Working from home has its perks. I am lucky enough to work my schedule around my kids and get to be a part of what they get up too in life.
It has its challenges also … having an office at home, I feel pulled to work all the time. I have to try and have self control and switch off, instead of working 24-7. This can be very difficult. It also works the other way, when I am supposed to be working – there are endless “home” chores that can be done like washing, cleaning etc …
I try to plan my day the night before … getting the house chores done before work hours start. If this does not happen, they have to wait until I get a break or at lunchtime. I also have to try and disconnect from social media at night … and even through the day when I am trying to work, as I get very distracted with it.Knowing what we are having for dinner is a big part of weather my day goes well or not. I know that sounds silly – but if it is left to the last minute, I just seem to go to pieces and it takes me twice as long to get it done.
I also use a diffuser when I am working. I usually put an uplifting blend in – my favourite at the moment is Grapefruit and Peppermint. This seems to keep me awake and focussed.
Having my snacks, and lunch prepared also saves me time.
This lamb curry recipe I popped in the slow cooker last week … I used lamb pieces on the bone that the butcher had for curry making, but any type of lamb would work.

Here is to a productive week
