I think I have developed some annoying habits. I'm not sure how it happened but I think it has something to do with living on my own for a while!
This morning being the domestic goddess that each one of us occasionally becomes and I was hanging my washing out. Before I got to the line I stood at the washing machine and sorted the washing into smalls which go in the basket first as they are the last to be hung up, t shirts and shirts which are next in the basket and each one is turned the correct way, and finally pants again put in the correct way. I realised that this was something that I was doing and stopped myself from dividing the shirts and pants into the long versus short varieties. I am scared of what this might mean.
I did not stop myself from folding the washing so that the part that touches the line was at the top and was the only part that I needed to touch.
I also have noticed that I have a particular way of folding sheets (including fitted ones which have crisp folds in them), towels, tshirts, jumpers, pants etc. Each thing that I have mentionned find themselves in a particular space on the shelf or in the drawer. I get frustrated when I have noticed that I was too tired to do it properly and have to redo it!
Thinking about this further I realise that this same desire for neatness I have a tidy desk and things are organised in my filing cabinet both at home and at work.
BUT I have found a loop hole. I dont keep things 'just so' in my everyday living. There is mess. I dont keep totally on top the correction that comes in - it is done within the week but not the same day!
These habits that I am developing are able to be controlled......I just have to put my mind to it.
