Okay I'm starting from the lower left handside in a clockwise direction. So that's my note pad with notes for a difficult scene in the book. I wrote the scene but I'm not happy with it. I guess first drafts are rarely any good, but they never come out the way I think them in my head. Away on top of the pad are my spare glasses - yes, I do wear specs for computer work.
On the upper right hand side are three pots of pelargonium peltatum (I typed this straight from the label) that Sis brought me as a gift. I just found out they are also called ivy geraniums. They are just there for the time being. The pots are one a bunch of papers and a book....yes. After that a broken index card holder which contains my pack of index cards for my story, yeah, I have touched them for weeks now, a cat from a greeting card, and my NetGallery freebie.
Same old stuff as in the bottle of castor oil, a packet of tissues, and my desk lamp.. Moving downwards is my pencil case sitting on top of a daily calendar which I still haven't carried to my office. Finally is my glasses' case and two notebooks.
Finally my MacBook - the screws are coming loose so I need to find my way to the Apple shop so they can tighten the loose ones and replace the missing ones. Personally, I think it it should be done for free, and this reflects shoddy workmanship. I never had this problem with two PC laptops. I'm not impressed. Don't believe all the Apple hype. Actually I got an iPhone 8 and it was faulty, yet I had so much problems in the Apple shop. At times, the assistants can be so self righteous about their products rather than just admitting fault. Don't me started about some oversized reddy faced manager at Covent Garden and some idiot at the Regent Street branches.
Bad experiences with both Apple stores that turned me off, so in the end I just opted for a One Plus 5 phone. That has its own drama too but that is a story for another day.
