  • How organised are you?...

    I'm am completely and utterly the opposite - going to a friends house for coffee this morning (who also has 3 children similar ages to mine) brought it home to me. Her house is completely immaculate and she is always immaculate (I would hate her but she's just too nice!).
    I'm always moaning that I don't get enough time to myself because of the kids and the hours my o/h works etc etc, but really I'm just disorganised!
    How do you professional crafters get your work done, yet stay on top of things?!..

    a tidy house is the sign of a boring life so they say. My house has got a bit less tidy since having Rhiannon. baby toys taking over!!!

        Organised chaos here there are 5 of us (3 of whom are under 4) so we have a lot of stuff between us, I guess you could describe my house as homely and loved in or if being critical then cluttered is probably fairy accurate too

        I kind of like it like that, the clutter hides the dust

              house is never tidy, have fits of clearing craft stuff away only for it to reappear all over the house!!! My boys are 10 months and 3 1/2 and I work four days a week so never as I would like it but everyone is relatively happy and it can only get so messy!
              I would go insane if I actually tried to live keep up with stuff in order to live in the beautiful clutter free environment we had before the kids so I have stopped trying to, do enough to keep it cleanish and enjoy the free time little as it is!!

                    I would love to be tidy, but mess just seems to happen in our house nobody puts anything away and I have stopped getting too stressed about after I heard myself bellowing " Am I the only one who puts anything away in this house, I'm fed up of picking up after you lot !" and realised that I repeated, word for word, exactly the phrase my mother used to use 30 years ago and decided as long as the house was relatively clean the mess was harmless.

                    My sister's house is absolutely immaculate and I asked her what the secret of her housekeeping success was and she told me ............two hours housework a day !!!! I think I would rather be a crummy mummy thankyou.

                      Much as I would love a tidy house and although I do consider myself organised, it's a TIP! My husband drops things where he uses them, as does my daughter. I could run myself ragged picking up after them but have far too much crafting to do!

                        I am not at all tidy.. I have to force myself to try and keep things neat.. but I am a saint compared to the O/h.. I tend to put his "cr*p" on the stairs ready for him to take up to his office (2nd floor) but it would sit there for weeks while he runs up and down stairs empty handed..

                        Every so often I get annoyed, so I either take it up for him and throw it all over his office floor.. or I just dump anything and everything in the bin..

                        He never takes the hint, just "moans" about the fact I didnt put his stuff away! talk about rhino hide!

                          I can be organised when it comes to planning things, organising other people and booking up fairs & making stock in advance, but in my personal life I'm terrible at keeping organised & tidy.

                          My 'filing cupboard' in the office has a shelf for my business, a shelf for OH's business, and a shelf for personal papers - guess which shelf has a landslide every time we open the doors

                          We tend to do house work in 'mad hours' where we'll rush about and get loads of things done in a restricted time frame (we'll set an alaram for 1 hour after we start) - that way you feel like you've acheived loads without it eating into 'your' time.
