The study is now downstairs and functioning. There’s still a bit of sorting through of the stuff in the cupboard and on the bookshelf in there and an awful lot of sorting through what’s been left behind in the old study to do, but we’ll get through that eventually.
Before we could begin moving desks we needed to clear a path so we could take them through the garage to the back yard, back in through the rumpus room and along the downstairs hallway to the study. This was not a trivial exercise and we didn’t really deal with the clutter so much as move it around.
I really wish I had after photos of all those areas showing off a complete absence of clutter but hey, it turns out we’re only human.
The garage looks pretty much the same because we just shifted stuff out of the way and then put it back again.
The rumpus room doesn’t look much better either and what’s worse, my bedroom now looks like this:
The downstairs hallway has accumulated a slightly different collection of clutter, including the almost empty wine rack which we decided wasn’t going to fit in the study after all.
After doing all that I decided that seeing I was on a roll I’d do something I’d been planning on for a while. I got Adam to help me dismantle the top bunk in David’s room so he could actually sit up in bed to read and I wouldn’t hit my head every time I tried to kiss him goodnight (it was a very low bunk).
Now all that remains to do for the evening is finish watching Jaynestown, drink the rest of that glass of muscat sitting on the coffee table and then unearth my bed so I can get into it!
