First of all it has taken me ages to write this piece, writes Maria Willis, and before you all fall off your chairs in mock amusement, it is unfortunately true! Why? Because I was merrily rejecting my own medicine and procrastinating away. It’s not that I didn’t want to write this or that it isn’t important, it’s just a prime example of finding other things to do further down the pecking order that take less thought and brain power. Sound familiar?
