Most of us who have a partner would probably have to admit that they get on our nerves (at least) some of the time. So imagine working in the same house as them, or even in the same room as them! More people are starting to work from home and there is an increasing number of families where both partners work from home in some capacity. Sounds like fun doesn’t it!
For some reason the topic recently came up on my Twitter stream. Quite a few of my Twitterati explained that they and their partner both work from home and that relatively little has been written about it so far.
So how do they make it work? Having a good working environment is important.
Are they sat in the same room or are they lucky enough to have the luxury of a room each?
I had a taste of working in this way back in 2011 when my husband was made redundant. We made sure we sat in different rooms, but I did find that we settled into traditional roles a little too easily…I ended up cooking lunch and did most of the tea and coffee making. Maybe I just drink more tea?!
But tea and coffee seems to be central to the discussion…
So what about if you have no-one to share your remote working space – do you feel left out?
I’m just hoping someone is going to write me a guest blog post about it all…
