You may remember about six months ago I finally finished Operation Spare Room, where I transformed my UGLY Chinese laundry/dumping ground/excuse for a spare room into a tranquil oasis, ready to welcome a multitude of guests from the UK. In quick succession we entertained Dad and his girlfriend, my friend Rachel, and then my friends Kavi and Steve (the Poms all come between October and January). It’s a small room but it did the job and many declared it the comfiest bed they’d ever slept in (thanks, MicroCloud mattress topper, thoroughly recommended).
So why, a few short months later, am I about to undo all those efforts? (I have to admit I love having a room with an almost permanently made bed, meaning I can leave the door open and it always looks nice!) Because, since I started working for myself, from home, in October, the dining table just doesn’t cut it. I need a home office and I need it now. Today, a whole load of furniture will arrive and by the end of next week, time permitting, it may all get assembled.
So I’m wondering, dear readers, what are YOUR tips for a great home office? Or just working from home in general?
