What is it about a glimmer of Spring-like weather that makes us want to sort…and not just have a little clean out but to sort obsessively, without forethought or preparation.
Spring is start to…well spring here in the UK and I have found myself in the midst of a sorting frenzy. Everywhere I look there seems to be something to sort – shoes, clothes, books, papers, recipes, filing, kitchen cupboards, plants, projects – and I can be meandering through the day completely on schedule only to be subsumed into an ‘I’ve had enough/I need to sort this now’ fugue from which I emerge with a flush of virtuous ‘sorted’ satisfaction…only to be followed by an ‘oops that took longer than I thought and now I really need to crack on and do the things I was actually planning to do’ feeling of slightly, mild-ish panic.
Does this actually happen to anyone else (apart from me & J…he’s a sorter too but not a thrower-outer…which explains why we still live next door to each other!)
Do you think that there is a completely rational, scientific explanation for this seasonal bout of obsessiveness? Or am I just Monica-Geller bonkers?
Maybe an intervention is in order….
