I've not really turned it into an office. I've put a few pictures on the wall in front of where I sit but that's nice anyway. It's only the kitchen table I've "commandeered" but I work from a lap top so it's very easy to do a quick "transformation" and I can get it looking like a dining table again in no time. Besides it's really the only place I could work so in a long winded answer to your question, no she doesn't mind.

Robin, I was wondering why you didn't make one of your rooms an office, instead of working in your kitchen.  Wouldn't that be easier because you can have file cabinets and office supplies next to you. You wouldn't have to move your stuff around either.

That's a grand idea and one I've considered but our spare room is so full of junk that I wouldn't be able to. Not without a serious amount of work. That's where all the things "we haven't unpacked yet" after moving in nearly two years ago are sitting in boxes. The kitchen is cool though. It's very big so I have alot of space. Don't imagine me crammed in next to the cooker or anything. It's quite lovely really  Smiley.

Actually, I think working at home is much better for your health.  You don't have to rush out the door on your lunch break to eat fast food.  That's what happened to me.  I used to go out for lunch with co-workers and I started gained a few pounds.  Your much better eating healthy food from home. 

I hope you keep your at home job.

I think people would be much happier if they worked from home.  The stress of traveling to work and dealing with people in the office can be stressful. 

Often I wonder is life was simpler when the main source of income was going into the farming industry.

Being a farmer is very hard work.  Today many farmers are complaining they aren't making a lot of money because of the change in climate and how it's been affecting their crop.

It's true I would never want to be a farmer. Such a hard job. Romantic in many ways, farming your land and all that but the practicalities are very probably very different.

Indeed.

I think you have to be a special kind of person to want to get your hands dirty (literally) and farm the land.
