Today was the first day that I have ever worked from home.
The company I work for nowadays are actually organised enough to prepare for such eventualities and gave me a laptop on Thursday evening so I could work from home if the snow got bad…and with the huge amount of work that I have on at the moment, a snow day is the last thing I need.
Needless to say I liked it. No getting to 530pm and thinking, now I need to get the train and walk lots in the cold…straight to the fridge to pour a glass of wine.
I could make as much noise as I wanted to. Music was on loud. I had a little boogie now and again. It isn’t too hot, cold and there is plentiful oxygen. I could have sat here naked but I don’t want to frighten the neighbours whilst watching the snow.
I got about as much work done as I would have otherwise, however if I hadn’t gone in and then gone home this morning I would have got more done.
I also had an excellent excuse for not answering the phone.
Downsides – well the laptop is a bit old and clunky unlike the brand new desktop PC at work.
Sadly I suspect it is a one-off…well depending of course on the weather on Monday 😉
