No post yesterday as there was a lot going on here...

I've asked Carlo a couple of times recently about extending my desk for me - because I simply have no room. Now bear in mind this is the man who wanted to make the desk room length when he set it up, and I wouldn't hear of it, no way accepting that I'm a shocking hoarder and that my desk would soon have no room to even make a card - never mind a 12 x 12 layout. Anyway long story short, way back then, he rounded the edge of and put it up as I asked. Fortunately for me - he is a bit of a hoarder himself - so when I started whining for more space he remembered that he still had the wood he'd used, and yesterday cut the piece to fit our area and lengthened my scrap space by about 3 feet x 2.5 feet.. bliss! I can see the table!! yay! I was doing the happy dance big time!

The downside to all this glee however, is that he accidently left a large headed screw on the carpet... and when I kneeled down to attach the lil wooden spice racks which are going to house all my paints... I plonked my (not inconsiderable bulk) right down on it.... Ouch Ouch Ouch!!! I was on my knees, with a very gluey spice rack in my hands, so couldn't even fling my arms out to get up off of it.. oh the pain.. you ever do something like that?... Jeez... it CANES!

Seriously guys, I can't describe the pain. I mean it's laughable really. The excruciating agony i've been in is totally out of all proprtion to what I actually did! I kneeled on a screw... FFS - no one cut my leg off! Yet last night I couldn't sleep... every small movement I made caused me to yelp... My knee's really puffy, and swollen and bruised... I cannot bend it to get in the car. I swear it's that bad.


Some of my paints in their new home!
So I now have a scrap room with a fab huge desk... but the floors thigh high in stash as I'd already starting transferring everything to the new plastic sorage drawers when calamity struck.. and now I'm disabled and can't do a thing!

How me... I mean really... how very bloody me...


Now - Anyone want to help me sort this lot out??

Please...?? Pretty please???

Ouchy, hope your knee is better today.

My little bolt hole looks like that and I can't pluck up the courage to go in there.

Love the paint holders and a bigger desk sounds fab.

Happy Tuesday xxx
