Do you have any kind of problems getting and keeping your paperwork organised? Is your house and your workplace not as smoothly run as you would like? Is there a place for everything and everything in its place, or can you not remember the last place you put your spectacles/mobile phone/brain?

If any of this is remotely true for you, then I am the very last person in the world to help you. My paperwork, for example, is in such a state that - oh, let me just tell you this as a demonstrative example. I was supposed to have a job interview: this was according to the letter the employer I'd applied to sent me. So I had a scan through, dumped the forms I needed to fill in for the big day in my intray, and thought no more about it. Made a mental note of the big day I needed to be ready for, that was all.

Then, as the date grew nearer, it got around to the weekend. During which I got it fixated in my head that the interview was one day in the upcoming week. Did I bother to check this out with the actual letter? Now why would I do a thing like that?

I gathered together necessary documentation. I washed and pressed interview clothes. I filled in the requisite forms. I did all the prep necessary for tough interview questions. I packed my bag on the day with pens and an orange and a notebook and an envelope with all my papers. I travelled to the small town.

Then, sitting in a small cafe, I took another look at my documentation, and realised that I wasn't actually due to have the interview in question for another week.

That. That is how not organised I am. How can I tell you anything about how to get organised?

Excuse me. I'm just off to sort out and order my Tupperware. You have to start somewhere, you see.

      Know just what your talking about. I have a big basket that's where my paper work goes. I lose more stuff and never look at a date. Voted up.
