Boredom

I don’t understand it. Boredom. I’m sure that when I was little I was like every child saying that ‘I’m borrrrrrrreddddddd Mummmmmyyyyyyyyy’.


But not now, not for as long as I can remember.

I think it comes from the fact that I like my own company. I like myself. Is that weird?


As myself & Mr D have no children, I have in the past been asked, ‘what will you do when you’re older..what about when one of you dies..then one of you will be left all on your own’ Well that is not a thought that terrifies me. There is always something to do. To read. To watch. To learn.


I see it on Face Book. People telling their friends through their status that ‘soandso is borrrrrred’ I feel like shouting at them GO and DO Something!

If I’m not doing anything, then I can sit and daydream for hours. Maybe that’s a bad thing, but I don’t feel bad for doing it.


I always think, people who are bored…they have no imagination. Or no books.


(They definately don't blog)

  1. There are not enough hours in one day for me to do everything I want to do... so there's DEFINITELY not enough time to get bored!

  3. For me if worse comes to worse I blog! Or read! Or go for a drive or walk. It's easy to find things to do.

  5. this rings so true to me. i love to be on the go, seeing new places, learning new things. it tends to be independent people who are not bored because they don't depend on someone else for entertainment. and no, you're not weird. being alone is lovely

  6. I totally know what you mean. I'm rarely bored because there is always so much to do. I mean, blogging, reading a good book, doing chores (haha, just kidding)...

    Here's to a great week! XO.

  10. COMPLETELY AGREE. I think only boring people get bored.

    I'm always amazed when someone tells me they're bored, do they have no hobbies? No friends?! And like you said, no books? Hahaha.

    It makes no sense to me!

  11. I really like your post Claire, I get what you're saying...I like my own company too and you're right, there's always something to do even if it is just burying your nose in a book...or a blog for that matter!
    Thanks for following me x

  12. I'm with you here; for me I think it has a lot to do with being an only child - I know how to entertain myself, or I know how to sit quietly and just 'be'. Sometimes I get bored of what I'm doing (ie work!), but when /if that happens, I get up and walk away from it (I'm lucky enough to work flexi-time and from home). Since having my son too, there's little enough time to do all that I want to do so there's definitely no time to be bored.
    And, as one of your other commenters said, I've always agreed with the saying 'Only boring people get bored'

  13. I completely agree!! It often feels like I'm always on the go and my days are so scheduled that I welcome any down time :) I could spend hours with my thoughts, reading, and watching movies.

  15. I love this post!! I completely agree with you! I actually get frustrated at times because there are so many things that I want to do and just can't seem to squeeze them all in! My mom and I have often talked about how we just don't understand how someone can be bored...I know I get so much of my creativity and such from her so it has always been good to know that she understands this and feels the same. Looks like many of us can relate! :)

    Hugs to you...been thinking of you, girlie!!

  17. If I have no appointments to be at, no errands to run, no shopping to be done.. when all is calm, I go to our fantastic library. And borrow too many books :)
