Do you know what I mean?
Stuff!!!! Everywhere!!! And most of it belongs to me!!
I am in a constant state of frustration - everytime I want something in my tiny sewing room I have to move twenty four other things to get it and then put them all back to use the thing!!!
Well, that's not quite true actually, usually they don't get put back - but simply slide to the floor in a sad heap in way that makes me want to join them!
My constant moaning about the state of things has had a bit of an impact on lovely S. however, and although he had already agreed that when he had finished his book, I could swap rooms with him and have the lovely front room which is currently his office with all of it's SPACE!! this seemed such an interminably long way off that little hints and visits to said room to 'size up the place' for where to put shelves and such-like have obviously had the wonderfully desired effect. He has agreed to move a little earlier. Yes, I think you could say he has been 'worn down!!!'
I do think he would be much better cocooned into my sweet but little sewing room where I am going to make him a lovely tidy little office where he can lay out his books and leave them to his heart's content and where no-one will bother him!!!
I, on the other hand, will be much happier with my buttons and fabric in the big square Victorian front room with it's shuttered windows and lovely stone fireplace!!! Ooooh!! you see, I have BIG PLANS!
I will have to be ingenious as there is no money in the pot for the streamlined built-in shelves of my dreams - but instead I will have to filch shelves and such-like from the other rooms in the house, hoping no-one really notices the piles from said shelves, left in their place!
No-one will notice. It's only me that tidies anyway.
Will keep you posted!
