It’s all about me!

What did I learn about myself in 2011?  I hate these introspective topics, just so you know.  But I’ll be a good Babe.

I learned I don’t do well without structure in my world.  I’m an organization junkie and last year my world was a tad chaotic.  And I place full blame on me.  I should be a better delegator.  I should stop thinking that my way is the only way and ask for help more often.  This week is a perfect example.  I gave my hubby a slide converter for Christmas (he asked for it).  Did I set it up and explain how to turn his slides into stunning .jpegs?  Um, hell no.  Instead I scanned all 273 slides, 12 at a time, for him so he wouldn’t have to struggle learning a new skill.  I’m a moron.  It took forever and I personally don’t give a hoot about his slides.

I think it’s time to get a little selfish.  Selfish can be good.  Sometimes selfish is necessary.  With a little less time spent on other people’s stuff, I can spend more time making my world the organized little bastion I want it to be.  Maybe not a full-on ‘me first’ but in the old days I lived on a schedule.  I didn’t answer the phone when I was working.  I went to the store on a specific day and if we ran short of something the rest of the time I sent my hubby out to hunt and gather.  Hey – that‘s what men are supposed to do. 

Being a writer means being self-directed and apparently I can only do that if my planets are aligned.  That would be planet Bob and planet Katie.  He’s retired and she’s a teenager.  Time for more responsibility on their shoulders.  It’s not like I’d be asking them to split and stack wood.  Just easy stuff like make dinner once in a while and be responsible for their own laundry.  I need to spend more time writing and less time being someone’s bitch.  Because being the bitch makes me a bitch.  Maybe that’s what I learned about myself.

Deodorising your home – it seems that every single person will adore living in a freshly smelling home. Smells should first be neutralized (check baking soda cleaning tips) and then deodorising follows. By eliminating the source of the bad odour you deal with it at once, all that you can do next is to use an air-freshener to freshen up with an aroma of your choice.

St. Valentine's Day is approaching. Most people will spend it in the old-fashioned way - romantic dinner, candles, maybe a movie. However, not many people can afford a romantic dinner in a restaurant. The solution is to create a romantic sensation in your own home. Cleaners Aldgate recommend you to clean it first. This way it will smell clean and fresh. Then you can add some scent by boiling cinnamon or placing small bowls full of water and a few drops of a favourite essential oil. If you do not have the time to clean, then just give a call to cleaners Bellingham.
