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!!!
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.
