Hi Folks! I'm back again. We've been away.
DD plus a grandson had come to stay and we had a hectic but great time. We took them back to Malaga airport last Tuesday (a 3 hour drive). While we were on the coast, we thought we'd visit a few large stores that we haven't got near us. (like Ikea and Leroy Merlin etc). Then went to see my sister near Marbella. They have just moved into a new apartment so I hadn't expected to stay, but she had the guest room ready and she insisted so we stayed and had a lovely time.
Now we have returned to the chaos that is our 'house'. You are waiting to see my desk.... here it is:
As you can see, there is nothing going on on my desk, but there is a bed in the office! Yes, our bedroom in the old cave house was getting really bad. The ceiling is un-rendered and we keep getting sand and earth flaking on the bed. It was getting so bad (and I got so fed up) that we made the decision to test drive the new bed-sofa that we bought (locally) last week:
It's now in the 'studio' and we are sleeping on it. (and very comfortable it is too).
We did spend quite a lot of money at Ikea (as you do) and I have finally bought the famous trolley! In fact my husband made me buy two! He reckons I would like it so much I would want another one and he wasn't going to drive several hundred miles to get it.
All the mess and the chaos has been getting to me a bit lately and I have been finding it difficult to give thanks. I have been taught to give thanks in every circumstance but that is difficult sometimes.
The other day I was sent this on Facebook:
That's put me in my place! I've made a similar list (adapted to my circumstances) and I've stopped moaning and I thank the Lord!
Thanks for visiting, and if you are wondering what all this desk watching is all about, visit Julia's blog and all will be revealed.
Have a good week,
