Does anyone remember this show called crystal maze?? well,my house is exactly like a set of crystal maze.. To navigate the guest bedroom one has to jump over bags of bric brac, chocolate supplies, bags of clothes in various states of unuse( yeah,some salwars don't have naada , some have a tear,some have been abandoned for reasons not known to mankind.. I have around 50 different taxonomical classifications,you see), dabbas with God knows what,cassettes,cds,books,bags, boxes filled to the brim with papers and bottles and of course the usual suspects.. a couch,a computer table,newpaper stand.. Now,sometimes it does cross my mind that i am abusing a poor lil 70 sq ft space..How can someone cram so much stuff into one lil patch? well,ergonomically it can be done.. and i have a master belt in that !!
For the curious minded,The Guest bedroom is called that cos Hubby and i delude ourselves into thinking that someday human beings might actually want to inhabit that space.. As far as any guest accommodation goes,the couch on the living room is the most hospitable space at home..more hospitable than even the bedroom!..That's not a random observation.. something someone actually told us !! .The poor lil bedroom is crammed with more stuff,of course!! ..there are bars of chocolates,papers,papers ,more papers (god knows where they come from !!!) and all kinds of junk.. My maid finds it an ordeal to jump over these packets of Happiness & materialism and tells me everyday that i should be moving out and looking for a new house ..!! huh !!!
So,thats what we are gonna do..We have a lot of memories(good and bad) in this house.. and though it might not be a palace,its a place where a lot of changes happened in our life.. Maybe,that's why we need to find another place..I would have to start with de-cluttering as much as possible.. Now,thats going to be an ordeal .. How does one throw out the empty bottles of Johnny walkers and study materials on Credit crunch,which are no longer useful to me ? ..sigh!!!...tough times ahead !
