I've been making bread at home recently. Bread is actually quite a good way of wasting time when you're working from home. The individual steps of the process are not hugely time-consuming, fifteen minutes or so each, and there are long gaps between them. This means that one can take a break to pound some dough or put things in the oven, and then get back to work.

Kneading dough also allows you to pretend that you are instead folding and squashing a particular person or software package that might have been irritating you. There's the additional bonus of ending up with bread, too. Have you seen the price of bread these days? Any decent loaf costs well over a quid, and you can be paying £1.30 for really rubbery Hovis granary stuff in corner shops. (I don't include sliced white in the "bread" category, it's confectionery.)

This is probably not an appropriate procrastination method if you don't work from home, unless you work in a bakery, where it probably isn't an effective procrastination method.
