End of visit

My parents have gone back north. To my embarrassment they have seen potential for the reorganization of my flat that was well beyond my powers of perception. Every time I try to tidy the flat I become beset by problems of classification; paper remains on the floor in room A because if I file it I will also have to face the problem of the overflowing box file in room B, which must wait its turn with the rest of the contents of the room. Next time I think I'll just move between rooms all the time; I can't pretend the issues are discrete any more, and I might lose some weight in the process.

At least I'm not up marking an essay tonight; this is pure insomnia. My student's computer has crashed, leaving computing services to extract her notes from her hard drive; I'll leave the firm reminders about backups to them for now, and have happily rescheduled the tutorial to Monday. Tomorrow I might start work on that book chapter I've been putting off for a couple of months, now that the TGW launches are out of the way.

I see these same things. I can close my eyes and see a vision of the fluffyflat in its state of raw carnage, and then another of the fluffyflat as could be.

I actually three out some clothes on Tuesday, though. One jacket had a shopping list in the pocket dating back to when we lived together. There was indeed a lot to get through.

Good little man! *pat pat patronise* No thinking your work is now done and letting the junk build up for another five years, now.

I am currently also trying to reorganise my space and throw out things. The more you throw out, the easier it becomes to be ruthless. I still find it hard to motivate myself to do the 'one small unit of tidying up everyday, come what may', though. I haven't really done much for about a week now. *looks slightly defeated*

But hey! *determined now* Definitely gonna do a little sorting when I get home tonight.

*hugs*

I'm just trying to keep things tidy at the moment. There is certainly more sorting to be done but it needs time - I will need to take a few days off to do it, essentially.
