*Win* A Portable Laptop Desk

I don’t actually remember when I was last able to sit down and concentrate on my work without someone needing me or some sort of interruption. With schools shut for so long and then various combinations of the children in and out of school due to their bubbles having to isolate, and school holidays, quiet work time has not really been possible for me.

I try to get up early and stay up late to make extra time but most of the time something else gets in the way of making any real progress with work and I end up feeling like I’m firefighting all of the time.

If I don’t sit correctly when I type I get very uncomfortable very quickly and then end up distracting myself anyway. There is always something that gets in the way.

In order to give me another comfortable option, when trying to find a quiet place in the house for half an hour at least, I’m going to be trying out this portable laptop desk.

I’m really excited to try this out as it looks like it is a good height, and comes with a cup holder, light and even a fan. It also has a USB port which will be really useful. This exact desk also comes in pink and both are available from Amazon for the very reasonable price of £27.99.

These are from a company called Elekin, to see what else they do, follow them on Instagram.

If you are still working from home and don’t have access to a home office, this could help at least make you a bit more comfortable.
