I’ve been blogging for three years now, and until a couple of weeks ago I didn’t have a proper place to write. We have a desk in the guest room, but as we’ve only renovated our ground floor, I don’t like to be upstairs for too long (rest-of-house renovations should be happening in the next few months!!). So I have been writing on my laptop – on the sofa or at the dining table, which often isn’t that comfortable. And obviously it isn’t great, ergonomically-speaking. So I was beyond excited when my new desk arrived from Kit Out My Office.
First, I shuffled the living room around (I do this a few times a year anyway, to Husband’s dismay) to make room for the desk. Then I kindly left the box that the desk arrived in for Husband to find. I am such a considerate wife, I know. Anyway, Husband put the desk together quite easily and I had an office space in less than an hour.
So, this is where I write. Voila!
I am a clutter queen but my desk is staying quite minimalist. I have a plant, my laptop and a copper letter holder. I also have my Blogger’s Journal handy to keep me organised. I have instructed my children never to place anything on my desk, and they mostly have kept to this though I have found a joke book and a Spiderman hanging out. I have borrowed one of the dining table chairs but I am on the lookout for one of those kneely chairs that are supposed to be better for your back.
I am loving my new desk. The white, glossy colour looks modern and fresh. I have a drawer that allows me secret clutter (I will never show you what is inside, NEVER). I finally have a place to write!
I was given the choice of a desk for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
