Are you prone to procrastination? It is my middle name! Generally fueled by fear of failure, I often procrastinate beyond the deadline to get the thing done. So it is with a ridiculous amount of pride that I now declare several years of procrastination over and my table-top ironing board’s new cover ready to use!
I reckon the ironing board must be nine years old – bought during my first ever trip to IKEA when our daughter started University. The original cover has been stained with unsightly brown scorch marks for many of those years. Even concern the marks might discolour some of my fabrics has not been enough incentive for me to overcome the fear I might not succeed in making a replacement!
I don’t know quite what got me to the point of overcoming the fear and the resulting procrastination but there was a moment earlier this week when I decided ‘enough was enough’.
