Then things started piling up. And up.
Soon the office looked like this:
Actually, to be honest those photos were taken when I put ‘office cleanup’ at the top of the challenge list. Then I went on to clean up the workshop, got tired, ran out of time, got abducted by aliens… I just stopped. Cleaning and organising that is. I didn’t stop piling stuff in the office.
Every time I came across something I wanted out of the way , I’d put it in the office.
Side Note: Have you ever felt that cleaning is just another word for ‘moving things’? Have you ever considered that you will never have the entire house tidy at the same time cause in order to clean one area, you mess up another with things that don’t belong ‘here’ and there’s no ‘place’ to put them… yet… till you create one for them when you clean the next room.
The mess was a whole lot worse than in the pics, but by not sharing those pics I can keep a little dignity… (ha)
Here it is now. After I put everything in the workshop to sort and find a place for later.
Next week I’ll be cleaning the workshop again.
I even put initials on the filing cabinets. One for me and one for Wayne, in case Z and W wasn’t obvious.
There are still a few things to do, get rid of the old desktop computer for instance, but I love the new clean office. So much in fact that I don’t think I’ll ever use it again.
