I have to say i am a little more than tidy.Even to being obsessive.Take last night.I noticed cooking oil had splashed over the oven as Mrs P had fried off some meat.Trouble was it was 21-30,so i began cleaning,i put the racks in a bucket of soapy water and bleach,took all the moveable bits and soaked them in hot soapy water brushed them with a hard brush,then i washed down the oven surface and finally polished it.After a soak in bleach which i left in for forty mins,i washed everything off and put it all back.It's like i have to empty the dishwasher and stuff left drying on the sink before i have my brekkie or shower.Gardening i will do three quarters of the work then tidy that up and away composting or brow bin,then i will finish the last bit,so leaving me less to tidy up.Things around the house must have places away out of sight,alas it is not always appreciated.

A brow bin - that really is obsessive. I wipe my sweat off on my hand.
Hair clippings just fall on the floor.

Haha. You had me going there. For a moment I thought you were serious. Then the penny dropped as I realised nobody can be as neat and tidy as that :wacko:

I'm with you, Mo. I invite people round just so I'm forced into doing some housework. :tongue:
But don't you find they invite themselves around when your place is a dump,then when you eventually clean up then sit back and admire your achievement no one comes round again till the place is once again untidy.:headshake:

Barnet,
I'll own up. I know where everything is in the shed, tools, bikeparts gardening equipment etc. Same in the house. Everything in place, a place for everything.

I've come across long discussions on Carpentry and woodwork forums about how often you should tidy your work area. Several people said it interrupted their creative processes.
It seems in a lot of cases creativity and mess making go hand in hand.
It’s funny. My dad had a massive workshop jammed wall to wall and floor to ceiling with turning lathes, saw benches, power drills, welder, air compressor, grinding machine, etc plus literally dozens of smaller power and hand tools and spares of all descriptions. You could barely thread your way through it, yet if you asked him where something was, he always seemed to know! Lol.

I invite people round... Just so they can go home and realise their own places, no matter how untidy, aren't really so bad..:angel:

There's farm work, and, cycling, and walking, and camping, and yoga, and socialising, and and and, lots of far more interesting things to be done..
