This is what my desk looks like:
Scary, hey? That little space in the middle towards the front is where I work. So that is what prompted my new acquisition. A school desk!
I must state that I am not one of those people who think back longingly to their school days, nostalgic tears trickling down their cheeks. Although I did very well academically - usually top of the class - I hated school. Let's face it, I was considered a nerd. Never popular. Always on the outside looking in. So the immediate affection - even love - I felt when my eyes first fell on this desk was rather weird, if not suspect. But consider this - a lid that lifts to reveal a lovely space for storing notes, pens, books and so on; a little groove for my pen and pencil; a seat that lifts, the perfect back rest, the solidness of it. I mostly use it for working on my laptop. The strange thing is that I did not go out and look for something that would solve my untidy-desk-with-5x5-inch-space-for-working problem. No, I just walked past a junk shop and saw this lovingly restored desk, and then only did I realise that I needed to solve the untidy-desk-with-5x5-inch-space-for-working problem. I didn't even realise I had a problem until I saw my school desk. So I do not really know how to classify this one ...
Have a great weekend, every one. School's out!!!!!
