Help with home working

Does a furry, feathered or fishy friend give you help with home working?

Help with home workingWorking from home would be a lonely experience for many of us if we didn’t have help with home working from four-legged friends.

Last week Charlotte Evans, who runs Cottontails, an online toy shop, sent me this photo for the Home Office gallery and it made me laugh out loud. Rudolph is the first home working rabbit I’ve come across, and looks intent on business. No doubt he is making sure Charlotte is doing justice to her aim to ‘offer one of the best selections of soft toy bunnies in the UK’.

You can read more about Charlotte and Rudolph and why she requires lots of will power to keep working during the afternoon slump on Home Offices Gallery 6.

Lots of readers share their home office with dogs and last week Freelance Advisor [now Crunch] revealed that their editor Jon Norris’s post Five freelancing tips I’ve learned from my dog has become their most-shared post ever.

Recently Shedworking asked what readers’ garden offices smell of, and Lynn Moorhouse replied ‘Wish I had a garden office, but my usual workspace smells of dog’, which many home workers can no doubt identify with.

Help with home working - Mr TaffieTamsin Orr tweeted me this picture of the four-legged friend who gives her help with home working by providing IT support – ‘Mr Taffie was assisting me get my head around Windows 8! We both had the same expression!’

My interview with Lily the home office kitten showed she had a firm paw on San Sharma’s home office activities at an early age. And then there’s Danilon, the Spanish grey stallion, who doesn’t so much provide help with home working as keep the whole B&B operation running from his mission control in the stables.

Does a small friend keep you company when you work from home? We’d like to hear more about who is keeping you going and providing help with home working.

  1. I really must send you that photo of my pet lemon grass. He got a trim yesterday (it’s going in a stir fry).
