealant around the bath needs replacing …
      And the kitchen sink sealant…

      Mates rates? 🤣

      Yep, virtually every week! In principle I have Friday off, but I’ve run two workshops this month, taught 2 courses
      and this weekend I’m attending a training course. So I’ve had 1 weekend off this month..
      I know, I need to either get a life, a dog or a partner 🤣🌸

      I’ve never been bored away from work with more than enough interesting pastimes to occupy my time. I’d like to say I’m a lady of leisure but life has its responsibilities even now.

        I wasnt really bored away from work, I was just bored ( live alone, no social circle, kids doing their own thing)

      Sounds like my daughter and her current circumstances.

      I’ve spent time on my own over the years and you’re right, nobody about can be rather soul destroying. That’s partially why I always have current projects on the go and plenty for back-up. During a very difficult time I painted bottles every day to keep sane. These days it would be called mindfulness. The thing is if your brain is fully occupied and concentrating it’s not going down a rabbit hole. Work was once my salvation as well.

      I hope you find something that is all consuming for a while. Mine was doing my family tree and helping other family tree researchers. Many happy hours spent online searching, adding information and finding distant relatives to chat with.

      I hope you find something that will give you joy. 💐 Excuse the flowers but it’s a way a sending a positive message.
