Goodbye to my desk
This week was my last at my desk. It was also my last working week for this year. When I return on January 5th I will be officially 'hot desking' as they call it. I will always have a place to sit however it will now never be my own and will be simply borrowed until the owner comes back from sick leave.
I have been at my work location now for nine weeks and will be there until early May. On my first day I was given a desk and it was my base. I was not always sitting at it as I spent a lot of time out and about. It was always there however when I returned from the cold and it offered me a warm place to sit at to get the feeling back in my hands and reflect on what I had just witnessed. My kind aunty gave me the gift of a small felt bird (whom I have named Doris) during my first week and it was my personal thing that I kept there until yesterday when Doris and I had to move out. My 9 weeks work of various pieces of paper is sitting in a pile at the desk of my manager now and Doris is residing with me over the Christmas period.
So on January 5th new adventures for Doris and I will start and there will be many more things to see and feel. For now however I would like to thank my desk for having me and tell it how much I valued its presence in the start of a sometimes scary but mostly exciting new adventure. X
