It's time for the Express Yourself Weekly Meme! Thanks again to Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests for hosting this!
This week the task is simple. Post a picture of your work area and explain what you do there. Since I am currently a stay-at-home mother and writer, my work area is my home. Now, it isn't anything fancy, but it's where I live my life.
This is a picture of the couch where I spend a good portion of my time writing. While I really do need a desk, I write around the chaos of my children and we have limited space as it is, so this is what I use for the time being. Hey, whatever works, right? And don't mind the broken lamp. It still lights, but it leans at a funny angle due to the antics of my children. In a home filled with young ones, things often take a beating.
And here's a close-up picture of my little notebook that I use for taking notes, and my laptop. It's slightly broken as you can see from the bit sticking out the back, but I can't fault it for the fact that it still works. It's also one of the broken things in the house that had nothing to do with the kids!
These are the tools that I use to create things, so no matter their state of disrepair, I'm happy to have them.
