It’s a bit of a contrast to last week’s ‘pristine’ desk, as one commenter referred to it.
For one thing there is definitely not one ray of sunshine, just damp grey mizzle and my work space has filled up considerably since then. I’ve been assembling bits and pieces to try out the first ‘lab’ in my new book. I don’t have any heavy watercolour paper and wanted to make do with what I do have. I’m recycling the cardboard packaging the book came in instead. I think it will work just fine.
Visiting Alexa’s blog this morning reminded me of learning The King’s Breakfast by AA Milne when I was at primary school. The dark blue book on the left is a copy of When We Were Very Young, which has the poem in. I still remember it almost word for word, especially the part of the dairymaid, which I played. Happy days.
In the middle is my daughter’s latest drawing. She often settles herself at my desk, when I’m busy elsewhere (even though she has a perfectly good one of her own) and I don’t mind sharing. On the right, the remains of my ‘little something’ for elevenses.
If you’re not yet familiar with this sharing of desks, from all around the world, on a Wednesday, then get yourself over to Julia’s place to see what it’s all about.
PS The bag is not abandoned, but a work in progress for now.
