Tidy, tidy, tidy!
Yesterday had a busy day washing, washing and washing. Then i went shopping and back home to make dinner. Then like a mad woman i cleaned the house from top to bottom with lots of screaming and shouting like a lunatic. I need to scream and shout because i have mad Italian blood in me with a mix of the Irish! My mum is Irish so i have developed these skills from her.
At about 10pm when normal people are relaxing i pulled my entire craft room apart and started to clean and dust just about every single last tiny thing. Chucked out 5 black bags of junk. The drawers that were meant to have all my materials in and that have slowly been emptied over the last year needed to be filled again in an organised way. I cried lots at this pint wishing i hadn't started what i thought would never end.
These drawres now sit all nice under my desk and its going to be so easy find whatever it is i'k looking for.
My ledge is all nice and clean and clear of the balancing act i'd created as an art form. This was all needed because the dust kept falling onto my desk and then into my clay. The room looks quite boring now and looks like nobody is working but was needed for my sanity.
I couldn't work in the mess, all i kept doing was cleaning and going through thousands of baby wipes and not getting anywhere. Which is probably why i have not made much for the last two weeks with all the baby wiping going on.
Now its like a new slate, everything is labelled so i can find it straight away and all that's on my ledge behind my desk is paintbrushes, scissors and the like.
In a few weeks going to buy a new desk for my computer and paper work and some shelves for above to hold books. Plus i think i need some more drawres because still have another 2 boxes to sort through, clean and lebel.
I also need to get something to sit in the middle of the room for the witches dolls house so i can finally start something for myself.
Hope i havn't bored you to tears.
Must dash. My husband and middle son have gone fishing somewhere in the english channel. The other two are acting like model children for some reason and so off to create something new before they arrive back with whatever smelly fish they catch.
The two of them went off at around 5am. Didn't hear them but god did they leave the kitchen trashed. So shall moan at them later... lol. Really not looking forward to their filthy stinky clothes later and black nails from squid ink...
The picture with the shelf and house etc needs to be worked on. This is all going in more drawers and my new desk when i finally go out and buy it.
