A tidying frenzy.


All of us are tidying today – the boys are mucking out their rooms (and believe me, I use that term advisedly), and N and I are tidying other parts of the house.  So far, he has gone through the cupboard under the stairs like a dose of salts, and we have got rid of stuff that has been untouched for 3 years.  I’ve made the desk back into a working space, rather than a tottering pile of papers and magazines (though I have to confess that a stack of unread magazines has gone through to the conservatory, to await my attention – if I haven’t read them in a couple more months time, I will recycle them).

This is definitely a Positive Thing – the state of the house was depressing me, but the effect of that is a sort of paralysis that stops me actually doing anything about it, until someone else gets me started.  I think I am overwhelmed by the size of the task, and I need someone to help me focus on one bit, so I am tackling one brick, not the whole wall.  Thank heaven for N who is the original duracell bunny, has lots of energy, and is very good at getting started on tasks, sweeping me onwards with him.

I've suffered from depression for many years (only recently diagnosed), and take antidepressants daily to keep me on a manageable level.
