Only got five minutes but didn’t want you thinking I had abandoned you again!
I was definitely tempting fate when I tried to resolve my discontent with my inadequate workspace all at once. In the beginning i managed to resolve lighting issues ( so I could actually see what i was doing) . Next i sorted desk height issues. My current desk being made for a twelve year olden therefore giving me constant back ache. I even managed to acquire a reasonable comfortable chair that I could sit on for more than half an hour at a time – Thanks Mum!
So I finally had a reasonable workspace –
ok I still had to remove half a ton of junk to get to my desk (but I mastered clearing that in under five minutes) . And it was still so hot in that room it was like working in a ‘devils pit’ – needed to keep a constant fan on just to breath . But it was my space to use whenever i could free up a little bit of time ….It didn’t last long!!!
Here is my current desk…..
In answer to the above question of – whats on my work desk ?
– well its soon to be the entire contents of my house, including eighteen years of hoarding’s from loft. My desk alas has become the house packing area.
Let me explain. We have very patiently waited for eight years now, on a council waiting list for a larger property as our children boy and girl have had to share a bedroom. We had just about given up all hope of being offered anything, so had resolved to making the best of what space we had – hence the desk sorting. When suddenly at the end of July things began to look a bit more hopeful. We were nearing the top of the list ( coming in the top ten instead of top ‘twenty’, or ‘not prioritised’, and then in august being in the top five) .
Suddenly we are getting offers for more suitable accommodation,- although nothing is finalised yet – we are waiting on key returns and viewings – but now with the prospect of moving in only a few short weeks- everything that was planned is ‘up in the air’ once more and I’m wondering how we get everything moved, an sorted in such a short space of time.
So my current occupation –
in addition to already managing a household with kids and trying to start an art business and being everybody’s PA (lol). I am now ‘manager of house clearance’. Cos live obviously wasn’t busy enough. I’ve pulled a lot of unwanted things from the loft to sell or donate. The amount of rubbish and recycling hidden up there is unbelievable. We’ve already filled the car twice over to take it to the tip . And what once was my desk is now a packing area. As jobs go , its defiantly full-time and intense. And will probable prevent me from getting anywhere with my art for a time. Most of my art gear is already packed up so i could make some space available for packing boxes . I don’t envisage it being unpacked again for quite some time!
I have managed to sort a small supply of art things which i will try to keep available. Otherwise i will go mad! – but don’t know realistically how much time i will get to use them, especially in the packing period! I hope to have enough space in any new accomodations for a proper workspace – but only time will tell, and it definitely needs thorough planning. I certainly don’t want to be making any changes once its set up, so I don’t know when this will be accomplished.
– so watch this space.
