I’ve been working from home since about the 17th of March… about 4 or 5 months now… and I’m pretty much used to it by now.
I started off in the kitchen with my laptop… and mouse…
Then I moved up to the spare room with a makeshift desk and stool. And eventually I got my wireless keyboard and small monitor stand from the office.
Then there was my bench in the garden in the morning sun… and my chair / makeshift desk in the garden in the afternoon sun…(and the extended WiFi too).
Yesterday going into the office felt very odd.
There was hardly anyone in. But aside front that, I was able to book a space, away from people, but in a little pod. The seat was too deep for me, and I could have done with a cushion, but it did for the day. A nice little quiet area.
Now today… I got a (cheap) upgrade to my makeshift desk … a laptop stand that raises my laptop to standing height. And it seems to work well.
The best thing about this set up is that it’s height adjustable, so it can be sit or stand, and it can be folded away when not in use. Should be good for my back… instead of a backless chair / stool hopefully.
Note – my working from home uniform is active wear including a hoody – any one else?
Where are you working from home? Have you adjusted to the set up ok? Can you get peace and quiet to work? Do you like it or loathe it?
I think I like it, and I never thought I would – I do miss people though, it was nice to see some colleagues face to face yesterday for the first time in months.
