Slow Desk Day

12 Jul



There really is nothing like playing ‘name that tune’ with the random shuffle of your desktop iTunes, and there are not many places where Saint-Seans is followed by Alice Cooper, Dean Martin, Zakk Wylde, Samantha Gibb or Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band with a side of Lord Rockingham XI (eclectic you say? Maybe).

After a few weeks of procrastination I forced myself to attend to the growing clutter on the desk. I enjoy my desk, I can get on with the admin of life, I can amuse and entertain myself and I can feel like something has been achieved. My to-do lists (I have categories) is totalling 27 and I’ve whittled it down to …..drumroll….. 24 🤣

There is nothing like a new toy to get the motivation going. It may sound pretty unspectacular but I’m a bit geeky. It’s a confidentiality roller. You look perplexed. It’s just a pre-inked roller that you roll across paper and it covers any print with a pattern, ideal for scrolling across letters containing addresses, personal details, before putting it in the recycling bin.

New toys need new homes, as I was adjusting bits and bobs in the desk draw I came across the spare refill for my twisty pen, you know the one I couldn’t find but knew I had somewhere. I found it, yippee, right after opening the replacement I had bought as I couldn’t find the b-loom-ing thing. Sod’s Law is alive and wreaking havoc.

I was just finishing off a little task when my tea time carer arrived, I’d lost time and was unprepared. That’s the power of …… the desk!

Must finish off an email.

    Well done … respect! I find it’s not so much the tidying up I mind, but having to make all the decisions about where to put things.

      I went to my desk about 2:30pm by 4pm I hadn’t tackled anything on the list 🤣. Two tasks were done before I was distracted to other fun stuff 😜

        There’s always stuff that’s more fun than clearing up. We’ve had the bath removed as we only ever use the shower, and of course the exposed bit of wall has been retiled. I decided that I would grab the chance of washing down the fully-tiled walls (something that hasn’t been done for … ahem … 8 years). I got two done and was so bored I abandoned it to play my favourite game. (But I’ve finished it now … I’m a good girl, really I am …)

        Lol, it’s the housewife’s law … do a bit, sit a bit, do a bit more, sit a bit longer, repeat 👍

      I bet it was the bit about finding the pen refill that I’d put in a ‘safe’ place after buying another. 🙄

    For a slow desk day, you seemed to have had a gloriously fulfilling slow run.

    The confidentiality roller could come in useful for some pontifications issued from on high at intervals just to regular to be useful. And as for those who do the pontification, you’d need to make it a jolly great big one!
