Quite ready to admit to being a nosey parker.
Its so funny to think that some of you know what the contents of my cupboards look like - without necessarily knowing anything much else about me.
the strange world of blogging...
Anyway, I posted some pics a while back of the view from my computer desk... this sort of a view:
I've been getting quite a bit of entertainment lately from watching the little teeny tiny mice outside this window, hiding from the neighbourhood cats and nibbling on the bird seed which I've spilled while filling the bird-feeders.
I will get a photo of them if I can.
oh, oh and I just remembered, oh this is another thing I have been watching from my computer desk lately:
Unlike the unfortunate spiders who build their beautiful webs across the front door, this spider seems to have picked a pretty feasible and sustainable location and I hope this web lasts and lasts.
And, no doubt, i will take photos and more photos...
and here is my main workspace itself.
Items of note: most importantly, cup of tea. Also, card-reader, iPod cable, scribbled note about things not to forget to do today, box of tissues, spare pens and clangers.
When I moved desks and computers a month or so ago, I wasn't sure how I would cope with such a small desk space.
Well..... I am tending to spread onto the floor
Though I write etc. mostly at the computer, I still need space for books and papers...
... but this is in a more controlled way than previously.
Compare the floor space near my desk and bureau, as it has been in the past (fairly habitually):
and as it is now.
Congrats to me, n'est ces pas?
(note my camera, at the ready for photos of spiders, mice....)
The bureau itself is another story...
I do most of my work at the computer now, hence the spilling over onto the floor phenomenon.
But there are some things I still sit and do the old fashioned way - and the only space I (potentially) have is at the bureau.
I was at my sister's house last weekend, and she too (recently) has taken possession of a family bureau.
And the front flap/desk-bit shuts!
And when you open it, there is space!
its an inspiration!
As is my niece, A., (known to
Isn't that great?
Particularly in the light of recent hand-written correspondence from friends which encourages me (as does my niece) to spend time writing, as well as all the time at the computer, I plan a purge of this bureau.
In about 4 weeks, which is when my current workload should decline somewhat, I will sort and file and destroy and consign to garbage/recycling, and be ruthless .... and I will endeavour to clear the bureau so that it can be shut.
And opened again.
and sat at.
and used for writing....
and not just checking bank statements, but writing letters, and cards, and postcards... and Jane-Austen-style stuff
so Look Out
SO now you know about my cupboards, and about my workspace
how WEIRD is that?
