I finally got up to date with my filing at home today.  It was a rainy and miserable day, and I didn’t feel like taking the kids to an indoor play place, and I couldn’t spend much time online (due to said kids)… so I finally got down to it.

It took 4 hours… yip 4 hours… and that’s because the last time it was done was mid 2006!!! Absolutely shocking!

Then late this afternoon, I zipped into Woolies to get some pretty red storage boxes for slips and other random pieces of paper that needs to be kept.  So, the whole cupboard is looking good now too! It’s finally organised.

The next thing on my list is the bookcase. I desperately need to donate my old books to the local library again.  Think I’ll do that next weekend.

I’m promised myself that I won’t let that happen again.  I’ve let everything in the house slide since I was pregnant with Connor.  I just haven’t had the inclination to actually do anything about it all.  But now I have a bee in my bonnet and my life needs to get back into order… and it starts with my house and garden!

I already feel a whole lot better… it’s like a load has been lifted off my shoulders.  Weird that… it’s only a bit of filing for pete sake!
