Bringing Chaos Into Order





Today I am playing truant and staying at home while Paul is doing some decorating and repair work at the flat.  I have to be here to await a courier delivery - new vertical blind slats for the patio windows.  

To amuse myself I have been unpacking Kat’s boxes of clothes.  Storage space is restricted to a small wardrobe and the four drawers under her king size bed (it doesn’t seem quite fair that Paul and I fight for space in our compact double bed while Kat luxuriates in her king size).  I can imagine her frantically turning the place upside down when she’s looking for an item of clothing so I have drawn up a clothes map for her and sent it to her ‘phone.  Kat has just replied,  That is so organised it makes my head explode.


Now I just need to colour co-ordinate the clothes in her wardrobe...

    1. I haven't read her book but I do know all about her. I'm a great fan of her ideas, I really don't like too much clutter.

    2. I saw how you fold the clothes and thought about her, i also like some of her ideas.

  4. I hope the RAF is well-organised - just like your clothes map. Does the RAF make Kat's head explode?

    1. Kat folds her clothes with absolute precision in her RAF room. (These clothes are never touched - just for show when they get inspected!) An exploding head is not a nice thought.

    1. I think I have some characteristics of Type A but conversely I can be very lazy, calm and laid back (but only after all the jobs/problems have been tackled!).

  6. You are scary organized, everyone needs a Mom like you.

    1. My girls hate being organised, I think they've rebelled against me.

  7. I have a friend who has colour co-ordinated her entire wardrobe. She never appears in public unless matching from head to toe - how I envy her. I often emerge into public life wearing the colours of the rainbow. I found a pair of trousers yesterday which I have not had on for two years. They were expensive and I love them but I just never came across them hanging in my wardrobe - I am really enjoying them today.

    1. Kat has got so many clothes I can't believe she knows what she's got in her wardrobe.

  8. My day wouldn't be complete without my wife shouting down from upstairs "Have you seen my xxxx"? Chaos rules this house (not that I like it).

    1. We have plenty of those moments. I like to tidy up but then I forget where I've put something.

  9. I am also meticulously organised and this has helped during my illness; family and friends were able to find things for me. However, I do get mocked for it!

    1. We do get mocked don't we? I think people are just jealous!

    2. I am chaotic in what I have, which is not much, but I never lose anything.

    3. I don't lose anything, I just forget where I put things!

    1. That sounds like a useful husband to me even if you do have to organise him.

  11. If Kat is wearing a uniform most of the time, will she ever bother to come back to collect - and wear - all those clothes you've stored so lovingly for her?

    1. I doubt it, although there's a lot of summery holiday stuff. She did actually give a huge amount away to the charity shops.
