Help! My cat won't let me work from home
There are also downsides of working from home. I am guilty of raiding my fridge on a regular basis. I am also prone to procrastination - whether it be doing the laundry or repeatedly checking out the BBC News website when I should be working. However, these are not my main problems with home working.
My biggest challenge is with "Sid" my cat.
I have two cats - Manny and Sid. I did not name them - honest! They were rescue cats.
Manny seems to understand that I need to work and leaves me to it. But Sid (pictured) appears to be jealous of my computer and demands that I give him my undivided attention. Sid will just not accept the fact that I need to work at home.
I shoo him away, but he just sees this as a challenge. The obvious answer is to lock him outside. But when I do this, for the rest of the day he uses emotional blackmail to make me feel guilty. I shall just need to be stronger.
I apologise for this week's short and rather silly blog. I promise that I will be back to real House-Saver business next time when I will calculate the money that you can save by growing your own vegetables.
