{22} Storage solutions?

I yearn for order and organisation within the home. I harbour a misguided belief that if only I had the right storage solutions and everything had a place, then life would be easy, calm, happy, serene.

 

But the problem is I'm not a tidy, organised person. I didn't marry a tidy organised person (domestically at least), and as for the children... No matter how hard I try I will never achieve a neatness nirvana, I know it's out of my reach. And the truth is something in me rebels against order. I want to sabotage it because I know I can't maintain its demands.

 

I had dutifully counted the number of shoes that needed boxing and bought the requisite number in the appropriate sizes. But as I stacked them them into the wardrobe, it all felt too sterile, unreal. I already miss the collapsing cardboard boxes. It's only a matter of time before the new boxes are lid-less, the columns are collapsed and the shoes are strewn.
