It must be something in the wind, but this week all I’ve really had on my mind is reorganising my things on my shelves and in storage, and getting rid of anything that I don’t need.There’s not much I hate more than clutter.
So, for the past few days, I’ve been mentally preparing myself for today, Saturday, my cleaning day.
Turns out the rest of my family must have had the same idea, without any of us really meaning it. As I arrived home from work at 11am to start the process, I found my dad in the garden cleaning up leaves and trimming hedges, and my mum on her way out to Bunnings to buy some new paint for the front fence.
I don’t know what it is that brings these sorts of events out in people? Is it the leaves that have fallen from the deciduous trees that are making us feel like our lives are cluttered and cramped, and subconsciously this makes us want to de-clutter our lives and our homes, and have them all looking nice again? This seems to be the only explanation that I can think of that seems relevant to me.
I feel like I have achieved so much in one day. Work. Reorganising and cleaning all my wardrobe and shelves. Vacuuming. Dyeing my hair. Whitening my teeth. Doing a facemask.
And now I have reached almost 6pm and I’ve got a few minutes to myself before I go to babysitting.
What a productive day!
