We all say it, week by week… “Where’s the last week gone?” but here we are, back on the world’s biggest nosey fest, peeking at each other’s work desks to see what everyone’s up to, and secretly boasting “My desk’s tidier/untidier…” – the weekly celebration that’s What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW). To join in, click on the link in my sidebar which will take you to the home of Julia, Headmistress of the Desks, who organises us all.
After last week’s effort when I had no photo to show you because my graphics computer was out of action (got my new power adaptor now so all’s well again), I haven’t got much to report this week either – mostly because I’ve been glued to the Olympics, and also because in between, I’ve been having a major clear-out in my ARTHaven, which also doubles as an office.
No annotations this week (just so you don’t expect it every week lol!). Better point out the fudge in the right foreground though. This is for my mum. Honest. Not a bite shall pass Shoshi’s lips, I promise!
We’ve got under two years to downsize drastically – if all goes according to plan, we’ll get my elderly parents moved, and then when my hubby retires, we will move in with them. We’ve found the house we all want, but cannot progress further until my parents’ house sells (still no news on that front…) My new ARTHaven will be a lot smaller, but I will have the advantage of being able to plan it from scratch. Nevertheless I shall have to get rid of a lot of stuff, and much of this will be on the office side. Over the past few days my shredder has been working overtime (to the extent that every now and again it cuts out because it’s got too hot!) and I’ve emptied an entire filing cabinet drawer of redundant papers (including about 30 years’ worth of old diaries!), spare stationery (now redistributed), and I’m gradually working my way through a drawer-full of audio cassette tapes which are being copied onto my old desktop computer (the only computer in the house with a line-in socket!). This filing cabinet will eventually go.
So – as you can see from the above photo, the place is a tip while this is all going on, and I can’t get near the desk to do anything constructive, and while the Olympics are on, I can’t really concentrate on it anyway!
The Olympics are also to blame for my very poor performance in visiting desks last week (no gold medals there for Shoshi then). Perhaps I built up some credit a couple of weeks ago, visiting every single one!! I don’t suppose I shall do much better this week.
Have a great week everyone, and I hope you end up being more creative than I anticipate being.
