Sorry for screaming but just had to get that out of my system.

Tonight has not been a good night. For those of you who don't know I am disabled, and for those who know I am disabled I have a make up addiction. I have a very small space to store my collection and recently decided to get rid of the old clumpy computer table and filing cabinet and get something practical.

I purchased some Alex drawers from Ikea and a Micke desk and set about organising myself.

 This has/is a sloooooooow painful process as I have to be feeling sort of ok which isn't everyday. Then when I do I can't do too much. In between I have put my back out...............well you get the picture.

Tonight I took a mad fit to move some more stuff and opened my Alex. Inside the drawers was black on the sides and backs of the drawers to say I was annoyed is an understatement. We have a mould problem in this house and have a de-humidifier in the bedroom collecting 2 litres a day!! I was gutted thinking it was mould but we think it is dust the unit is blowing out!!

Soooooooo me sat on a stool and a packet of baby wipes set to cleaning all the drawers and the vent and filter on the de-humidifier. Fingers crossed setting the vent to swing instead of being fixed may help the problem. So as I cleaned I got more things into the drawers off the table.

Then came annoyance number 2 on the desk that I haven't even sat at yet has two bloody scratches and all you can see is brown (it is a white table) bangs head on wall. I am so pissed off it isn't even funny. I was so looking forward to finally getting to sit at the desk and paint my nails, or maybe put some make up on, which I haven't been able to do for years as everything is in tubs all over the place. I could have cried.

I tried a BarryM white polish but it isn't very opaque and it needed so much to cover that there was a visible lump. I am hoping that tippex may do it keep your fingers crossed. I know I will more than likely have a towel covering it when I am doing anything anyway but it is just so damn annoying to have something ruined before you have even had the chance to use it.

It may still be months (and the rest) before I actually get to sit down and play with my things so hopefully the brainfog will make me forget it ever happened LOL. 

See ya next time
