I have got a room which is very exiting. All I've had for years in an alcove and whenever I'd need it I had to inform people that "my imaginary door is currently closed, thank you". Headphones usually meant Do Not Disturb. But while I was away in Thailand there was a bit of moving things around and what used to be the dining corner now has four walls - and a door! Which closes! The rooms isn't quite four square meters but there's room for my bed and dresser and (I hope) all my stuff.

A room! My TV is on a shelf at the foot end of my bed. There's going to be a shelf on the left wall and a small shelf above the head of my bed, for books. I think. I'm thinking a lot about the shelves. I need shelves. They need to be big enough to hold my stuff but I don't want it to become too crowded. I have walls. Bare walls! The only bare walls in the entire house; I don't want to ruin it! I seem to be carrying around a tape measure at all times at the moment.

Today I put up a rack for my clothes and sorted through all my clothes (which took about ten times as long as putting up the rack).

I went to town a few days ago and got the hangers. They are a bit too wide for my clothes but they were there and they were cheap and I needed hangers. I will surely be on the lookout for some smaller ones - and perhaps less colourful! It's only two months since I went through my clothes last time, four weeks of which I wasn't even home. How can it accumulate so? I didn't buy that much in Thailand!

I got storage boxes for under the bed, too. Containing shoes, bags and belts, and my yarn (most of my yarn; the lid wont really close as it is. I had to make a "current projects" pile in a basket to make room for it, and I threw lots and lots away...) There's room for one more box but that spot is currently being taken up by a cat carrier the kittens like to sleep in. There is also a cat door under the bed - it was already there so why move it? I can close it if I don't want to be bothered by cats...

Bothered by cats - hah!

Awww!

Awww awww!

These two are leaving tomorrow. :( But the girl (bottom) is going to my sister, Loe, and the boy to some of her friends. So :D.

It's very small and I wouldn't personally go with all the wood, but it's very nice to have my own little space!

(Of course I remember you! I'm sorry I vanished all of a sudden.)

Wow, your own space, that is a huge deal. Nice! And it has an orchid in it! I can't really tell if that window goes to an outside or inside area, but it's nice to have a window either way :)

I kinda like the pink hangers! I didn't know they existed in different sizes ... I always just buy the (giant man) standard size.

KITTENS! :D

Having my own space is great. The door and window are currently open almost all the time to allow the kittens to come in and out. And yes, the window leads outside, just the side of the deck.

Hangers come in all different sizes. It's good to have hangers the width of your shoulders for your clothes so as to avoid the fabric stretching or getting funny shaped in the shoulder area. Well, so it fits you! Consider the hanger a sort of stand-in for you.. Of course I have a lot of dresses just with straps and with those it doesn't make a difference.

This is too exciting! I shared a room for a long time, so getting my own (at age 29 no less!) was a big deal! Congrats and I hope you enjoy fixing it up. That's always my favorite part of moving, or getting a new space - decorating!
