I got round to tidying the desk and everything on it yesterday because I needed to set up my new toys.

So not only do I have new speakers for my PC and a dock for my iPod, I have something to show for my Christmas money and a clean and tidy workspace. 
The old speakers are in the loft , should a friend with the same speaker system need a replacement speaker rather than a (no longer available) replacement remote control, as I did. The battered headphones I’ve been using for the past 8 months are on their way out.

Oh, and I will be making sure that glasses of water go nowhere near the new kit as I’ve found to my cost that they tend to irreversibly damage electronics.
