As far as I can remember, I’ve always had a somewhat obsessive organised streak within me. I guess it started with studying at school in the 90’s. Then ofcourse the TV series Friends was aired in the UK and Monica became my idol; the queen of being organised.
When I left home and bought my first flat, I didn’t care that you could barely swing a cat in it. It was mine, my own space and I treasured it. My job in marketing required list upon list and was/is very deadline orientated. After putting a day in at work, I would come home and not allow myself to sit down until I had cleaned the place from top to bottom (which didn’t take long at all!).
Back then, I only had myself to cater and care for. It was very easy to be on top of everything at home and at work. I have never felt so completely clear minded and on my A game since!
