Doing the job...

The Exfactor and I found a work surface on sale for my computer table that was completely finished and measures 60x175cm. The length is 4cm longer than I am tall, to give you some idea. It is in a mottled gray. It was available in a variety of colors, but this one matches my sofa and in the end had my preference. I realized that a light wood color did not really fit with the general d├ęcor and would have stuck out like a sore thumb.
We had to, of course, remove everything from the old work surface in order to turn the computer table upside down to attach the new one. I let the Exfactor worry about all the cables and connections and just took care of removing all the precious items and the clutter.
Fixing the frame with the legs attached to it turned out not to be such a tough job. At least, the Exfactor made it look easy and, of course, he had the right tools for the job. When he was done, we turned the table right side up again and the Exfactor reconnected all the cables and we put the table in place. I put everything back on top and the larger space made such a difference. I finally have room for all my stuff and it's a pleasure to work at this table now.
I have made enough changes in my living space that I am going to have to take a time out just to get used to them, and today I am not going to make any more alterations, but pick up my everyday, ordinary life on a low simmer. I'll put the whole day in a low gear and spend some time in contemplation. I will be good to, just for today, live in the moment.

That is absolutely wonderful. The Exfactor sounds a really helpful person to have around the place.
Glad the desk is such a good success.
