Over the past week I’ve lifted everything that was in the GrimmLoft (my work space, but also our storage space) down into the spare room and back up again to have the space insulated. Today I finished getting everything set up again, and it’s much tidier and more spacious because I’ve gotten rid of a bunch of shit and stored some things better - things which I told myself I’d get round to “real soon now” for about 4 years.

It’s been kinda emotional and cathartic. It’s all part of forgiving myself for not being able to do everything at once, and to value my life and works as a process rather than an end goal. I’m very excited to use the space this week.


I feel like my life is constantly unpicking beliefs about myself that I built up slowly by mistake without realising.
