Tima begged to come in from the field yesterday so last night she had the barn corridors to sleep in. It rained all day yesterday. And was cold and blowey. (Is that a word?) And by dinner time she had had quite enough of her little tin shed which is very dry but probably quite noisy in the rain. I need to check the diary and see when she is allowed back in with Tane (the kunekune boar) but for last night they slept on either side of his gate in the barn.
So I thought we might have a photographic event. A challenge. Another ‘getting to know you’ The Fellowship Event. To cheer ourselves up until it gets warm. It will be called Where I write. Do you remember a few years ago when we all showed each other where we wrote or sewed or worked. Corners of lounges. Desks in home offices. The kitchen table. Your favourite chair. The train. Your desk at work. All kinds of lovely shots of where you work – it is fun to be able to see where a person is when they are writing to you.
(And of course you do Not HAVE to do this. It is just a wee bit of fun. No pressure at all. We are The Fellowship. We are gentle with each other always.)
So, if you want to join in and show us your work space, I propose that if you have a Blog or a Facebook page or even Twitter or Instagram; POST a shot of where you work with a link to my blog so we can come along and look. Even leave the link in my comments if you like just to be sure we get a chance to visit. You may even want to challenge your own readers to do the same. Just for fun.
If you do not have a platform and would like to join in send me an email and I can post your image on my blog.
My desk moves around the house, especially in Spring and this year it has migrated into the Store Room. My favourite chair has been abandoned to the winter and this is where I will write and have deep and meaningful discussions with my people for the summer. I have only just begun to fill this room.( This is a new area – I have taken over an under-used bedroom right next to the kitchen and put up shelves, next I am going to knock a hole through the wall of the existing teensy tiny pantry in my teensy tiny kitchen, so we have a butler style doorway joining the kitchen to the storeroom. Now I can see what I have and what I need and buy in bulk when there are sales. It is always cooler and all the produce from the gardens can be stored here. Much more suited to country living and the numbers we feed in the summer. It is filing up fast. And perfect for a cooks desk.)
I know you are thinking why not use the basement to store produce but I hate the basement it floods at the drop of a hat and anything stored down there goes mouldy. Best to keep goods up here in the dry.
So, what do you think? Do you want to show us where you write?
I am looking forward to this!
