Okay its finally done if a little cluttered still.
It is amazing what you can do with an old desk, a couple of old bookcases and some MDF lol, at the minute it is rather cluttered still as I have lots of things that were stacked in different places awaiting me sorting them and as the room needs decorating that will get done before the desk gets arranged completely to my satisfaction.
I have around ten box files and about twenty arch lever files full of stuff from college and uni, and while I am loathe to get rid of any of it am sure if I am honest it can be trimmed and organised better to fit into fewer files and all the loose paperwork which has strayed needs sorting out so the huge pile you see there will disappear.
As you can see I found even more note pads and pens as I cleared up, some I have not got a clue what is in them and a few house a couple of treasures including a drawing I did of an Elephant and some lovely simple ink line drawings which I shall share at a later date (okay slightly bigheaded I know buti do actually really love them and had forgotten all about them)
Moving round a little you can see some of my herd of elephants again in moving things I found some I had forgotten I even had (there are about a hundred still packed away with assorted other ornaments I do need a bigger house really). Also some of my bookmarks this is my new collecting ‘thing’ as they are more practical then the elephants and take up less space.
More of the herd plus a few dragons mixed in and another pile of notebooks to go through. I know some people like a nice clear work space but I love having things around me that have special meaning most of these were bought by my daughter for me over the years.
Finally the chair, it belonged to Lee’s grandad who passed away a few years ago and is far more comfy than the desk chair, when I type I sit forward and am at the perfect heigh, while I muse I can sit back and relax, it also doubles as my shawl holder if you were wondering lol.
Anyway that is my new space hope you like it, can’t wait till the clutter goes down and the rest can be spread out a little. Now to explore some more of those notebooks….
