Picture the scene;

...the place, the walk-in-robe; time, first thing in the morning.  Our protagonist is rummaging frantically around in her wardrobe, looking for a dress, not just any dress, but the dress, the winter dress she has firmly set her mind on wearing.
Mutters, "...must be here, somewhere..."
Hangers, two and sometimes even three deep in garments are flying back and forth across the rail...
Thinks: surely I haven't tossed out that dress.  I like that dress!
Five more minutes of mad rummaging, during which our protagonist climbs up onto a stool and starts to ruthlessly toss stuff from the top shelf, going through the mess of scarves, gloves, tights and other assorted accessories that live on the top shelf.  Well, mess, let's just say it wasn't a mess before she started on her quest...
Suddenly she stops short, climbs down and races (uhuh, half-dressed, it's a good thing everyone else has left the house...) to the cupboard under the stairs.  A vacuum cleaner, mop and broom are removed from where they have been shoved haphazardly and in an unloved manner just inside the door, and are stacked against a dining room chair, where they inevitably slid off and crash onto the floor.  Our half-dressed heroine hasn't noticed.  She has cast aside some tennis racquets, blow-up mattresses and a doll's pram.  She emerges finally with a suitcase and pauses to unzip a small aperture, checks inside with a handy torch before diving back into the cupboard for the next suitcase.  Finally a little aha! of triumph, and she extracts the elusive dress from amongst other winter-y woolies in, like, the last suitcase.  She puts it on, and stops to survey the incredible mess she has created, but she is already late, so off she goes to run her errands before meeting her friends for morning tea.  But she gets home, the chaos is still there.  Obviously...
I need to get my act together, sort out those darn winter clothes...
