Cross training (of sorts)

aka The Evil Clutter Pixie

I have spent the last two days sorting, tidying and hoovering.  Dull doesn’t cover it.  I have been up and down the loft ladder more times than I can count and been up and down the stairs more times than that.  I’m calling it cross training.

I have also made the acquaintance of the evil clutter pixie.  The pixie assigned to me has a fondness for:

  • carrier bags – two large bin liners full of them and counting
  • stationery – five archive boxes of assorted tat
  • unopened post – some of it going back to the early nineties
  • gadgets – mostly that promised instant tidyness
  • storage box lids – many
  • odd socks – fifteen
  • toiletries – how many bottles of sunscreen does one person need?
  • bubble wrap and padded envelopes – two archive boxes
  • long hair (to clog up the hoover) – far, far too much!

I have bruises on my bruises and papercuts on my papercuts.  So I’m calling it a day and pouring myself a glass (or so) of Chianti.

Thank you to abradysis for keeping me sane.

    Blimey that’s a lot of stuff – have you discovered a hidden room??

  4. I think I’ve got one of those pixies !
    Unopened post… I just figure if it stays in the envelope it is far more tidy and contained. Don’t you think?

    I need to do a de-clutter too. Well done and I think it can certainly be counted as cross training.

    can’t believe you have unopened post… being the eternal optimist i always imagine any envelope might have a cheque in it!
