Forever ago, my blogging buddy Cecilia over at The Kitchens Garden did a post about where she writes and blogs from; well, her post was more about moving from her summer writing spot to her winter spot.
My little place where I write from used to be our en-suite bedroom before we built on. It, I guess, represents my having to have everything all neat and tidy while being very practical.
Even though the picture above doesn’t evoke a very romantic setting for blogging, I am surrounded by all my lovely and fun things. The drawers on the left of the shot are from my MIL, which house some of my stationery, labels, envelopes, telephone directories, computer and camera cables, chargers and the like while perched on top is the book stand inherited from my FIL with all my wordy books – dictionaries, Thesaurus, crossword dictionary and a tweetalige woordeboek. The filing cabinet is pretty self explanatory while above it sits the scanner, copier, fax, printer. Oops, forgot to take the pressie for the baby shower I was telling you about off the visitors chair before taking the photo.
To the right of my desk is a set of built in cupboards that house all of my gift wrapping supplies and ribbons, handbags, sewing machine and material, art supplies, more stationary and my knitting and crochet supplies, patterns and wool. This is probably my most favourite cupboard. 🙂
To the right of theses cupboards is the bathroom and if you keep going right, you will get to the bookshelf which Pete built and has just de cluttered and another set of built in cupboards which house office supplies and printing paper, MORE stationary (different things go in different places you see), board games, my wedding gown, Pete’s wetsuits, the fly tying kit, Pete’s lego, train set and meccano set from when he was a little boy plus all sorts of other bits and bobs and important things.
So there you have it, my daily place of where I sit and write and have been known on occasion to get creative.
So where is it that you write from?
