Unsurprisingly, I'm getting rather excited.
So from August I'll be living in Sheffield, studying at Manchester, and - from October - working part time in Leeds. It's a good thing I quite like train journeys!
The part time job in Leeds is very part time - we're talking 20 hours a year - so that's not going to be much of an issue, and getting to Manchester in the week is pretty cheap if you book in advance and are happy to be a bit flexible with your hours. I have an office at my uni, so I'll want to be popping over fairly regularly (I'm aiming for 2-3 days a week). That still leaves two or three working days at home each week.
And that got me thinking - because if there's anything I like thinking about, it's what living in the Sheffield flat will be like.
So I've ended up constructing a very specific image of what a "typical" (read: total fantasy) day working from home might look like...
6:30am: Wake up, have breakfast
7am - 8:30: Go on exercise bike
8:30 - 9:15: Shower, dressed, healthy snack, hair and make up. Lay out books, notepads, and laptop on work table (whether that's in the dining room or the spare room that day)
9:30 - 10am: Walk down to Fancie and pick up a coffee to take away
10am - 6pm: Work! (with 30 minutes for lunch)
6pm - late: Annoy Sam, eat dinner, and relax.
How much of "work" will actually turn out to be mindless web-surfing/Netflix marathoning remains to be seen. But I feel this is a decent little plan.
