WOYWW 241

What’s on my workdesk this Wednesday? Rather a mess! Just when I think I am getting my new ARTHaven tidied up, I make it all messy again. This week I have again been working on the album about my dad’s life. This had to be put on the back burner for a few months while we moved house, and now that we are settled, it was the first project I wanted to take up again, especially in view of my dad’s recent death. This album will be in memory of him and will contain a lot of things he did and enjoyed during his long life.

The large banana box contained a lot of material I rescued when we sold my parents’ house in the spring. It’s all been emptied out so that I could sort and scan it. There are piles of stuff everywhere, and around my desk in the office, too. The main work area looks remarkably tidy with just the page I am currently working on.

I have just got a new computer and my time is very much taken up with that at the moment – learning Mac after a computing lifetime of Windoze… I’ve got a lot invested in the latter, and am delighted to be able to continue using my favourite programs with the addition of an app called Parallels for Mac, which integrates the two systems as much as possible. I am also trying to sort and tidy my office and there’s a huge backlog of work in there, which would progress a lot faster if I could actually discipline myself to do some filing for starters! I hate mess and clutter but seem to attract it like the plague.

Have a great week everyone.

  1. You are certainly making good use of all that space, Shoshi. I can see it in my mind's eye - and see you sitting there having great fun.
    Have a good week.

  2. Ah it looks grand..even with a banana box in view! Bet you're enjoying even more the process of your Dad's album now that you're installed and comfy and can allow the memories to take their time. Good for you too - the change from windows to Mac is one that I've tried in the past...it's a process!
