So to be able to write a blog, I thought I would need a nice area to be able sit and type away. Being that Dan has taken our spare room for his ‘office’, now that he works from home, I have taken a corner of our bedroom for my own.
It’s next to my bed (great if I end up writing late into the night), which is just a hop, skip and a jump away (though if I did really do that I would end up out the window!). I also have our en-suite to the right of me, great for when nature calls (really, Abbie, TMI!).
To set myself up I have brought, what Argos call a ‘Basic Desk’. I suppose for £14.99 you could only expect basic! Dan and myself spent about an hour putting it together (well Dan mainly!) and for the cost I would say it’s great value. In time I would like to get a slightly more durable desk, but baby steps. I have also decorated my desk with a few girlie objects. I do love a pretty item.
I have a white ceramic owl. I went through a phase about a year ago, loving all things owl themed. Which made it very easy for my family to buy for my birthday and for Christmas. I had to politely request no more, as my flat was fast becoming to look like an ornamental owl sanctuary!
I also have a framed quote reading; ‘Live every moment, Laugh every day, Love beyond words’, which I though was a lovely quote. This little beauty cost me the grand total of £1.99 from Card Factory!
I was also on the hunt for a cute pen pot for my new desk (gotta be organised!) and after scouring my town centre, I ended in my favourite haunt, Cath Kidston. Inspiration took hold of me (doesn’t often happen mind) and picked up a lovely pink and white polka dot mug, that I thought I would fashion as a pen pot. Genius!
I also have a plastic pink flower to add a floral touch. I would go for a real flower but inevitably it would die and ever the practical person I opted for a fake flower.
My next plan will be to invest in a nice desk chair. Dan has recently brought a really comfy gaming chair for his desk, but that did set him back a cool £100 smackers, so I think I will scope out Staples soon for an alternative to a dining chair!
Anyway that is my little typing den (not sure what I should call it). It is so far serving it’s purpose!
