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.

My computer is currently off being repaired so I had to steal myself some time on E's computer while she was at work and mess around with some pictures -- yes! More Thailand pictures!

Lonely Beach. Most of the beach is sandy but this end is where all the various debris from the sea gather. We experienced some very windy days where all kinds of neat stuff had washed up on the beach (and lots of not so neat stuff; plastic bottles, etc.) And yes, that's me down in the corner.

More photos of Thailand. )

Ahh... Yes... Back in May I had a crisis of cannot-deal-with-people-at-all!-dimensions and part of that was deleting nearly everyone from my friendlist here indiscriminately in a futile attempt to start anew and get blogging again when really it was me sharing anything with anyone that was the problem (the attempt failed before I'd even made one post) which is why some of you might have noticed I have been adding you back. It wasn't anything personal but it does make for a rather awkward situation now... So... Uhm... Yeah. Sorry for deleting you.
