Sorting things out

Well it is just like leaving home and losing your telephone directory. I think I have now found everyone and have suscribed to the followers list.

Apart from that life is hectic at present both workwise and homewise. I am ploughing through mountains of paperwork to try and get my life into some sort of paperwork order. I was painted at work and had 13 years worth of paperwork to sort out. Managed to sort all the loose stuff out that had never got filed, and now I need to go through files and filing cabinets to sort them out. I took the drastic decision to open folders on my Outlook email and just drag emails there, rather than print meeting notes out. I have been doing that for a year now, and guess what - I had my computer upgraded last week and they lost all of my sub-folders - still at least I did not need to make a decision of what to keep and what not to keep.

At home, paperwork is pretty much the same - there is so much junk mail that comes through the post and I swear I throw it out as soon as it arrives, but I still managed to half fill the recycling bin this evening. Then of course there are all the half read magazines that I never get chance to read, and the craft magazines I buy with good intent but never start or finish the projects.

My SO is away on business so at least that gives me a chance for some semi-serious sorting out.

Well enough of my ramblings, time for bed

Nite, nite

I am always amazed at the amount of junk mail that comes through our letter slot each day!!! Our paper bin is just loaded with it every two weeks when we put it out for recycling. All that money and paper wasted!

I think we are all finally getting it together over here a blogger and getting used to the system. Junk mail, we get tons of it, every single day we throw away so much. Well, as Marie said, it gets reclycled but it drives us mad!
