Despite my enthusiasm to embrace minimalism and enjoy a simpler existence in this 'residential transition period' in my life (actually I just asked myself when am I NOT in a 'residential transition period'?) one sometimes has to draw a line in the sand... and go rummaging for 'yearned-for' belongings.
I have been in denial, that the majority of our belongings can stay neatly bubble wrapped in storage until we're on the move again... I mean life is simpler with 4 plates, 4 cups...a la ships galley kitchen style.... but when you start muttering, "my kingdom for a damn rolling pin", you realise... maybe I am living a little bit too lean, maybe I have taken this 'life in storage' a bit too far. Life isn't the destination is it, it's the journey... and on this journey, I decided last week, I sorta need my desk.
I did a bit of rearranging in the main bedroom, hauled my desk, chair and other paraphernalia out of the storage shed (giving the whole shed a big tidy on the side as well... never miss an opportunity to 'sort and chuck' I say) and set up my 'spot'. Ta da... it's a bit lean, and not too much thought was put into 'staging'....nothing on the walls (good excuse for a neat and tidy inspiration board).. but I now have 'a spot'. Good things are going to happen in this 'spot'.... let me tell you!
