In between eating unconscionable quantities of cheese and Christmas cake, washed down with lashings of Yuleade and gin, I've been doing some gentle planning for the next few months.
I've bought myself a new little notebook for ideas and the like, and am quietly looking forward to getting back to work and putting some of my plans/ideas into practice.
Small Dog opined that I should get one of these....
.... but I brushed off her sarcastic slander.
To be fair, I couldn't get back to work even if I wanted to, as the workroom is currently piled high with all the detritus of the festive season, as well as acting as a de facto laundry room because all of our spare bedrooms have been in constant use for the duration. I'm itching to get in there and re-establish it as a proper workspace again, which will give me the opportunity to have a bit of a re-organise. *ahem*
For my new venture I've decided that I really need a new little table to replace the utilitarian and unlovely folding camping table which has been acting as additional workspace since I upcycled my lovely bureau cabinet last summer. I've been looking out for a second hand table for a while, but nothing suitable has come up.
However I'm really rather taken with this....
There are lots of reasons to love it, apart from the fact it's cheap. The two drop down sides mean that I can have THREE different sizes of work surface and when it's not in use it has a small, dainty footprint. It has pretty turned legs and a handy foot rest. It even has a very useful little drawer (although I'll replace that basic black knob with something much nicer).
It will look much more in keeping with the style of the room and I will then have a dedicated workspace looking out through the front windows.
I love it when a plan comes together......
