Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners Show

Do you want to be on telly?
 Sometimes hoarders have the intention of starting anew and to get rid of their rclutter  but as it soon dawns on them  it is not just about removing the physical objects,it's also about overcoming psychological obstacles and habits. As I have said in the past, Channel four sensitively deals with this in The Hoarder Next Door as does a the programme Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners. I admit to watching the latter with fascination here people on the other end of the OCD spectrum-obsessive cleaners are invited to make use of their cleaning habit to clean hoarders or those peoples homes where they have let things slide. The results are usually positive and inspirational and at times a valuable personal insightful  journey for both OCD participants.
Well anyway if you absolutely want to have your house cleaned and receive some help from a team of  psychologists and aftercare then why not participate in the next  series. If you have further questions please email me and I shall forward you the details of who you can contact.

1p books!
A few weeks ago my dad had a startled revelation. Everyone has heard of people making money from selling on Amazon and Ebay, well my dad thought this would be a good idea, so I typed in details of his books on to Amazon and to his disgust there were many copies of these science books starting at 1p! In fact every single book had a starting value of 1p and there were many copies. Talk about not being worth the paper they are printed on.So it would actually cost more for packaging and seller fees. A lot of books have ended up in my garage : ( such a reluctant dutiful daughter.
We are considering just sending these books to a paper recycling firm which would hopefully pay us.I hear they usually pay by the tonne....I am sure we would have a tonne.

Even if we did get rid of these books the problems lies in my dad continuing to go for his ritual of visiting Sunday carboot sales to find "bargains".
It is a deep psychological addiction for finding bargains and become over attached to them to the point of being selfish and reducing the quality of ones own life and relationship that creates difficulties in hinders us of being a happy family. And that is priceless.
