If you had to look-up ‘OCD Neat Freak’ in the dictionary, you’ll most likely find my mugshot there. Do I color code James & the kids’ cupboards? Yes. Do all the hangers face the same way? Yes. Do all the labels in my pantry cupboard face forward? Yes. Do I like anything off centre or at a 45 degree angle? No.
The one place that my disorder clearly gave a big fat skip, is my desktop on my computer. I treat it like the sticky note pad for my mind. Lets just say, a new mommy cat will have difficulty finding her litter…… It drives James mad – he just can’t understand how I can be so utterly anal and organised in all other departments, except for this one.
This is me – should my desktop content decide to attack me.
Well, I can’t explain it either, so there you have it. But, as they say, something good always comes out of something bad, so was the case indeed with my looked-like-it-got-hit-by-a-bomb desktop. Not sure why, but found this pic – could have been that I saved it for my dad – a major vintage motorcycle enthusiast, but honestly saying, I really don’t have the foggiest clue.
The only neural pathway motorcycles in my mind connects with, is that of moto jackets. Now that would make total sense to me. So I thought in the spirit of my chaotic desktop, that we should at least celebrate its offerings! Here’s to moto jackets!
