Today I’ve got a post for you in collaboration with Furniture At Work, who sent me over a video that really struck a chord with me.

I love that the video recognised the difference challenges of working in an office and working from home. Even down to going professional on the top, pyjamas on the bottom when jumping on a conference call!

It got me thinking – which things have we all done when working from home?

Pull out your marker, it’s time to play Work From Home bingo!

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] Have a mini office dance party when a project goes well.

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] Get too chatty with the postman because they’re the first person you’ve seen today

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] Become the default house for all the deliveries in your street.

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] Keep a ‘postman bra’ by the door to throw on when the doorbell goes unexpectedly

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] Find yourself cleaning the house instead of dealing with a tricky work task

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] Feel irrational rage when people are noisy in your street in the middle of the day

(This was me this week when trying to record a podcast when my neighbours were having building work)

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] Feel a little bit jealous of people’s takeaway lunches on Instagram…

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] …Then realising that you can cook really amazing lunches at home/order a Dominos

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] Put Peppa Pig on so you can take a call/reply to an important email

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] Feel a bit smug when it’s 8am and you don’t have to commute to work

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] Fend off friends or family who assume you can drop work at a moment’s notice

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] Reach peak ‘I need to see humans’ status and heading to a coffee shop

[su_icon icon=”icon: check-square-o”][/su_icon] Come home again and realise how much you love working from home
