Don’t you just love ‘to do’ lists?
I think I love them almost as much as timetables.
And coming from a teacher, that’s praise indeed!
I remember when I was younger I was kind of disorganised.
OK, I was a lot disorganised.
At boarding school I got so many demerits for being scruffy, slapdash or scatterbrained that I spent about three solid years in detention. I was forever sans a sock or had misplaced my music, or totally forgot *something* and wound up getting told off.
And then in sixth form I continued the trend, especially struggling to make it to the bus on time for school each morning. It used to pass by our house, turn at a roundabout (where the bus stop was), then pass by once more. Many was the time that I went zooming out of the door as it passed by the first time, toast in hand and hair all over the place, all ready for a flag down after the loop. Heh.
I got more organised though, and it’s a skill I’m pretty proud of. I think at work I’m organised enough to keep us in line (the work and social schedules of 18 boys at a prep school can be pretty full on!), and I dearly like knowing what’s what as I go about my day. I’m getting ever more organised at home too, and love nothing more than time to declutter and nest a little bit (hello, Easter holiday!).
How organised are you?
