So, this weekend I became aware of how I am just skirting around the edges of keeping our house clean and tidy.
This weekend I became aware of how often I push things to one side.
That as we walk around the house carrying one thing, or a child, that I consciously overlook what's under my nose.
Last Sunday night as I packed my bags for London I put the pair of shoes by the door I was intending to wear.
Monday morning, I changed my mind, And yes, at 0530 instead of putting my shoes away I left them by the door and went off to work.
Until this Sunday night, where I once again decided on the same pair of shoes for the Monday train to London. I nipped upstairs. There was only one shoe there. I searched high and low. No sign.
It's ok, I thought to myself I'll wear my green shoes (it's only until I get to London and put my 'heels' on).
Until I remembered for whatever reason they'd ended up in the sandpit over the summer and somehow been left there (past the point of no return and all).
Fortunately, after much searching I found the other shoe.
And whilst I spent my time searching I found lots of parts belonging to other pieces and pairs.
And realised, that we are far from the point of having a tidy house.
One for the New Year's Resolutions list?
