If you’ve been reading for while, you’ll be aware that late last year I negotiated to work from home for for 2 hours, 3 afternoons a week.
I gave it a good shot, but it really wasn’t working out for me. I’d pack up from SaltMinesLimited, arrive home and start work again for another two hours – honestly, it was becoming like homework and I was beginning to really resent the intrusion of work into my space (plus I felt guilty every time I’d get up to chop an onion or put the dryer on or to boss Joe/Frank about).
So, after a good deal of though and chatting with DishyBoss, this month I’m trialling coming in super-early, having a short lunch and leaving at 4pm with no working from home.
So far I’m back in the haus by 4.30 (and miss the worst of the bus traffic) and let me tell you that it has been completely and utterly wonderful!
I am in heaven. I’m getting so very much done both around the haus (my cupboards are looking wonderfully organised already) and with various projects and I feel fabulously content!
Time to make the change permanent I think.
