Today is Sunday, and I have spent the day doing something that I have put off for the last few weeks. *ahem*, OK. For the last few months…putting away all the clean clothes that sit in basket in the middle of our living area. I think it is appropriate that they are in the middle of the living area, because it makes it so much more convenient to get pour clothes each morning. Friends talk about their ‘floordrobe’. Well, this is our ‘basket-drobe’, though floordrobe sounds better!
It feels so great to have this all done. For a moment I am one of those people. You know the people. The ones that are organised with a clean house and they never have to apologise for it. Are you one of those people? But sadly it is short lived. I have a load of washing in the dryer, and another in the washing machine…
Getting these clothes put away led me to cleaning out my wardrobe, which made me learn a few things about myself.
- I have many pairs of pyjamas. None of which I actually bought for myself. They have all been gifts. No more pj’s please. And I still wear an old t-shirt to bed!
- I must have the largest collection of Diesel jeans known to man (& woman). I have bought all these online because Diesel jeans from a retailer are ridiculously expensive. Of the approx. 7 pairs of Diesel jeans, I would say that 1 pair fits me. And they are the ones I wear on a daily basis.
- The collection of Diesel jeans is followed closely by my collection of white t-shirts. And yes, every single one has a stain that renders it useless for wearing in public.
- I have also ended up with a big pile of clothes to go to the Salvos. Most of those came from the Salvos to begin with, and the rest were hand my downs from my sister. I like to reduce, reuse and recycle!
After weeks of struggling every morning to find clothes to wear to work, I was being reduced to wearing the same thing every day. I now know that I have heaps of clothes, and I actually know where they all are.
My fear is that in the morning I still won’t be able to work out what to wear to work, because I have too much choice!
What are you doing with your Sunday?
….Come on summer, start already…
