Procrastination at it’s finest

I should be cleaning my bedroom. You have no idea how badly I need to clean my room. I would take a picture to prove how bad a state my bedroom is currently in but I am too ashamed to let you see it. Just imagine boxes everywhere, then put a pile of half folded clothing on top of those boxes, two boxed up wardrobe doors, two bags still not unpacked from my recent last minute holiday and you will have an idea of how bad things are.

In my defence I have just given away one of the two free standing wardrobes I own(ed) and a blanket box to make room for my new fitted wardrobe that I have almost finished building. So I am not a complete slob. However, I do have charity peeps coming tomorrow to take the other wardrobe and a chest of drawers and some other bits coming to my house tomorrow morning so I should be cleaning and tidying like a loon.

So instead I am writing a blog post.

I have done some bits this morning, but I am being horrendously faffy. I have shredded some documents and gone through a big box of toiletries, which contains about 15 bottles of body cream, 9 half empty shampoo bottles (yet no conditioner) and makeup which I was given as a child and never use but can’t bring myself to throw out.

I have emptied the box onto the beds and made different piles but that’s about all I have managed.

A while ago I talked about the Marie Kondo folding and decluttering I was doing, and the fact I have too much stuff and this need to declutter is all a continuation of that. I have a tendency of bulk buying items to save money, which I then forget about and so never use, and that along with the house still not being finished so many things still not having a place to live, has me feeling a little like I am living with the walls closing in around me. So today Mum and I agreed that I would have the day at mine for me to sort my house (look at me finally finding me time) and instead I am writing a blog post. Oops.

  1. It’s nice to see you again. I’ve just been catching up on the posts I’ve missed.

    Don’t be hard on yourself. Sometimes we all need time just to ‘be’. You haven’t had much time to yourself, so maybe doing what you want is more important than doing ‘something useful’.

    Look after yourself.

    • Hey hey, lovely to see you again. I do hope you and yours are well? I am really struggling on feeling less guilty and doing what I want to do rather than what I feel what I have to do. It’s a work in progress, but I am getting there.

    • Can you believe I am still getting there? There are spots of cleanness, but an awful lot of clutter. I just want to throw so much stuff out, but then I feel guilty about getting rid. Can’t afford to buy anything new at the moment, so really feel bad giving away stuff I have only worn once or twice. Also, there are lots of little bits that need moving into other rooms, or tools from putting up the wardrobe that need moving into the garden shed but as I am only getting home late/it has been raining a lot I haven’t gotten around to moving them yet. Feel like I need a full day so I can get properly on with things, grabbing a few hours here and there isn’t really working.
