|Before - not messy, but in no order.|
I am just more than a month into my 29th year, and I have managed to cross one thing of my 30 before 30, and am sort of managing to upkeep a few continuing ones!
|During - about the point where I thought 'well, this was a stupid idea'.|
If you have a look on my page for it, you'll see that one shiny item, number 22, is marked in red. My book shelves and book piles, are organise into hardback and paperbacks, The paperbacks are organised alphabetically and by genre. The hardback are just alphabetical, as there aren't enough to do otherwise. I have a Christmas book shelf (I collect them) and a kid's book shelf. I am very pleased. I am trying hard not to be bothered that books with the same design aren't grouped together. I also found there are a few books (classics) that I have more than one copy off, so the spares I think will go into the Guardian Book Swap.
|Christmas books! (and shoes)|
|After... some of the hardbacks|
|After... top - non-fic hardbacks, middle - kids|
|Uber after... top - classics, 2nd -poetry, modern classics, crime|
3rd, more crime, contemporary fiction
bottom - non-fic ( history, musci science), alcohol
side - chick lit.
I also did my cook books, which live under our coffee table and are rather wedged into the space. This was done in the evening of the day I made the cookies (in previous post), it was cold and windy and wet outside, so a good day for organising. I maybe shouldn't have started at 7pm though.
Today is a similar sort of day, but has have little of this industriousness. Yesterday was a long day, after a night out (to see Great Cynics. who are BRILLIANT), a day made longer by our last bus back being almost two hours late (it was stuck behind a motorway accident), meaning we got home to Dundee at 3am. So today has been some tidying, lots of radio and a lot of sitting on the sofa, blog and cookbook reading, and now, patiently waiting for our very autumnal dinner of roast lamb and root vegetables to be ready. I hope everyone had a good weekend?
The quality of these photos is awful. It is VERY hard to take good photos in autumn, inside, in the evening with a camera phone. Also, I have no idea why the last two photos have two borders. I'm just going to leave them there.
