Beware - polishing furniture is addictive. There are worse vices but it means that you are met with a tidal wave of beeswax when you open the front door.

Your desk looks adorable - I can't imagine anything nicer than sitting down and writing on tooled leather.

The desk is a much-loved and very well-used piece of furniture.
Regarding the 'tidal wave of beeswax', the dogs did rather pointedly leave the room ...

I am now envious of your desk. Sorry.

Aha! I love a completely empty desk :-) One day you will have to explain, patiently as if to a small child, what sentiment is, or rather (in case you think I am now a soulless android) why it needs a physical presence. My desk has essential stuff on it too(monitor, keyboard, mouse) and lots of other things if I am using them, but at the end of the day it returns to its empty state (OK the monitor, keyboard and rodent are still there) and when I arrive in the morning that is such a pleasure to see.

One day you may see what I do in emptiness.

I have just read my way through your earlier "tidy desks link" - what a lot of comments I made. I hope some people found them interesting, it sounded a little like I was working for the Clean Deak Company Ltd.!

Dark Puss

Clean Desk Company!!

A whole new career awaits you, DP: you could be the Marie Kondo of desks, going about helping people to a more efficient, stress-reducing way of working!

Dark Puss

I had to look that up! I don't have the ivory dress or the heels yet (see New York Times review) sadly :(

Cornflower

You have bespoke suits ...
Doubtless you don't share Miss Kondo's animistic attitudes, but you'd have much else to offer your clients, I'm sure!
