Well, it’s been a few weeks since I last posted but hopefully I will be back to posting at least once a week as I am mostly settled into our new place. My desk is now mostly organised, but is still slightly messy from setting up, though I have space to work now so I can get started tonight. I’ll post some photos of it again when it is all sorted as it is a really nice space. There is now also a second desk for my laptop and printer so that I don’t have to shuffle beadwork to write my posts and do other computer work. And both my display cases are also in with room for another one in the future.
It has been crazy busy and, the rain put a kink in our moving plans but, we got there in the end and, all the furniture has found its place. I’ve separated my designs from patterns I’ve brought from other designers and they are in the two larger display cases with my small case now on top of the wooden case, housing the work I have made from other designers. It will help me keep a track of things with my exhibition coming up in October . I’d love do an exhibition showing off the amazing designs of other designers but that would take a lot of planning so it will have to wait.
The day of the move (second go) it was raining, but thankfully it mostly stopped and the movers managed to get everything in with only a few short breaks to wait for the rain to calm down. And of course the next day it was sunny as. Murphy’s law. Mum was at work so I went to Mike’s place and supervised the moving of her things before getting my larger stuff from Kea’s and going to the new place. And as I did not take work off I also had to go to work. The Cats moved in Friday night and Joan’s stuff arrived on Saturday so we had more organising todo. Joan, Ziggy and the fish also moved in on Saturday.
13 (My cat) was a bit house shy at first but she settled in a lot quicker than Andy (Joan’s cat). And I did have an opportunity to get a photo of Andy on Friday night and Saturday morning and missed it! Now you might never know what he looks like. One of my other aunts thought he was actually an imaginary cat as he is that good at hiding.
Ziggy Zoom Zoom has taken to the new house and the big backyard, though he is a scaredy-cat and won’t go out by himself, he is also convinced that the doggy door will eat him, and will not go near it. 13 was fine as soon as I held my hand through.
I’ve been having breakfast or brunch outside with Ziggy, instead of eating at my desk, which makes a nice change and is healthier.
Hum I can’t think of anything else to say about the move so I might leave it at that.
I will also write a post about my current WIP today and then I will actually get some beading done before work.
all the best Lou.
