Working from home is brilliant, I love getting home from the nursery run, clicking on the coffee machine, putting on some tunes and settling down to work. Before having Wilf I used to work in a very small office of only two other people so I've never really experienced the office social scene or had one to miss. I'm pretty focussed when it comes to my work days and not having a television certainly helps keep me away from distractions.
We have a two bedroom home so no extra space for an office, this means that for the most part any work I did would be on the corner of the dinning room table. The trouble with having a large table means we end up covering it in lots of bits and bobs, Wilf's things, our things, post that needs dealing with..you get the picture. We realised that we weren't actually utilising the table and would benefit from a smaller table to eat from and ensure we didn't use it as a dumping ground and get me a simple desk space for the alcove.
We bought this table top for £7 and attached it to some existing stands we owned. It's great as its small enough to ensure I keep the area clean rather than pile is high with tons of things like I did our previous one.
Add a vase of fresh flowers and I love my little desk space!
Do you work from home? Where are you able to grab a space? I'd love to know!
