Do you have new beginnings? I have them quite regularly because I am a great one for putting off until tomorrow what I should be doing today. This week became the week when I determined to get everything in order - and I have made a good start.
There were half a dozen telephone calls that needed making to organise things - I have kept putting it off. On monday I made a list, made the calls, crossed them off my list as I made them and had the whole lot organised within an hour. Why, I asked myself, had I been so silly and kept putting it off?
Then there were several drawers which were untidy and disorganised so that I could never find anything. That was my next job and I have tackled it this afternoon. Now my desk is super tidy with all envelopes, cards, writing paper, drawing pins, paper clips, sellotape and the like in their correct cubby hole.
My next job (tomorrow if I have time) is now to empty the 'jobs to do' basket by my computer and file everything in it properly away. I should have time tomorrow as I have to stay in all af ternoon
waiting for the Gas/Elecricity men coming to fit my Smart Meters. Getting all these jobs done in the same week is set to make me feel so much more organised.
Do you have to do this occasionally or are you one of those irritating people who never get things in a mess in the first place? My inner self fits into the latter category - but my outer self gets everything in a muddle when suddenly I haven't got time enough to file things away.
So wish me luck tomorrow with my final tidying up session.
