Summer To Do List & Desk Inspiration

So, there's just one more week of the Summer Holidays left.  We havent been away on holiday anywhere but we have had some excellent days out and we have managed to tick off almost all of our to do list which is a first I think!

There have been so many half finished jobs around our house, but it feels like we are finally getting to the bottom of these months list.  Of course there are always a million more things to get on with, but let's say we've made a good start. As I mentioned earlier in the week we finally spruced up the front garden with some paint, plants and gravel and today we fixed some bookshelf doors which we have had lying around for months as we were missing the screws.  However, after 3 trips to Ikea to get the right ones they are now in situ.

The next thing that isn't actually on the to do list is to find me a new desk area.  I was happy to be holed up in a small corner of our bedroom.  I was hoping a few bookshelves and a nice stool would be a good area to really get my business ideas in motion.  However, Neil doesn't think that will work in the long run as he thinks I need a bit more space.  He has suggested I take over a little area in the living room which would hopefully give me a bigger space and would also be more accessible in the day time whilst I look after Nye.  So, with that in mind I've been scouting around for possible ideas. So without further ado feast your eyes on the crafty beauty of work spaces below!

I think that's enough food for thought.  What I go for pretty much depends on what type of cupboard I manage to track down.  I'd like something neat and tidy and if I can't find anything that would allow me to get  a desk I might just go for something like this fold up desk below which is nice and wide.
