Working from home can be great for improved work/life balance and productivity, but it takes a certain type of person to really make it work – if you’re easily distracted or have trouble working alone, it might be the best working environment for you.
There’s also the added problem that you never really get to leave the house, and can easily spend days on end between the same four walls. Sometimes, the only respite from this lonely existence is when your other half gets in from work themselves.
But what if they work at home too? Would living in each other’s pockets day-after-day be enough to drive the two of you crazy?

Summer storms have been causing flash floods across the UK and the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for western Scotland and northern England. Hopefully, you’ve managed to avoid the worst of the flooding, or protected your property before the rain fall.

If you’ve not yet fallen foul of the flood waters though, there’s still time to take the necessary steps to minimize the risk of you being washed out of your home, office, or both if you’re one of the thousands of business owners who run their operation from home.
If you do work from home this can be a disaster to both your personal and professional life, so you need to take steps to minimise the risk – the better prepared you are, the less damage your property is likely to suffer.
