BEDN 14 – Workspace

Day 14 – Share some photos of your workspace, whether it’s your office at home or work.

Ever since Rob was made redundant 7 years ago, he has been self employed and mostly works from home. So our large second bedroom is a dedicated home office (come man cave).

Two years ago I started helping him out with the admin and accounts. But the room is still considered to be his and his alone. I have made a tiny mark with my tidier side of the desk and a kitten calendar, but thats all.

We are very different people. I like everything to have its place and to be carefully curated, he likes a lot of clutter. I try not to hoard, he starts a new collection of random stuff monthly (or so it feels like!) I like things organised, he files stuff where he drops it. I have regular sort outs, he holds onto stuff forever.

The joys of cohabiting eh!

As the room is currently a mess, I took photos of the smaller details and little corners of the room. One day I will do a full tour of the office on here, when its less dusty and much tidier!

Its funny, the pictures below show a glimpse inside Robs mind. I talk about him a lot on here, but the photos I took today will give you a much better understanding of him!

He is in his late thirties and a basically big kid who likes toys. So hence the collections of vinyl toys, VW’s, cameras, action figures and guitars.

Oh yeah, and he is also a whizz at coding the www and a graphic designer who runs a successful business.

I have just noticed that magazine file needs pushing back! More books, a corner of his acoustic guitar and a painting by a pal of ours.

And finally, here is why I am not ready to do the full tour. Arrrgh look at the mess! And this is on a relatively tidy day!

I have blocked out a small identifiable detail BTW

  1. These are such great pictures! I get a real sense of your workspace from them, it looks very geek-chic.
