No knitting before coffee

Apparently my caffeine dependency has reached new depths this week. I thought I had a spare 5 minutes before I had to leave for work this morning and decided it would be nice to spend it knitting my Tubey since I finally managed to get to the colour change last night. I sat down, started knitting and promptly zoned out only to realise after a couple of minutes that I’d been knitting all the stitches, instead of the K3P1 rib that was supposed to be happening. I proceeded to rip out said incorrect stitches and re-knit at least some of them so that I could feel like I’d made some progress. I then decided that the late Douglas Adams’ comment that “Time is an illusion; lunchtime doubly so.” needs extending to add “and time that you think is spare before leaving for work triply so,” as I had now taken more than 5 minutes on my knitting and realised that I didn’t have my shoes, jacket, housekeys or mobile ready to go. Arriving at work, I realised that I hadn’t had my access badge ready either.

One coffee down and I’m not sure my brain’s doing any better yet!

Oh, and should any members of the Parliamentary Public Bill Committee currently discussing the new Pensions Bill happen to be reading this, please take note that while you had a nice recess last week leaving you refreshed and rejuvenated and able to get through huge amounts of work this week, some of us didn’t. If you could slow down your discussions a little so that I can keep up, it would be much appreciated.
