Where bloggers work – behind the scenes with Slummy single mummy

Last week I moved into a new office.

I’ve been sharing an office in Taunton with a couple of guys for a while now, but it had a little bit of a student bedsit feel about it – gym kits, dirty spoons, rugby posters, you can picture the scene. My roomies were lovely, but there wasn’t the space for me to have all of my things around me.

My new office is much more spacious and I rocked up with a whole car load of stuff from home – folders, tissues, plants, fruit bowl – pretty much all of the things. Back in Bristol I had dedicated office space at home, and had everything arranged really nicely, so it’s lovely to have all of my work things back around me, and all of my pretty postcards stuck up, for me to gaze at when I get bored. A high proportion of my paraphernalia is food based – granola, biscuits and bananas abound.

It got me thinking though about how your workspace influences creativity and productivity, and I was curious about how other bloggers work – does everyone really have beautifully white Pinterest ready workspaces, or is the reality a little more down to earth?

I’m going to let you take a peek at my new work area and every week I’m going to feature another blogger. It will be a brilliant chance for us all to have a nose behind the scenes of the blogs we love – if you’d like me to feature you please do get in touch!

What things do you need around you when you work?

    I share my office with the tumble dryer, a clothes airer and usually a cat on the back of my chair. But it’s my office, I can see the sun (when it’s not lashing it down) and it’s not owned by anyone else (except the guys who provide the mortgage)!
