ARTHaven in the Making! - 2

I've had a good session today, clearing another drawer of my filing cabinet. Although this hasn't done much as far as the progress towards an ARTHaven is concerned, I feel better for having done it, as I'd wanted to do it for ages. I generated a huge pile of paper for recycling, and also 5 carrier-bags-full of shredded paper!

I've also organised the boxes for the fete and stacked things up a bit, so the floor is clearer. It is definitely looking better than it was. Don't you agree? Weeellll... perhaps you don't! Still looks a mess, doesn't it!!!

04 ARTHaven in the Making 16 Aug 10

Still no new monitor. In the meantime, though... this afternoon, that desktop computer showed all the signs of having a hard disc failure... If only it had done it 3 weeks ago! Then I would not have bought the monitor... I had originally thought of getting rid of the computer, but decided to keep it as it might be useful. Now I'm in a quandary. I think I am going to get it fixed, but rather than getting them to put a new hard drive in, I'm going to ask them to transfer its second hard drive as I don't really need 2 now. That will save some money anyway. It couldn't have happened at a worse time. I don't really want to spend a lot of money on that computer as I've got enough expenses at the moment getting my ARTHaven set up how I want it.

I'll give the computer shop a ring tomorrow and see what they say. And will I get my new monitor tomorrow???

Oh yes, and also this evening, there was a huuuuge spider on the wall in there - big as a dinner plate! Aaaaaagghhh! I hate, hate, hate them! My hubby had gone to bed, but he's such a star - he got up and got rid of it for me! I said to him "Are you still awake?" and he said "Yes." When I told him what was the matter, he said "What would you have done if I'd said I wasn't awake?" I said "If you'd said you weren't awake, I'd have known you were awake!!!"

Slow but steady progress towards my ARTHaven! It's probably a good thing I can't do it all in a rush, because I've got time to think about what I want to do and how I want to arrange things.


  1. What a huge project! I sure wish you the best with it. I know it's not all that easy for you, but it will be awesome when it's done! And good luck with getting your new "wheels" and whatever else you need.

  2. Thanks Lynette! I'm getting there - slowly!
