With the curtains up in the conservatory, and my back playing up, I’ve been working back down in the conservatory. It’s been much better, I get the support of a decent desk and deskchair, and with the curtains taking the edge of the direct sunlight, it’s workable. What this means is that I don’t finish work with either a headache from too much sun or a backache from sitting on a sofabed all day.
I knew it would take a while to get things set up as I wanted.
The console table I had trouble with is now behind the sofa, holding my personal laptop (I’m working off the works laptop in the day). This now means that I have a working area that I can walk away from at the end of the day and then I’ve got somewhere safer for my personal laptop, instead of slipping it under the sofa.
It also means that the boxes of my books that have been behind the sofa have now been tidied up and put under the consol. This means they are away from the radiator – not that warmth has been an issue. And that we have easier access to the CD rack and the bottom of the bookcase that end of the room.
Still have to place my laptop over the scratch though!
But it’s working out, I’m getting comfortable, and that matters.
