More preparations for the Return of Techie Son

Tomorrow is the big day, and there seems to be lots to do to get Techie Son's room almost back to normal. As I started moving my craft stuff from the craft room, I was already lamenting the loss of that wonderful workspace, and wondering how in blazes I was going to fit everything into my study.
However, I have now moved the desk you can just make out on the right of the photo to the family area near the kitchen, and Technie Son's huge table my craft table into my study. We'll have to see about getting another table soon, as this setup looks to be a winner!
Another change I've had to make in preparation for Return of TS is buying a new monitor (see above photo). The AC adaptor of my old one started burning up a few weeks back and I've been using TS's monitor in the interim. Has anyone else bought a monitor lately? They are no longer square, but are now wider than they are tall. Seems weird. (I just noticed that the monitor shows this post in mid-draft, also weird...)

I should have mentioned in the last post the name of the scrapbooking place Gina took me to. It's Simply Scrapbooking, details on their nicely designed website. Although it wasn't as huge as the one Miss Eagle and I visited a few weeks ago, it was large enough to be comfortable. Craft places here often seem to be so cramped, you're either bumping into shelving or other customers while browsing. I wish they had stores like Michael's in the U.S.: K-mart sized craft stores = heaven!

Great set up in the new craft room. So light and airy. I'm sure TS won't miss the table...

I bet you are excited about Techie Son coming home, even if you do lose your "craft room".
Hope our weekend is going well.
Take care, hugs, Meow

Hi Val, I like your nice bright outlook from your craft table, and how nice to have your son comming home.I never noticed the monitors not Square till you mentioned it mine looks like yours 17inch.
Btw, I Agree with you the footy wasnt a good match to watch.but at least you have had a few wins. Poor Tiger yet to win a game maybe next week.boohooo GO TIGERS!!!

Hi Val ~~ You will be happy to have your son home. Pity about the craft room though Guess you will work it out. The match on Friday night was
a terrible one, heart-breaking. I
know we can't win them all, but at least they should be competitive.
I hope they can make up for it in the next few weeks. I felt sorry for Pagan. Maybe next time!!!
Take care, Love, Merle.

Tell Techie son hi from all of us in the USA!

And if he were as nice as you say, he would volunteer to give you back the space and move his bed into the dining area! lol.

I knew you'd figure it out, and it looks like you've come up with a good solution. I love all the window space you have Val...nice bright, well-lit rooms.
I know you'll love having Techie Son home. Enjoy your reunion!
I like the new monitor shape, the way the flat screen takes up less space.
Michael's is a great store and we have a couple of other lovely big ones too, including Joanne's.
