A mess



I’ve been tagged by Man Widdicombe to describe my *ahem* work station. This was on the instigation of Dick Puddlecote who started this interesting diversion from the mundane pastime of Ranting Blogging.

Now my desk is an Ikea table set against the wall in my Kitchen so as to be out of the way. I’ve been meaning to move it to one of the bedrooms since the kids flew the coop, but never got around to it.

Not to waste any time, here is my description of my blogging pit.

A computer obviously, situated under the table.

A monitor and keyboard.

A portable hard drive

A camera.

Satnav. (To navigate through the junk on the table).

Two debit card readers. Legal, before you ring the Plod.

2009 diary. I must get around to throwing that out.

A pile of paperwork which I must look through someday.

Order of service for Mother’s funeral. She died recently. (Three years ago).

November’s Parish magazine.

A shredder.

A sealed tin. Containing God knows what.

A cylinder of computer wipes.

Three Christmas crackers.

Piles of used and unused CDs, DVDs, and a floppy.

? (Whatever it is, I hope that it’s dead).

Ashtray(Full). Note to self. Must get a bigger one.

Ciggies. Bugger where’s the lighter gone.

One printed picture entitled “Submarine racing,exciting to watch”

A Christmas card from the Indian Takeaway.

That’s about it. I think.

I would like to nominate Fuel Injected Moose and Mummy Long Legs. lets see what they’ve got in their Blogging pits.


  1. Fucking hell...

    I now consider myself to be houseproud.

  2. I used to have an office which contained two desks, a filing cabinet, printer, desktop PC, and a comprehensive UHF/VHF/HF ham radio station.

    Then we moved to a listed building, so no aerials allowed. Got a study, sold radio station and one desk. Added a bookcase and a cupboard.

    Retired and downsized - really - now have a laptop, router in the cupboard under the stairs, and a printer/scanner in the upstairs cupboard (rarely used). All paperwork scanned onto CD/DVD then binned.

    It can be done. Beat that if you can!...but I must say that your setup sounds quite a bit like my son-in-law's study.

  3. Wot Righwinggit said. Damn impressive. :)

  4. That's after I tidied it up. pretty good Huh.

  5. "A Christmas card from the Indian Takeaway."

    Is it addressed to you personally? If so then maybe you need to cook more .. .. .. ..

  6. Phew, I appreciate being ignored. :)

    Now I won't have to tidy up. Then again, it's Hogmanay now so the whole house gets a good 'going over' before midnight. Only here and the kitchen to do.

    A Guid New Year FE.
