Yesterday’s Vampire

Yesterday I had to have a Vampire Day.

No I didn’t dress in Georgian attire and so suck some blood, but I did have to spend the day in a darkened room and hiding from the sun lest it turn me to a pile of ashes.

Basically, I had a migraine. Even light hurt.

But today the migraine is gone, swapped for a backache, though that was less swapped as paid for.

After day of doing nothing because I couldn’t do anything, today I have caught up.

I’ve shortened a load of curtains for my daughter, I’ve been to the supermarket, prepared a casserole for tonight’s dinner, planted up a load of pots for the front garden, and placed them out – which is what lead to the backache.

So now, I’ sitting down to blog, and catch up on some stuff on the internet stuff I couldn’t face yesterday. So, not much to say today, but feeling good, and wanted to share that.

Working from home is the dream for lots of people, certainly for me, but only because I want to be a full-time writer.  However, as many are discovering during this pandemic, working from home isn’t as easy you think.

Honestly, I prefer it, but have one issue – I haven’t worked out the best place to work yet. 

I tried the conservatory because that’s where I write, where my desk is. Most of my writing is done of an afternoon/evening, when I start work at 8am, the sun flows directly in. That sounds great, but means it’s too bright and I got a lot of headaches working there all day. I also found that the work-work impression now on the place has hampered my creativity, which isn’t good.

This week I’ve been working in the spare bedroom, but too small for a proper desk, so I’ve been using two overchair/laptop tables, as they are single-leg support they aren’t the safest for computer equipment – they wobble! Also, it means sitting on a bed.  I have a bad back and trust me, that’s not comfortable for all day working.

So, I’ve brought a console table for laptop and monitor and I’m going to rearrange the cushions to see if I can make it more comfortable. 

Hubby suggested I work in the campervan, after all it has an electrical supply and privicy, only that’s our leisure space. I love writing in the van, I don’t want to ‘infect’ it with the day job. 

This weekend I’m going to try making curtains for the conservatory, that may allow me to work in there again, then I can write in the living room without headaches or backache of an evening. 

I will find a working location, it may just take a few attempts.
