It's not very elegant I know, but the IT side of my little empire is in the garage. In fact the pc has been in the garage for about 4 years now and, to be quite honest, I've had enough!
Its bad enough that I have to go upstairs to my office with a handful of printed invoices and artwork only to find I have to go back down because I've forgotten to check something. But I'd forgotten how flippin cold and draughty it is when the temperature drops.
Then, there's the rattling of the garage door as the wind whips round the drive and the harmonious sound of next door tuning their various cars and motorbikes as the fragrant choking fumes sneak stealthily under the Grand Canyon that is the gap below the door. Gosh, it sounds almost romantic!
So (and to be fair Himself said last year he would 'get someone in' to cable it up but I didn't want the fuss and the expense) with a fresh brew in my hand for Himself, strategically held out to him at an angle that would cause him more damage than me in the event of an over-reaction, I casually mentioned what a great help it would be to have the pc in the office!
Should've brought biscuits too!
Any hoo, nothing that couldn't be fixed with a smile and a kiss!
So, having sat here in the garage for nearly 12 hours (with breaks to get the washing outside, then in and 3 or 4 cups of tea of course) doing housekeeping on The Stroppy Cow and listing all the new stuff that came yesterday onto eBay, I am wrapped in 2 fleeces, socks and slippers and am dreaming of the time when I can sit in my cosy office looking out onto the garden...wonder if there's room for a kettle!
During surfing moments between auction listing I like to type in random colours names into Google images and see if anything pops up that may be a source of inspiration. Not much today in response to 'pink turquoise' except these adorable socks from Baby Me :
