It is chaos living in my house, I forget things, I can never find things, I can never decide on anything and I change my mind constantly….
It wasn’t always like this… well okay then it probably was but as the number of children has risen and my number of hours asleep diminished the time has finally come (as pointed out by my health visitor*) that I could really do with a little bit of routine in my days.
*once I’d finished being annoyed with her and thought about what she said I can’t help but agree…
The only routine thing in this house is the routine fact that there is none. Everything is done on a whim, from bedtimes to mealtimes to well everything. I think of myself as far too creative and free-spirited to be able to do routine but consequently I have no time to be creative or free-spirited as lack of routine means every aspect of my home life is hard work and utterly muddled!
So over the next few weeks I’m going to make positive changes to make things better and to create time. It starts with a complete overhaul of the house, a massive clear-out, a move around and thorough organisation of belongings and time. Yes. Martha Stewart is my new best friend.
