A tidy study with a new desk
Since moving here in 2004 my little study has slowly been accumulating more and more stuff. The time had arrived for a good sort out. At the same time I wanted to try to add another small desk. The main desk is dedicated to my iMac, a MacBook, a second screen and a scanner, leaving me no desk space upon which to do written work. The dining room table had thus become a second work station. In January I found an ideal small desk at Made.com, who quoted an extremely long delivery, namely March. This, however, wasn't an issue, as it gave me ample time to sort out the study, which wasn't a bad thing as it turned out.
The desk arrived this week and I must say that it was worth the wait. It's constructed from solid oak; not a bit of veneer or particle board to be seen. I could hardly lift the box when it arrived, resorting to 'walking it' from the hall into the kitchen/diner. Fortunately the removable drawer and desktop lightened the load somewhat when it came to fitting the four legs, the only self-assembly required; each requiring just two engineering screws.
I am now feeling very organised after having been in a state of literally falling over things before I started. It's a good feeling. Now I need only to keep things this way!
