What to do with 30 minutes?

I had 30 minutes to spare the other day and couldn’t decide what to do with it. It’s not long enough to watch an entire movie, to read a novel, or to research the effects of high consumption of trans-fats on the human cardio-vascular system, but you have to admit, it’s a decent enough period to have all to yourself.

By the time I dithered over what to do, I only had about 10 minutes left, which was barely enough time to hang out a load of washing. So I came up with this list, so that the next time I’m fortunate enough to find half an hour somewhere, I’ll have some options to choose from:

- Do The Age crossword or Sudoku
- Get a bikini wax
- Read through a magazine and enter all the competitions
- Make - and drink - the perfect cup of coffee
- Give myself a manicure or a face mask
- Ring a girlfriend for a quick chat….of course anything under 2 hours qualifies as “quick”.
- File that pile of receipts on my desk and enter them in my cash book. I never said it had to be fun!

I’m open to any suggestions for additions to my list.
