And it's something that has not changed throughout my life, it's just a constant I can't seem to change.
Despite pretty much always having a job that involved administration in some part, my desk at home is always a mess!
The picture above was taken a few weeks ago. This week it was piled much higher than this, until the Hubster finally put his cowboy boot down (which you don't mess with!) and now it's immaculate, kinda!
These drawers might look like they are there for papers that are organised. But the only thing organised about these papers is, I know I need to keep them, so they get filed (shoved) in there!
Now flip to the picture below.....this is my work desk. Please note the immaculately organised filing systems on the desk and to the right side. Although you can't see into it, the bookcase on the left is equally well-organised and tidy.I am totally fanatical about my desk at work being uncluttered and clear, especially as people walk into the office all the time.
I have a theory on why I have always been a clean desk fanatic at work, and basically a desk slut at home!
Because just like the chef who doesn't cook at home, I am the administrator who doesn't do paperwork at home. It's just a little too like bringing my work home. The Hubster however, fails to be sympathetic to this theory!
