I am deconstructing the mound of fabric that is my 'dining room'. I have to put 'dining room' in commas as it hasn't been dined in for nearly ten years. Instead there is this huge heap of ironing, towels, bedding, more ironing, coat hangers, ironing and lots of clothes bear has grown out of (that need ironing). I haven't been able to get to a large part of it due to the over large ironing board. It sort of blocks things off and makes things murder to get to and if things slip down a mound then they are impossible to reach. I have been saying that I will get on top of the ironing and when I do then I will sort things out. However it has been looking less and less possible. So I thought I would start by excavating.
It is incredibly depressing. It just seems to keep on coming. However I am don't want to outsource the ironing, even just temporarily, as I want to feel the pain of getting it straight and know that I will never do it again. This may be wishful thinking, but it's a theory. Another problem is that there is nowhere to put eg towels. They do not have a designated home. Neither do pillow cases. There just isn't anywhere to put them.
I am just trudging on while bear is at holiday club, mainly in short, baffled bursts. On the bright side, I've found a vacuum cleaner I'd forgotten we had.
