Happy last WOYWW of 2022! Blimey. Roll on 2023…
I wish I could say I was starting the year with a tidy space. Well, maybe by the 1st it will be but it very much is NOT at the moment. Providing for the family without the help of my Covid-infected Hubster is a challenge. He has been a stellar patient, but now getting bored and hoping for a negative test very soon. Edited to add: Yeah. Nah. Positive for Covid. Bah! Because of my condition and meds I am eligible for the anti-virals, so just waiting on the NHS to contact me….
Oh yeah, the desk. I can’t even begin to explain the half-finished or completed projects on show here.
With Dear Son having taken over my sewing room, the ironing board and my sewing machine have relocated to my craft room. It is very crowded in here.
The sewing machine is on top of my largest self-healing mat because DS took it off the table he is using for his monitors and put it upright at an angle with a corner curled over. It’s take a couple of weeks with the machine on it to get to back to flat (sigh)
The other areas of the room are as bad. My pile of stuff to the side of my desk (mostly gel print-related) with my bookbinding cradle is totally obscured. You can see my traveller’s notebook cover for 2023 journaling. there at the top. I have two monthly inserts completed and will do a couple more if I ever get time at my desk this week.
and all the random things shoved into my spray-box on the other side … all chaos. Pillow is meant for the cat, but she is still not willing to risk coming into my office very often. Probably a good thing, actually.
Really I need a few hours of clear time to make some headway and get back to a stable state!
I will share another cat photo. The Hubster caught this shot on his way to dinner the other night – she still loves that perch at the top of the stairs but at night, the motion sensitive lights are a fab toy for her.
What a goofball! She’s got that 1000-yard stare down pat…
So I wish my desk was inspiring for the last one of the year but honestly that’s just how it goes. No point in promising to “do better in 2023” cause in all the WOYWWs I have done since… 2009? the % that have been tidy is well and truly overwhelmed by the messy ones. And my room is never the beautiful mess that makes you go YUM, it is always the vaguely chaotic mess of a whirling dervish-like mind. And it is always going to be that way.
Buckle up and enjoy the ride, cause I’m afraid it is more of the same in 2023!!
Happy post-Christmas, pre-New Year WOYWW!!
