>One of the jobs on my to do list yesterday was to tidy my desk at work. I really cannot stand working in a mess and people often think I’m doing nothing because my desk space is so clear. Piles of magazines had accumulated, as well as piles of paperwork – I don’t use trays because they just pile up too. If I keep it to the desk top, the theory is I’ll put it away before I get fed up of it. But I got fed up of it and it was blocking me. So the first job I did was tidy my desk.
Now I want to tidy my office. I have boxes of magazines all over the floor and on my meeting table. If I want a proper meeting at the moment in my office, we do it at my desk, because clearing the table will be too much of an operation. I think I’ll do the office a bit at a time, for example, take the used printer cartridge to the recycling skip next time I go out – it’s only been on the table for the entire year so far.
Mess blocks me. Clutter blocks me. That cramped diary blocked me. Now my feng shui is good and getting better again.
I got through my edits (hurray!), but I suspect there may be a few more as the designers progress through the project (boo!). Lots of pages are complete, though, and they look brilliant. I can hardly wait to see some more, and it was a nice big tick on the to do list.
The weather was warm at the start of the week, too warm but okay because we could get out of it. As the week progressed, it got cooler, but now it’s clammy. I’ve been smelling rain every morning but it hasn’t come, so now I’m hoping we have a storm brewing along with the clouds that have tumbled in. If we get a storm, I won’t feel so bad about not going walking on Sunday.
Tonight I’m off out to a gig for the first time in AGES. I’m at my member club to see 2 of my favourite bands that feature 2 of my nicest friends, who happen to be identical twins but each plays in a different band. I have other good friends in the bands too, so tonight is going to be a real treat. Tomorrow it’s chores, chores, chores, then the pictures on Sunday morning.
