I like to think I’m quite good at multitasking. I mean, I can talking on the phone, send an e-mail, and drink a cup of tea I the same time.
What can I say, I’ve got me some mad skills…
All silliness aside though, I can do lots of things at once. I’m currently working on multiple writing projects, and I’ve even been known to play more than one video at once, (one on a handheld device and one on a console plugged into the TV). Yes, I can do lots of things at the same time, as long as I’m sitting down to do them.
When it comes to standing up, that’s a whole new ball game, because often the act of simply standing up to do anything is multitasking for me. I often have to use the seat on my walking frame Martha when I want to get anything of my handbag because I have to hold on to her, and look for what I want. Sometimes if I feel steady enough I can let go and use two hands, but then trying not to fall over saps so much of my concentration that looking in my bottomless-pit of a bag becomes really hard.
I can walk and eat a biscuit at the same time if I’m at home and don’t need my walker for support, but you’d never see me mooching around town eating a Greggs sausage roll, I’d need to sit down to do that really in order to feel comfortable.
