The first rule is that I have to wear comfortable clothes but I cannot be warm. I’ll move around a lot more if I am cold and will hopefully get more done. I have to keep reminding myself that the idea is to clean and de-clutter, not get caught up in looking at everything too closely. I have two liquid paper pens, two liquid paper dispensers and one refill for a liquid paper dispenser. I can’t even remember the last time I used liquid paper!
Every now and then as a reward, I am allowed to sit in front of the heater for a few minutes and I blast it on it’s highest settings. I manage to find lots of reasons to take breaks: cigarettes, washing my hands, washing my hands so I can have a cigarette, washing my hands so I can have a drink of water and blogging too apparently.
It’s just after midday and I have been up since 6:00am. I didn’t sleep very well last night and it was freezing when I woke up but my brain wouldn’t let me go back to sleep or even doze so I got up and decided it would be a good day to clean.
I’ve been cleaning for a few hours but my desk doesn’t look any different. I’ve pulled so many things out of drawers and everything is everywhere. Maybe I spent too much time testing out old pens and organising my stickers.
I wish I could jump a few hours into the future when hopefully I will have a desk surface again and wont be surrounded by paper/ribbon/miscellaneous crap!
