Distraction...

Post by Sandrine »

It's great that when the weather is nice and you're working from home you can work outside... Only thing is you can get easily distracted... 😂

Ooops. I don't think I would get anything done if I was sent to work from home either. It's bad enough seeing the glorious weather through the window. ;-)

Ah. Distraction. Right outside my windows I have a small park which my sheep are currently in to eat down the last of this years grass. I can sit in my rocker, mug of coffee in hand watching them graze and listening to the steady rhythm of their feeding as they move forward.
Is it a distraction. If so, from what?

My distraction in the home office is Shiina Ringo and crew on Youtube. Well, actually music it's pretty energising when there's a long email to put together - but not to watch! When its not raining, having the loft window open is nice. There is a big cedar opposite and all the birds, except the gulls, visit it in the day The real office is a hermetically sealed air con box and not nice at all but I do miss the travelling to get there - somehow wandering upstairs with a cup of tea doesn't feel like arriving at work. .... love the photo montage, by the way. Haven't seen any ladybirds around here for a long time. Not even on walks.

Well and of course my own pet zoo is enough to keep me distracted anyway without having ladybirds coming to visit too 😅

Thank you ☺️
I prefer working from home personally... If I was told that I was not to commute / drive anymore I really wouldn't mind and probably have a party and celebrate! It's great to be reunited with my work colleagues in person of course but once a week is good enough. Teams does a pretty good job the rest of the time...

That's why a lot of people working permanently from home have a garden office. Would it help to create the distance between home and office if you went for a walk and then went straight up to work when you got home?
