I'm a little envious of the screen real estate on here. Mine was supposed to be a temporary desk so if folds down from the wall. Currently it looks like this: -

I've been wondering if I'm going to need to hang a bedsheet behind my desk for an upcoming event. The sloping ceiling seems to do weird things when I try using a Teams background if I move at all.

I've been tempted to fill the visible bookshelves behind me with the most appalling/distasteful books I could find (or at least wrapper the existing books in sleeves that made them look like the most appalling books).

Instead I went for a deeply off putting set:-

Also, I couldn't work with all those cables trailing down the wall at Jaded's.

You should see behind the monitor - there's a 15 socket power bar. Full.

You have my chair!
Cat docking here is strictly between November and March.
When the CH is on and bits of the kitchen floor are warm.
And Part-Time deigns to put in her appearance.

About 10 years WFH.  I'll tidy up.  One day.  Perhaps.

The first week I was WFH I had to shift the laundry off the bed behind me...

I was going to do it catalogue style. So I did. The printer, an entire batallion of mustelids (fearsome honeybadger!), an entire rainforest of house plants, and the Babylon 5 box set are behind me. To the right is the patio door and balcony and view of the mysterious and now mouldering purple levitating tent and to the right, a nice sofa bed for when it all gets too much.

I hated the thing.  Occasionally it would come crashing down due to a faulty bracket at one end.  It was here when I got here but I've seen it out.  😃

We don't have a cat but the dog sometimes comes and sits on my feet to keep them warm while I work, which is very thoughtful of him.

There was a broken one of those tied up with a pair of shoelaces in the kitchen when we moved in.  It got binned when I became reasonably sure the landlord didn't give a shit.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Ours have succumbed to the building works - they're coated in so much black dust that I have no intention of putting them back (we have curtains, after all).

Ikea stopped selling them because of the strangulation risk to children, I gather.

Note also the wedge of paper under the corner of the keyboard. I think it's the desk that's the culprit - the keyboard stops wobbling if I move it to a different area of the desk.

We had a similar problem with a similar keyboard, solved by sticking (I think I used double sided tape) a 20mm wide strip of 3mm closed cell foam packing material to the tope edge of the back of it. That gave enough resilience and give to even out the slightly uneven desk top.

Extra points for the anglepoise lamp.

Ikea's finest.

Excellent, I wanted one and did wonder whether to spunk £250+ on a genuine Anglepoise or get a cheap knock-off.

£9. Bargain!

Even better, that clamp can be screwed to a vertical surface (such as my shed wall) over a workbench, giving local light without obstruction. Ordered!
