I was wheeling a shopping trolley full of groceries to my car, when I noticed from the corner of my beady little eyes a mound of domestic detritus overflowing from a near-by clothing bin.
Someone must've decided to use the car park as a dumping ground for all their stuff, despite signs saying it was prohibited to leave bigger items like furniture near the bin. There was sh*t everywhere including a little forlorn student desk.
And that's when my interest was piqued. I went to have a closer look. Hmmm...atomic shape? Yes. Okay condition? Yes. Stable? Yes. Small enough to fit in the boot of the Subaru? That's when I pounced and carried it to the car.
I considered it my public duty to whisk it away, as it posed a potential trip and fall hazard in the car park. That's my story anyway.
The desk looks like it is a DIY home made number, but it is reasonably well-made with proper joins. It will still need some TLC. Nothing that a light sand and a lick of Danish oil can't fix.
It is perfect for a corner of our lounge room as it is quite compact. The younger boys will be able to use it when they do their homework or craft activities.
