However, once I am done I generally need to pack it all away as the space needs to be used for something else or I need to protect it from the prying eyes and hands of my inquisitive toddler. How nice it would be to be able to come into a room or space and for it to already be set up and when I am done to simply close my laptop and not to have to tidy it all away.
Now, as some of you may know, we are going to be moving house soon as we have finally managed to sell ours (after a blooming year because apparently people want the Earth these days… gift wrapped too) so we are going to be moving to a brand new house – still to be confirmed, so watch this space. Anyway, in our new place I am really and truly hoping that even if there isn’t a whole room, there may be a corner, just for me, where I can set-up shop and remain and not have to feel like a wandering nomad with no place to call home when it comes to my blogland.
I’ve been thinking about what I would like for my Furniture At Work™ and trying to decide on a style. I think I am a bit of a mix of old and new – I don’t like too much chintz but I love little bijou things too. Now, a desk with draws in would be handy as I tend to accumulate ALOT of bits and pieces, primarily due to my love of stationary and I’d be quite happy to either go really sleek and streamline or depending on the space available, all up-cycled bijou.
I’d love a year wall planner to write bits on as well as one of those washing lines with pegs to hang photographs on and perhaps a couple of custom blogger prints – I’ve seen so many on Instagram in blogger’s work-spaces that I have spent hours drooling over so a couple of those and maybe a plant that doesn’t die easily would be good too.
Okay, if we are going all out dreamland, I would like a big enough space so that opposite the window in the room I could have a hanging screen for backdrops for taking photographs for the blog – or even a really white wall! I know I know… I cannot choose a house to live in based on this but hey, I can dream can’t I???!
