Organisation. I love it and yet I can't seem to do it. When we first moved here almost two years ago I wanted the perfect organised home where "Everything has a home" as my nan used to say. However with a three month old baby at the time, a raging three year old and packing my life into boxes it didn't pan out that way. Life got in the way of my organisational skills and boy I was pissed.
Two years later my house is no more organised than when I had that three month old and three year old. If anything it has become worse with things being haphazardly hidden and books piled on top of books just to make them fit. This is partially down to lack of storage space but is mostly down to my attitude. I just don't put things back and it's a trait that I have had as long as I can remember. I can't keep things tidy however much I would like to be that woman with those traits. However, I do love looking at organisation tips and spend many hours on Pinterest and I Heart Organizing so I feel like it's time for an A/W resolution. Who wants to follow the crowd and wait until January, anyway?
For the month of December I will be in 'Domestic Goddess Mode' hereon out known as DGM. I will write myself small tasks every day and I will do them. If I don't do them one day I still have to complete them the next. I will not buy anything new for storage purposes but I will repurpose what I have, customise it and/or buy from charity shops. I will have a clean, tidy and organised home by January 1st when I can really get down to the nitty gritty personality faults I'd like to change. 2013 is the year if nothing more so than the fact I have been bombarded with the end of the world theories December brings. I have survived quite a few 'end of the world' days plus a few raptures for the religious among us so I'm pretty confident that if I survive this, I owe the world some serious stuff.
