In the last two months, since I started blogging on a regular basis, I’ve found myself craving a proper writing spot. At the moment, this is where I usually blog. Sitting up in bed.
While I love our super-comfy bed (in all it’s IKEA spottiness), I usually find myself writing slumped at a 45 degree angle. Although cosy, it’s just not conducive to efficient Twittering, online shopping, blog reading writing.
When I plonk the laptop on the living room table and write, I get a slightly better outcome. But it’s noisy – husband’s usually watching TV – and the boys either want to watch NASA rocket launches on You Tube (Mr.4) or play with the computer cord (Mr.1).
So, it’s time to get myself a writing desk. Something small that can be placed in a quiet corner of the house. A place where Mummy can leave her beautiful children with their Daddy for an hour and flee the chaos write. A place where there’s simply no background noise, other than the whirr of my laptop’s fan…
I’ve pictured ‘The Writing Nook’ in my head now many times, and can envisage myself ploughing through blog writing and reading in a spot similar to this:
Lovely, yes? But since my budget is virtually, um, non-existant, I’m going to have to get creative. I could buy a cheap laminate computer desk, or a simple IKEA one..
However, I just love old wooden desks – even if they’re not in perfect condition. Especially those with little built-in shelves hidden behind a drop-down desk, similar to this…
So I’m scouring eBay, and will hopefully pick one up soon for a decent price. Once I’ve established ‘The Writing Nook’, I’ll post a photo!
Oh and hubby, if you’re reading this: first step – desk. Next step, Macbook!
Where do you write best?
