I think it’s worth emphasizing that, as far as I understand, the very idea of domesticity that Jim had was quite unusual in itself. He was apparently always hiding his own personal possessions before visitors came in, for example, so it was not, never, the kind of domestic environment that you’d expect to find when you walk into someone’s home. It was always quite controlled and certainly not something that would have that element of unpredictability and chance, you know, finding things that shouldn’t really be there. Jim was always very aware of the position of pretty much everything so in that sense, you know, it’s not the kind of domestic environment that one would associate with everyday living.
