|The new look TIDY studio|
I promise this will be my last post about tidying my studio because.... IT’S FINISHED!!!! Okay, you still can’t access the shower in the spare bedroom, but no-one needs to for another three weeks, so that’s fine.

I am writing this at one of my lovely new desks, sitting on a very comfortable new swivel seat, surrounded by all my things, which are in all the right places, apart from what is currently being used. I am definitely having that post tidy up problem of not being able to find anything as I reorganised where most things went, but at least I had the foresight to stick ugly labels besides everything to remind myself.

Tidying and cleaning are not talents I’ve ever shone at and having reached the ripe old age of 40+something, I have decided to live with it rather than get upset at the mess and my inability to deal with it. But... having got it this tidy and with teaching from my home, I’m looking forward to the minimum standard of tidiness and cleanliness being significantly higher than over the last five years. Fingers crossed anyway.

One delight of tidying up (and it has been this way for me, ever since my teens), is rediscovering lost books, or even, books I had forgotten I even owned. This time was no exception and I was thrilled to see these two resurface.

Right. Tidying - done. Notes written for first class on Friday – done. Time to get back to the fun stuff of creating!
