Work from home news
We’ve heard the stories and benefitted from the expertise of many talented home workers, and I thought it would be good to keep up with their latest developments, so here is our first edition of Work from Home News.
Last November Danilon, the beautiful grey stallion in charge at Ednovean Farm in Cornwall, gave us an interview on his home working life. There has recently been a happy event at Ednovean with the arrival of his second grandchild.
Danilon’s spokeswoman, Christine, says, ‘Mother Amie suffered complications following the birth and failed to produce milk for Lillie. The regime of feeds every two hours, including through the night, has left us slightly short of sleep.
‘She is now approaching her zenith of milk requirement of between 17 and 19 litres a day for the next two weeks which requires permanent attachment to an egg whisk to meet her imperious demands. Yawn!
‘Lillie’s mother Amie is now doing well and even raises her head from her bed when we go in and out to feed her foal. You can nearly hear her saying “Nannies are so convenient, dahlings!” We are going out to supper to celebrate in August when Lillie is old enough to be weaned!’
More Work from Home News
Adam Bates is a sports commentator based at home and has just commentated at the French Open tennis tournament for the first time.
‘It was a truly exhilarating and sometimes surreal experience,’ says Adam. ‘First of all, it was a lot of work. I’d be commentating for up to 7 hours in a row as well as doing my intense research on the matches before and after I went on air.
‘When I had a chance to sit and just soak in the tennis, it dawned on me that I was realising the career ambition I’ve always had. I’d be sitting taking in, say, Djokovic vs Nadal, when John McEnroe would just pass through the media room or I’d exchange pleasantries with Martina Navratilova. Of course, I had to try my best to conceal the fact I was initially pretty star-struck!’
Have you produced a print on demand book?
Sharon Jackson of Bay Web Designs has reviewed my book Work from Home and turned out the pockets of her jacket for our perusal! She is determined to have her own new book about building her business out in the world in November, when Bay Web Designs will be 5 years old.
Sharon plans to go the print on demand route and would love to hear from any readers who have already done this. Please leave a comment below if you have any helpful information for her.
Do get in touch if you have any news you’d like to share with WfHW readers in Work from Home News. It could be about your business, pieces of kit you highly recommend, useful things you’ve discovered eg apps, tech tools, websites, books, or excellent customer service you’ve experienced and think we should know about.
Or maybe like Sharon you’d like to ask for advice and feedback before you embark on a new project. Don’t be shy now – keep the Work from Home News coming in!
