The home office

While other Australians are off seeing the world, some of them journeying off to obtain the world championship titles in cricket, netball, hockey, rugby union, baseball or tennis, I’m just sitting at home. Working from home in fact. Yep, new job, new challenges.

I only started doing this a couple of weeks ago, so it’s early days yet. But it’s going well so far. If I need to I can drown out the noise from the kids by playing a CD. Despite having no colleagues present, I can connect to the Net to avoid feeling isolated from the rest of the world. And it’s finally given me an excuse to clean up the spare room a little bit – though not so much that you’d notice.

And I can use my Bungee Jumping Jesus screen-saver without offending anyone…
