Working on the Office

Hornby TrainsAll the books on working at home will tell you that it is a bad idea to have your office in your bedroom. Well, of course, that is where I have had mine for the past two years. But now I am seriously working on remedying that situation. I am taking over, or taking back, the room in the garage that is separate from the rest of the house and has a real door that would close the world out. In reality what this will let me do is get on with my work no matter what else is going on in the house.

And by junk I mean bodies of dead computers, old monitors, old printers, tons of keyboards, mice, etc. Well they are now all GoodWill’s treasures, not mine. And this means I can start to move into the office and decorate.

Decorate in the man, or overgrown boy, sense. Here you will see two of the decorations going up. I have been saving these for years just waiting for the right place to put them. My wife had lots of suggestions before now, but none of those suggestions seemed appropriate. At least not to me! But now they are going up in my office.

And hopefully the dead bodies will cease to accumulate.
