Organisation Porn

Does anyone else spend their evenings on Pinterest scrolling through the amazing home decor and home organising posts while a sense of calm falls upon them? No? Oh me either. I was asking on behalf of a friend. I don't ever do that, it would be weird...

Okay I lied. For me organising things is like crack to an addict. I crave it and if things are out of place it irritates me until I fix it. Everyone makes jokes about how I have OCD but I'm pretty sure I don't. I just like things a certain way and no I will not clean your house for you.

If you're like me then this post will be like porn for you, if not then stop judging me at get these books out. They're wonderful.
