I am back after a lovely week away spending time in Essex with friend's for a wedding and then visiting my Mum in Margate for a few days. It was just what the doctor ordered! I did very little of anything and I think it was good to have a break from writing and get my mind a little more focussed for the busy upcoming weeks. I did manage to finish reading Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane and will write up a review in the next couple of days.
Today as planned I am going to tackle the desk area in our bedroom which I am now claiming as mine! We had set it up for my husband and the course he was doing but the company folded and still waiting to hear what will happen about that.
Here is the before picture I promised! The desk itself is pretty clear but there is a mounting pile of 'stuff' around it that needs to be sorted out. I will be very glad to sort through it and clear the space again and hopefully keep it that way. It is going to involve a little more work as the curtain you can see to the left of the picture came off the wall the same day I blogged about sorting the desk. The night before we headed to Essex I went upstairs to find the curtain rail and the piece of wood it was fixed to on the floor! It is surprising it hasn't fallen off before as it is another bit of botched DIY from the previous resident. The screws are no where near long enough to hold the piece of wood and the inevitable has happened. So presently we have a tablecloth up held up with pegs. It was the best we could manage at short notice! We'll get that fixed this coming week and if this afternoon goes well I should be able to get to the desk as well.
Oh and I have also changed my background on the blog - hope you like it!
