Thought I'd start a little light hearted thread amongst all of the doom and nastiness. I have the tiniest desk, and I'm thinking it needs a bit of a clear up. So here's what's on mine:-

Laptop (obvs)
Mouse
Alexa Dot
Chilli's bottle
Ipad
Phone
Handcream x2
Lip balm x2
Airpods x2 (one for laptop, one for ipad)

Oh and the remains of breakfast at the minute! What's on yours?

@Sheusedtobesomeonelse, I bought a riser thingy for my home desk - it's a game changer! I got this one when it was on offer and it's made a huge difference (my desk was actually a table, and slightly too low, so I was getting sore shoulders). It goes to full standing height, and I'm not short. www.costco.co.uk/Furniture-Home/Home-Office-Furniture/Desks/Seville-Classics-Airlift-Pro-Pneumatic-Sit-to-Stand-Desk-Riser/p/329204

Mine tends to just lie asleep in his office bed, so that he's got the energy to wake me up in the small hours.hmm

I have a computer desk, so the Mac is hidden underneath. So I have keyboard, mouse, screen, headphones, router, coaster, a few bits of paper, couple of pens and a small writing pad.
