I Need Space …More Space
Having those couple of weeks off computer-less did give me some time to think about ..well stuff. I work from home, in the lounge to be precise, so it is easy for me to ‘just nip onto the computer’ and many hours later I find myself still there. All the books go on about making sure you have discipline to work and not slope off and watch TV but not many of them don’t say that you also got to discipline yourself so you don’t work too much. And I work too much.
So, as I started saying, I got thinking. Why do I work so much? Well the convenience thing is the main bit. Quick hop, skip and a jump over the back of the sofa and I am in my office space. So how can I change that? Well I don’t own my house so there is no equity to release to help with a lovely extension. And the only thing I could realistically fit in the garden is a rabbit hatch, hardly big enough to get a desk in let alone all the craft stuff. By the way, if you are a homeowner and the words “equity release” catch your eyes either because you want to find out more or because you only need to know if you can qualify check the Age Partnership equity release guide for all the information related. As I said, that option doesn’t work for me so send me other ideas.
I could look at getting a craft/office space so that I went out to work and when I am home I don’t do any work But that sort of undo’s all the positives that I wanted from working from home. Things like the low cost, always being here for the kids, working when I want and all the other positives.
Another thing making me think on all this I now want the whole of my lounge back. Growing teenage legs and kittens in a lounge office combo really doesn’t work.
Bright ideas on a post card please.
