my life is a mess
my house is a mess
my shop is a mess
even my hair is a mess.........
so..... i got out of my lazy bed this morning and thought (to myself as everyone else in the house has stopped listening to the ramblings of a mad woman)
i have to put some order back in to my life
i shall start by explaining why i am behaving as i am.
i have never since the age of 15 had so much time not working - you see dear readers i have become a lazy shop keeper, to be honest i can hardly call myself a shopkeeper anymore as the wretched place is never open!
i wonder if it has just run it's course and i have just had enough (this is the option i keep repeating to myself so that i will eventually believe it)
or the fact that i am avoiding it like you would avoid the local loon, because then i do not have to imagine it not being part of my life anymore.
but what i do know is that my house (and hair) has suffered with me being at home more, i flit from one job to the next, never actually finishing anything and thus achieving nothing.
well no more
from today i shall have a routine
4a. paperwork for shop/website etc
5. tidy house
6. make beautiful things
and you lot - yes you
are the important part that will hold this list together - see number 4 - well that's the integeral part of my cunning plan
i figure that if i post every day it will encourage me to keep the house tidy, make things, do things that are interesting to other folk..... you know- generally be more normal.
i mean.... look at my poor Bella Boo sitting by the tower of apple boxes containing a tiny amount of my vintage china
even Bean looks as if she is about to pack her batman rucksack and hitch a ride back to Bristol
i swear it is only the comfort of the eiderdowns that is keeping her here at the moment.....
oh - that and the disgusting dreid fish skins the two girls have for breakfast each day (highly recommended to achieve a glossy coat)
i have open boxes in each room that i fill as and when i pass them, so every room in the house is a mess
the only corner that i refuse to touch is this one
it's nice to have something to look at that has some of my most treasured things on
can you see those dogs
remember them xx
and when it gets all to much i stop and smell the roses
here is the first one from our garden
see you all tomorrow
if you can stand the ramblings of a woman obsessed with packing
