    On my computer screen right now – the exbiblio blog website, Outlook, some picture files I’m copying to a disc. One my desk, an appointment diary, a book called “Start Up” by Jerry Kaplan, 2 notebooks, a cheque that needs to be paid into my bank, some business cards, some yellow sticky to-do notes, an empty envelope. Not as tidy as yours. Oh, and I have a digital recorder that will have some sound files on it.
