I’ve found it definitely has ups and downs.

It’s obviously nice to have no commute, and to wear slightly more comfortable clothing. To be honest, I do think I’ve been a bit more productive – I chat to colleagues more than I realised!

But I do miss the social aspect of the office, getting to see people regularly. It’s also annoying because what used to be a quick pop along the office for a simple question now has to either be an email (and a potentially lengthy wait) or a whole meeting.

Probably would find it easier working from home if I could go out somewhere afterwards…struggling with no pub! But I certainly hope I can keep working from home at least a few days a week when all this is over.
