It's been a strange old week!

First up I intended to post more often but it's been a strange old week!

1950s Housewife

I got to it with vigour last weekend sorting my sewing area then on Monday I got to sorting my desk and admin, this was a huge job. I hate filing, and particularly in Nov and Dec I'm too busy for admin/filing so it all gets totally out of hand to the point where I was avoiding working at my desk cos it was such a mess! Every bit of paperwork I got I just piled up on top of the last lot, but on Monday I worked til 9pm just to get it sorted. It was really bad, here are some before and after pics!



Depressing huh?



And breathe......





It's so nice to have it tidy!

Then as some of you may recall I said I needed to do some part time 'paid' work this year in an effort to get my debts in order. So on Tuesday I went to work for someone for just 4 hours, then on Wednesday I went to work for someone else for a whole day!!

Then yesterday morning I woke up and felt blumming dreadful.


So I spent all day in PJs, the day went so quickly and I just didn't feel better, today the same, I'm not terrible but not well enough to get on with anything, I'm so annoyed! I have so many things I want to get on with but I'm not stupid enough to just battle on, I know if I rest it won't last as long and I won't feel so bad, but grrrrrr it's frustrating!

I've got a busy and odd week coming up too so need to feel better pretty damn quick. I have a fabulous to do list which hasn't got done, I hate getting ill, it's awfully inconvenient.

Anyway hope you're all well!!

Annoying, yes, but at least you've gotten the desk sorted, that's a big one. But I know what you mean, when you finally get the motivation to do something and you're thwarted, well, it's bloody rude really, isn't it?

And when you'll get better you'll bounce back again! Hurrah!

Your "before" pic looks like my campus office. I hate it - but I'm constantly bombarded with paper, and it's hard to keep up! So glad you got your own office tidied up before you got sick. Take good care of yourself and get better soon! - Susan

You're very wise to take things easy for a day or two, by trying to fight the lurgy you end up ten times worse.
Great job on the paperwork. I hate all that side of self-employment, thanks god for a housetrained man. xxx

I hope you feel better soon!!

I pay a CPA to do my taxes (that's what you are talking about, right?) and he is worth every penny, even when money was super tight.

Self-employed, and the first time I looked at the forms for that I knew I had to hire someone to do it.

The deductions are way too complicated for me!!

Get well soon hugs!

Wow your desk looks great! I could do with taking a leaf out of your book! Hope the lurgy leaves you very soon - put your feet up and be kind to yourself!!
