So… What’s on your workdesk this Wednesday? Whether it’s neat and tidy, a mess, a hive of creativity or a blank space, it’s an opportunity for us all to have a jolly good nose around, courtesy of our lovely hostess, Julia. To join in the fun, click on the WOYWW link in my sidebar.
I’m a bit ashamed to show you mine this week… There’s not actually very much of interest on my workdesk at all – only junk, which is everywhere else too!!! It looks as if World War III has broken out.
I’ve had another stint in my ARTHaven, clearing out stuff. I’ve decided I’ve got far too much junk, and when my hubby retires in a couple of years’ time we’ve got to have an awful lot less stuff than we’ve got now, and given my low energy levels, I thought it would be good to make a start quite a long time before I have to!
Now for a big public admission – I’m a terrible cardboard box hoarder! It’s a bit sad when you have your old favourites that you are reluctant to throw away, isn’t it. I had a huge cardboard box full of… cardboard boxes! This has now GONE!! I’m just keeping a few that might come in useful but the rest have to go.
My ambition initially is to get rid of one whole section of my big black shelving unit (behind the black bookcase on the left of the picture) but I’m not there yet. I’ve already been through my bookcases and weeded out quite a lot of books I don’t want any more – my hubby has had a huge clear out of his and got rid of loads, but knowing him, he’s only got to go past a second hand book shop or a village fete book stall, and he’ll fill all the gaps again!!
As for creativity, all I’ve done this week is finish unravelling my first knitted dress, wash the wool, and start knitting. I’ve done a blog post about that. I’ve also done a small amount on Inkscape but no cutting again this week – poor Sheba, my Black Cat Cougar cutting machine, is complaining again that I didn’t buy her to gather dust! It’s been a fairly busy week, with taking my parents out for lunch on Sunday, and setting up our new TV which involved a lot of exhausting grovelling behind the TV with a torch!
I hope everyone else has been a bit more creative than me this week, and that you will all have a happy WOYWW.
