The file cabinet, assembled and filled. I spent the whole of yesterday sorting through files, and shredding masses of crap. Electric bills from a house I no longer own. Credit card receipts from a bank that has been sold twice, changed the name once, and had all their data hacked so they had to issue everyone new cards. 14 year old checks and pay stubs. Christmas cards from strangers. (If you sign, "best wishes, J & T." don't be hurt if people don't remember who you are.) Then I went through the multiple copies of manuscripts that I have, saved one of each, and took the rest out to the garden. I have found that if you pull weeds and lay paper on the bare soil, about two inches deep, it makes the weeds feel unwelcome.
So one corner of my officce is shaping up quite nicely. Love the roll-top desk! Hides a multitude of sins.

Tease me all you wantg about my new offiicewerks. For most of my adult life I have made do with bricks and boards, and leftover, secondhand, Goodwill rejects because I am too cheap to get anything better. But DH wants me to have nice, and gee, nice is worth celebrating!
So, does anyone want a sturdy, ugly, 5 drawer metal filing cabinet? Low mileage - last owned by a little old lady who stored a lot of useless paper in it. All you have to do is come and pick it up.
