Sit there for the present

I loved that story in Cider with Rosie when Laurie Lee is instructed to sit at a particular desk on his first day at school. "Sit there for the present," he is told. He waits all day for the promised gift that never arrives!

Well, right now I am sitting pretty in my new home - a little present to myself.

This weekend we converted the spare bedroom/box room/junk store into my new office. No more will I be working in the kitchen and having to pack everything away every time we want to sit at the table to eat a meal. I am Queen of all I survey. As my business grows, so does the accumulation of paperwork, notes and mind-mapping exercises!

Of course, I would have loved for this to be art studio too; but space constraints meant I had to choose one or the other and so the activity that will one day fund a move to a bigger house (with room for an art studio) nabbed the space. I do have some of my art on the wall though!

I'm decidedly pleased with my present. Who knows what the imagination will conjure up in here!

Somewhat fortuitously, Sunday's Scribble theme today is 'present'. Just perfect!

Picture is a bit rubbish, but you get the idea (and the size!)


  1. Yeah for you Lisa!!! This will make your new ventures so much easier to focus on!

    Congrats on your new space and fingers crossed on that home (soon) that will provide you with your Art Studio space as well!


  2. A wonderful "present". You deserve it! It's a fact of life that the money-maker wins out. But from that will come the art studio, I'm sure of it!

  3. A wonderful place for creatively to flourish and a perfect PRESENT! POP ART MINIS

  4. It looks like you have a good present and a bright future!

  5. congratulations on your new home! and a new space just for you to be present and explore whatever wants to be expressed. Awesome.

  6. Yay! Good for you. Enjoy your present ;).
    Stay inspired!

  7. Yippe - a space all to yourself - for dreaming, creating and work.

  8. Congratulations on your new office space. Best wishes!

  9. Here is the best part....NATURAL LIGHT!!! That window brings a lot of it in! Enjoy your new space!

  10. Let the money start rollin in! No one deserves it more!

  11. Lovely clear bright space - ready for some clear bright ideas - mmm could be why I'm muddle headed these days.

  12. Congratulations on your new space! Hooray!

    I am loving your latest paintings too :) I always love your layers! (And of course I love when you incorporate "dodgy puns" into your posts!)


    p.s. I am so glad to know that I'm not the only one who enjoys "Trashy tv"! ha!


Thank you for your comments - I always love to hear what you think :)
