Thanks ladies

My tidy inner self

On the inside I am a perfectionist, very ordered, neat and tidy.
This might come as a surprise to a casual observer, after all my house is nearly always messy, I often spend needless hours looking for something that I neglected to put away in its place and my newly organised studio turned into a disaster area so quickly that I didn't even have time to take photos of the perfection.
I give so much time to reading books on de-cluttering and wandering around my local storage shop looking for solutions and I give due attention to the process of de-cluttering. I guess I should be given full points for effort but the results are mostly hard to see.

I was very impressed with this made to measure pin cushion (not mine of course, I mostly keep my pins on the floor), well done Josh.
(Lorraine are you impressed).
