Creating The Right Work Environment At Home

AD | Collaborative post When you are self-employed, especially if you work from home, it’s easy to get into bad habits. The sofa becomes a make shift office, you can work in your pyjamas and you can scoff a whole cake while you work if you want to. The thing is, as nice as all of this sounds, it doesn’t really make for a good or productive working environment. Now that I’ve been self-employed full time for around 3 years I have learned quite a lot about how kind of environment I need at home. Separate office space Up until about

We received an invitation to the press preview of this show.  I’ll be completely honest, before this summer I didn’t really know much about The Garage which is in the city centre of Norwich.

AD | Collaborative post. The spending money was gifted by Hotels.com, but all views are my own.

While we had plans on the Saturday we had the whole of Sunday free to explore and do whatever we wanted. Having been to London quite a few times over the years, there are things that I tend to do each time, and favourite places I always go to. However, an area that neither of us had
