Another Wednesday means another chance to snoop around the world of workdesks. Click on the WOYWW logo in my sidebar to find out more.
Not a lot to report this week on my new ARTHaven because the builders have been concentrating on the annexe so we can move Mum’s stuff in, in advance of our own move. It’s all go now and there’s a lot to do.
However, Chris has assembled my last remaining section of large black shelving unit, and organised the free-standing storage area of the room. This is not the pretty side of the room, but it’s against the dividing wall between the ARTHaven proper and the office area, and you don’t immediately see it, until you enter the room.
Much prettier is this:
He’s hung my shabby chic shelving unit that I got on Ebay. I painted it white because the original artificially distressed finish was just that – artificial – the distressing was added randomly and not in places where something would naturally get worn, and it looked horrible! Much better plain white. This area above the blocked-off fireplace is going to be my display area.
You can see a few things that I’ve snuck in ahead of time – my sewing machine, a Really Useful box, a length of guttering that I’m going to use to make my ruler store, and the black thing on the shelf is my new gooseneck camera clamp for holding the video camera.
I can’t put everything in until Tim the electrician has connected up the power points and installed the lights. He’s very busy in the annexe at the moment so I will have to wait. I am keen to get on, because my hubby wants to put stuff in the room where all my ARTHaven stuff is currently stored, and I want to get it sorted before Mum’s stuff arrives on 23rd August – my work will be cut out after that, to get it straight before our main move (no date as yet for that).
So, we’re getting there, slowly but surely!
I haven’t been too well this week – my colitis has been flaring which is a real bore – I’ve got my hospital appointment to see the gastroenterologist next Tuesday and it can’t come soon enough. Also, yesterday morning I woke up with cystitis and had a very unpleasant day dealing with frequent and painful peeing! However, my dear hubby went and got my prescription of antibiotics which I started last night, and after only one dose I started to feel very much better, and this morning it feels quite normal again – amazing! I have to complete the 5-day course, of course, because if you stop when you start to feel better, it can come back again, and worse, because the bacteria develop resistance to the drug. (I wish people would learn this lesson about antibiotics – I am sure that widespread misuse of them has contributed to our current problems with antibiotic resistance. This includes sharing them with others, which is a huge no-no – for starters it means you aren’t taking your full course, and secondly, these are prescription drugs and should never be taken without the advice of a doctor. I am constantly hearing of people who don’t follow these simple rules.)
Happy WOYWW, everyone, and thanks to Julia for organising it again.
