I'm not going to lie to you, working from home has its advantages.
There's the fact I can work in my slippers. No more cramming my feet into high-heeled shoes or boots just because they look good. The downside of this is that my feet appear to have grown because they are no longer restricted, but that's a small price to pay.
Then there's the fact that I can make a cup of tea or go to the loo whenever I like. No more raising my hand in the air to be relieved - as in somebody take over my desk or permit me a leave of absence rather than anything more unpleasant or complicated than that, in case you were wondering.
I suspect the day will come though when some workers will be given commodes and expected to carry on whilst in situ, but hopefully not in my lifetime. Although as my pension age keeps on moving further away, I fear that I may never actually retire and this may become my reality!
I can also plan my work around daughter's school day/holidays - this is probably the best feature, and truthfully should feature higher in the list but for the fact that I like the freedom of slippers and 'comfort breaks'.
The long school summer holidays does make you appreciate Teachers more though doesn't it? They look after our little darlings for nearly eight hours a day, every weekday, during term time. No wonder they need a six week break.
The major downside of working from home is the regular visitation of delivery drivers. Admittedly, sometimes the only human contact I have during the day other than family members, but our conversations are very one sided and usually consist of variations on the theme of 'Parcel... neighbour... sign... thanks.'
And the most bizarre delivery of which I've taken charge? Ten sacks of washing powder. I kid you not - I'm guessing an e-Bay bulk-purchase bargain, which literally filled my porch until retrieved much later that day. Still, it made the house smell 'cotton fresh'!
