joy, Marie Kondo style

i was reading an article today about Marie Kondo and how she started out as a tidiness guru. Apparently she started already at university, tidying up peoples rooms when she dropped by, tidying their desks etc. She could not help it and became known for it. Reading that, made me look at my desk, which…

Day 43, maintaining focus

I think a lot of us are having difficulty continuing to focus on the daily work during this prolonged period of home office. I was reading some headline on Linkedin today about that we should not expect this time to be like before, because the times are not like before. We need to be kind…

day 42 – 35 years on

Today was the day that Kitty tried to sneak up on her favorite position. She started on the chair, first in the office this morning, then lay around on the floor as if catching rays, did a quick leap on to the desk via my vacated chair at an opportune moment, and then perfected the…

home office upgrade

now that I have been working from home so long, and it looks like it will continue, I decided it was time to upgrade my desk. Now of course buying a new desk in a shop is not possible, and ordering online would take forever so I popped onto the local auction site and managed…

day 29, asleep on the job.

My goodness, we have been a month working from home now. Kitty is becoming more and more annoying, erm integrated into the home office. She spent a lot of time leaping onto my desk today and trying to muscle in on what I was doing, or otherwise falling asleep. This does not make it all…

day 21: Kitty in charge

So after 3 weeks of Home office, Kitty seems to think she needs to muscle in on what I am doing. She insisted on sitting on my lap whilst I was calling with a colleague, and then kept a close eye on me afterwards. Maybe she was checking that I was not slacking. Fortunately she…

day 16

my co-worker did not come to the office this morning, she chose to stay in bed. Lucky her. I, on the other hand, suddenly had an abundance of work came in. My boss called me and asked me to summarise all the measures that Switzerland is taking to help companies at this time into one…

day 8

Kitty was really not so happy today, my husband went out. This made her super restless, lots of miaowing and jumping in and out of the bath. Well I think it was due to him going out, but it may have been kitty constipation. So Hubby went for a walk, alone, in the hills, whilst…

Day 4 lockdown light

hey, it is Friday and weekend, not sure why my co-worker looks so down about it. My first full week of home office is over. I am feeling so much more up to date than normally, and the weekend lies before me without all those things i would normally have had to do waiting for…

in praise of home office

Today I took a home office day. They are not really encouraged at our place, but it was so good. I could spend some extra time in bed, I did not have to dress up, nor take the train. That daily commute is so tiring, and such a lot of time. I saved nearly 2…
