Have you ever noticed that in order to organise a room, a huge amount of chaos needs to be created?

Chaos is an inevitable part of organising. Drawers need to be turned inside out, wardrobes need to be emptied, furniture needs to be moved, bags need to be filled…

It is always exciting at the beginning. I am full of energy, full of ideas, full of intention… oh… the naivety of it all…
I am one of those people who don’t over-think it. I jump right in. I get on with it.

After a couple of hours I realise how much work there is to do – that’s what happens when you don’t over-think things… ignorance is bliss they say…  By the time I come to terms with all I have to do, it’s too late to back down – there is already one more room compromised, I am covered in paint and one of my children doesn’t have a bed to sleep on that night.

There is stuff in every available surface, spare beds become dumping grounds, spare-rooms become waiting lists for furniture and decorations to be re-allocated….  Chaos, chaos and more chaos… awaiting to be organised…

My latest project : re-decorate Chaotic Monkey’s bedroom.
Status : getting there

New project : Chaotic Monkey's Room

It has taken a little bit longer than planned due to tummy bugs, general tiredness (and a bit of laziness) and kids’ social events but my young monkey is once again sleeping in his bedroom and he is very happy with his new bed.

I am hoping to finish the room next weekend.

And then I will need to organise the spare room where I have been dumping all the bits and pieces. I am just hoping that I don’t decide to organise the spare room properly as that would involve disorganizing a different room in the process and I don’t think I have it in me to do that much organising in one month.

A girl needs to pace herself…
