What does your home-office look like?


This is mine, our couch in our living room.  I sit there with my mac on my lap and typing away like a mad woman while T watches her DVDS.  Yes, I know, she watches way too much television.  But when I’m busy with a deadline, there’s really nothing much I can do about it.

Most mornings, I work in our kitchen too.  Sometimes T plays with her play-dough, paints or draws beside me and when the weather is good enough, I also work in the garden while she plays in her sandpit, tent, or bouncy thing.  That’s my life as a mom.  It’s better this way actually – I’m able to take my work with me wherever I am in the house, than just sitting on a desk.  Sometimes, I do wonder if I’ll be more productive and creative if I stay put on a desk. But that’s just not possible for me right now, not with a two-year-old, almost three-year-old demanding little girl like mine.  I’ll consider a desk, once she begins school.

For now I can dream of having a lovely home-office like the following:

    I feel your pain. Although your sofa looks comfier than mine! Working from home with an almost three year old (and a baby) is almost impossible – they never sleep when you need them to, certainly not at the same time, and are no respecters of deadlines.

    • Thanks for dropping by. Wow, I salute you! Can’t imagine how hard it must be to have an almost three-year-old and baby! I struggle with mine, though I would love to have another little one. It’s not that easy, time is ticking for me. You’ll never know, right? All the best, D.

        Here’s hoping! Little babies are worth all the effort. That smile in the morning makes all resentment melt away. I do get help from my mother in law, who plays with them while I hide in her study to meet deadlines.

        • I agree totally agree with you. You are lucky you have a mother-in-law whom you can count on – mine lives too far away!
