Finally posting pictures of my Christmas present from Dom, a new computer desk (so I no longer have to balance my laptop precariously on the arm of the couch when it’s not in use).
I actually do have a desk. Or did when we got married, Dom’s using it now. It was mostly a stuff repository, a place to pile papers and books and glasses and who knows what else. But even then I tended to use my laptop while sitting on my bed or on the couch. These days I’m usually in the rocker/recliner with a blanket on my lap and a glass perched on the arm of the futon next to me. Books I might need are piled on the couch or the futon.
I expect the computer desk will really come in handy when I’m back to doing the one-handed web-surfing and blog writing while newborn Sophie is latched on, cradled in the other arm. I think it’s a great improvement over the tv tray I was using with Bella. It’s got wheels and it tilts nicely
