Darling, the legs aren't so beautiful, I just know what to do with them.

Boy, I sure needed that pretty strong cup of coffee that I just had. To celebrate the fact that I have regained my happiness because of it, I am having a second one, although I think it is completely unnecessary, but I would rather be safe than sorry. 

I was experiencing a minor dip when I said goodbye to the domestic help, who completely reorganized my bathroom for which I am very grateful. Of course, she came with a whole new look on the situation and a willingness to tackle it, because she wants to set my whole life back on the rails. At least on the domestic front, because no matter how organized I think I am, she feels it can be done better. 

I do not think that this knowledge was the cause of my minor dip. I had not had any caffeine for a long while and I was obviously going through withdrawal. The domestic help and I drank tea during her break and, although it is a tasty beverage, it is not as uplifting to my spirit as coffee is. Let's face it, whatever caffeine is in it does not do a thing for me. If I went to a cake and tea shop, I would order coffee. 

Now that I have this very neatly organized bathroom, I feel that I am getting closer to my ultimate goal, and that is having this apartment ready for the move up north, whenever that may be. This domestic help does open my eyes to the fact that there are other things I can do that will bring me closer to that state of existence. She infects me with her drive and enthusiasm to tackle things. She must be a special gift sent especially to me at this time of my life. 

Timing is everything in life and sometimes you have to let the hand of fate determine that. If you try to force things, you end up getting an ulcer.

I don’t quite understand why you must reorganise the bathroom when you are planing to move flats anyway?

However, having somebody arrange it for you and doing it well, is always a pleasure.

Yes, it will happen when it is supposed to happen.

I wouldn't want anyone reorganising my things! I would have to be the one to direct them with things that I couldn't tackle, but I wouldn't want them to reorganise into their personalities!
I think maybe that you strive for perfection thats not always necessary.

It is so cold here tho' a bit sunnier. Hope you are having better.
