My new work space...the story so far

Hi, all. Yesterday I was a very naughty girl. I went to Staples to buy a new desk chair and came out with a new all-in-one PC as well! Oops. Oh, and a new wireless printer . Oh and 4 boxes of ink. That'll teach Hubby to make less than savoury remarks on Facebook about my digestive system!

At this point I'd like to stop and thank my little brother for coming to my defence...aww he does love me, really.

Here's Matthew with his lovely partner, Kerry (somewhere impressive, by the looks of it)


Let's get together again, soon, guys

Anyway, back to the PC...

Mark (wonderful Hubby, kiss, kiss) has decided, after 23 years of living with me, that he cannot stand my mess any longer. He has tried really hard - I'd have blown a gasket a long time ago, I mean the place really IS untidy.

Here's a little taster of the currently shared study AFTER I have started tidying up!

Believe me, this is the study on a good day! Just look at my work room...

But, I've been clearing it up for weeks and weeks and when we bought Christian a new computer for his birthday (with the help of my wonderful Auntie Maureen) I thought I might be able to use that for my work.

So,when shopping for a chair yesterday, I heard a little voice in my ear telling me that the old PC won't start, won't stop, won't play music right, won't keep going, freezes, etc., you get the picture? No, it wasn't my inner voice, it was my daughter, Joanna!

Anyway, she prevailed and I came away with this lovely PC - something I'd never even heard of. All the workings are in the monitor and everything else is wireless. Theoretically, I can get Freeview, but I can't (not bothered), but the biggest fun is that it is touch screen - cool, or what?

I'm still tidying and sorting the new registered office of The Little Bead Box (The Dressing Room, off the Bedroom, 2 Eccles Close etc.), but look at the difference - I need a medal. Mark says he'll pay ANYTHING and DO anything to get me out of the study - YAH

Look, you can see the desk!!!!!  AND a bit of floor...

Fab, or what?

See you later, people.




  1. You need a HUGE medal and many congratulatory choccies. Looks fantabulous Liz and what a swish new PC!

  2. Jealous much! I have a whole studio out the backgarden, but it doesn't have a 'puter in it! I'm thinking of getting a DAB radio though!

  3. Hey, I went and bought a DAB radio - thought I'd move into the 21sy century - no signal in Whaley Bridge! So much for progress.

  4. Oh, forgot to say that I actually made jewellery in that workroom as it was. I'm terrible.

  5. Gemma, I think it's doe to the many congratualtory choccies that the weight loss counter still says 0.

  6. A messy desk is a sign of a creative mind :-) But I can definitely see a bit of floor in the last photos. How long will that last, do you think? It never lasts long here.

    Enjoy your flash new computer.

  7. Oooh, wow, I'm so jealous. The PC looks fab (wonder if I can do a part-ex for my REALLY slow laptop?).

    Green with envy over your workspace too. I've had to completely clear my clutter away as we're trying to sell the house. Sick of looking for boxes of stuff in mum's garage. Want my workspace back!!

  8. Can I borrow your hubby, please?!

  9. Wow! I'm both jealous and impressed & I love the colour of that desk lamp too!

    Nothing beats a brand new shiny computer (as long as it works)
