Nathalie and others are showing their desktops once a month on the 15th, and I am joining them this month. My laptop's desktop is pretty boring, so I thought I would show my real desktop instead. In case you are wondering, it is a little neater than usual as I haven't started working yet.

In the foreground you see my desk lamp, a dictionary (the others are all on the floor, six of them), two sets of notes I am adapting, my reading glasses, scrap paper with doodles for a possible exercise, the two boxes L'Usband built for my laptops - to position them at the right height so as to minimise the neck-and headaches I get from working (these have now disappeared, but as you have probably guessed, have been replaced by wrist aches), a little book I use to make lists each week on top of a magazine that I still want to read, two of my business cards, one of my laptops (showing Nathalie's desktop!), in the background my cell phone blinking on top of a pile of notes and reference material. On the left of the picture (and the back of my desk) various bottles and jars with pens and pencils and markers and stuff. More stuff hanging from the bookshelf above the desk to remind me of other stuff ..

I think you get the picture.

Several crocodiles escaped recently on the N1 (One of our National Highways) - some have been found, but at least one is still missing.

I think I know where it is hiding!

ha ha! reading your post, i thought "l'usband seems to be a real nice guy making those boxes for la wife". Now I'm thinking that he is pretty funny too!

It's nice to see you desktop. i can feel the hard work being done here.

My own desktop is essentially organised with a dash of chaos around the edges, and I really like this desktop reveal idea of Nathalie's.
