Yesterday my new ironing board was delivered. My ironing pile is still high enough to worry Health and Safety officials but it has shrunk. Sometime ago I got to the bottom of a long standing pile, and I suspect that I will be able to sort out a lot of stuff again when I can find the will to finish the job.
When the ironing pile has diminished a lot more I will be able to get some units put together that have been delivered but are not yet assembled. Then I will have places to put some of the stuff that is currently heaped. Not having places for eg sheets is a problem. Then I can get in and sort out the walk in cupboard. This will start acting like a proper pantry and allow me to move a lot of kit out of the kitchen where it is again heaped. Once there are places for everything in the kitchen then I will be better able to keep good order there.
Mind you, a lot of the stuff will need to go into my room which still isn't sorted. It will be, though.
It's a work in progress. I am optimistic.
