The Joys Of Working From Home

This morning I planted a beech hedge before work!



We needed to plant a hedge due to moving a shed on a boundary, it had left a big gap.  The beech whips will establish their roots over winter.  I look forward to seeing the new leaves in the spring. 



We have other changes going on in the garden over the next month.  A garden office will be built under our large Lime tree.  Does anyone else work from home?  Do you find it liberating or distracting?

  1. I used to work from home and found that you have to be very disciplined indeed. Working in a room with not much of a view was bad enough - well, it has lovely pictures and a wall of books to distract me! - but I think I would find working in an office in the garden just too distracting! Though I love the idea...

    1. I think it will be easy in the winter to keep on track, but I am worried come the nice weather I will be tempted by the swing, the trampoline and an easy chair....

  2. I sometimes daydream of being able to work from home but know I'd spend too long faffing.

    1. I do faff, but I also enjoy working to a deadline, no matter how unfeasably near it is #winwin!

  3. I worked from home for a short while and loved not having to join the rush to work every morning but I did miss the cameraderie of working with other people. I used a bedroom upstairs to work in but I love the thought of a garden office, I think I would find that quite distracting at times but quite inspiring too:)

    1. I will report on the change over, I hope the Muntjac deer continue to visit our garden, and my presence doesn't scare them away.

  4. Your beech hedge looks wonderful and I bet it will grow well and fast too. I also would spend far too long procrastinating if I worked from home. Or wandering into the kitchen! x

    1. Today has been brilliant, it's so cold and horrid out, and I've been in all day (well apart from the dentist appointment but that doesn't count!)

  7. I am a housewife and I adore being at home, although I can get too engrossed in a book, forget the time, then try & rush around like a headless chicken before tea time!

  10. I work from home a couple of days a week and love it. Just having the time to put the washing on feels like a treat!

  11. I used to work from home in a small room off the kitchen where the contents of the biscuit tin called to me through the doorway! I could work for hours without interruption in poor weather but once the sun was out it was very difficult to stay at my desk. I loved being home, with the freedom to wander round the garden during my coffee break, but deadlines could always keep me in check.
