One of the happy side effects of Daisy’s new bedroom is my new study, we’ve swapped the rooms so Daisy has the large room (and is loving it) and I have the smaller one. What we’ve attempted to do is stuff everything that use to be in the larger bedroom into the small one; except that wasn’t really possible so we’ve left quite a lot of stuff under our bed.
Today I did some working from home and it was the first time I got to seriously work in my new study, with it’s nice clean desk and window with at least some sky for me to gaze at.
I actually prefer the smaller space, when you’re working quite intently at a computer screen having some walls close by is comforting.
I am however coming to the sad realization that if I have to do any significant amount of writing at a computer that I’m a desktop man not a laptop boy 🙁 which is a bit sad considering how many laptops we have floating about.
Both my main home and work computers are laptops, and despite one running shiny windows 7 and being vastly superior to anything else, I almost always find myself sitting at the creaking windows XP machine typing g away – and enjoying it.
I don’t know if it’s the keyboard comfort or the mouse over the touch pad (i suspect a bit of both) or indeed the big old monitor. but it just seems easier some how – even the thinking about what words to type bit.
