Just in case I needed another surface in the room to accumulate all the stuff I can’t be bothered putting away, I went to the Salvos (Sallies) on the weekend and picked up a table (bargain, $40.00) to convert into a bit of office space.
This is ostensibly so I can make room to concentrate on work and study…. otherwise I’m usually trying to study from the bed, where the temptation to read novels, or just plain sleep takes over, or in front of the tv where I miss half the show because I was concentrating on work, or miss half the work because my attention was diverted to CSI or whatever crime time drama is on the box…
So Saturday I picked up the bargain table… and Sunday we went to Ike(a)’s to see what kind of office bargains we could get… (but mostly for the $3.75 (for 100) tea lights, we’d run out of those…).
Basically, I spent $100 this weekend and now am in a much better place to work from home.
Which is a good thing given that, come May 1st, I am dropping a day a week from work…
Oh Dee, you’re so clever, with the slide show thingie. It is really beautiful. And how do you “write” the labels on your photos like that?
*turning pale shade of envious green*
And nice new office!
Ah, good old Ikea, please come to NZ. I miss you and your huge bags of tealights…
Fi… bugger, if I’d known I’d have asked you if there was any Ikea stuff you needed (barring a sofa or anything)…
Antipo: I have the happy situation of having Photoshop… It’s crack for photographers… too much fun stuff to do in it..
However, you should be able to add text to your image in Microsoft Paint (if it will let you add text with a transparent background) and then save it as a jpg or gif…
But that won’t do the animating. For that you’d need Ulead gif animator or some other animation programme… Or Photoshop or Photoshop elements (much cheaper than PS and still V good…
I like the new lamp. Ikea is great but when I asked them the location nearest to me (upstate New York) they suggested southern Connecticut (where I moved from couple of years ago) and somewhere in Pennsylvania and mailed me a catalog.
Very, very nice!
I knew those magazine box thingies were Ikea as soon as I saw them! I have two sets! They’re a bit of a bugger to assemble though…
PS nice office !
