Currently my home office is a piece of wood next to the kids’ play area. The table is basically a wooden plank covered in colourful duct tape laid across two side drawers, with a laptop, months-old magazines, children’s toys, husband’s wallet, keys, and paperwork, and the odd dirty coffee cup. Sometimes the home office is in front of the TV as hubby and I catch up on shows as we multitask. A kid’s IKEA corkboard adorns the wall with receipts and photos. When I don’t have two kids with grubby hands smearing the table top and wrestling to watch Pocoyo on the laptop I’ll have a more coordinated workspace.
