It takes me a while to get back to normal after my family leave.
I like to sit around wallowing for a couple of days.
I also like to give up cooking, stop going to the grocery store and stay in bed for a little longer.
O.K. so I always stay in bed for a little longer, but now I have a reason to.
My brain stops thinking about anything much and my head becomes a dull vacuous cave with barely enough sunlight for even the dust motes to play in.
But I have got a great new studio to get back to.
When K was here we found a small backwoods furniture shop called IKEA and bought me some new stuff :)
It was a great opportunity to get this done as my sister was able to lift all the heavy stuff while I directed.
She didn’t complain once about her RA, but I did have a sore finger and couldn’t quite manage.
Actually we found a nice man who put everything into the back of the car before I could turn around to help him.
If only he’d waited.
Now I have drawers.
And super solid work surfaces instead of the jumble of old tables I used to have.
I still have my old table that I do most of the work on because the new ones were too long for the space, but I put a plank on two of my little drawer things and now I have a shelf and even more drawers to keep my bezel wire, silver plate and the small useful things which clutter the table when they’re not being small and useful.
I’ve still got more putting away to do, but to be honest, without K here I’ll probably try hard to ignore it, but ain’t it great :)
Just wait until I show you my bead drawers!
