OK it’s official it’s time I sorted out my art room AGAIN. I’ve just spent two days looking for a journal I’ve been working in. Well not two whole days because I’m out at work most of the time. But I’d get up in the morning and look for it, come home from work and look for it, move piles of stuff around and look for it, and it couldn’t be found anywhere. It was driving me NUTS. I knew it was here (somewhere) and I also knew that if I was tidier I would stand more chance of knowing where things are. Of course, once I stopped looking I found it and just by moving something on my desk and there it was!
So it’s on my To Do list now – Sort out Room. Every now and again I have a go at it and if I make a concerted effort I do make some progress, but it is so difficult to stay focused on tidying up when I find so many interesting things. You see I collect things, things I really don’t need, but things that ‘might come in useful’. My room is full of ‘stuff’ – art stuff, local history stuff, and general life stuff. To me it’s all fascinating and interesting and I have plans for using it in the future, but I will admit it would be better if there was some kind of order to it. My obsessively tidy husband hates having to come into my room, he just can’t cope with the disorder and chaos!
I either need therapy or an assistant, I’m not sure which.
