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.
