I resisted working from home for a long time. Our family seemed to benefit from some separation of roles, and I always felt I could be more present at home when I couldn’t just go and fiddle with something work-related at the weekend.
But circumstances change, and it turns out that the new best thing for the family and the kids is to have lots of comfy leather chairs. And endless paper and pencils. Also rainbow buttons that change colour. Not sure whether I’ll get much work done but I won’t be short of company, or ‘assistance’.
