Working from the garden

A year on, and working from the garden has evolved.

A f£$%"#g year of Working From the Garden‽

Working from the garden

A year ago I started Working from the Garden. What a ‽‽‽‽ of a year.

A year and a bit ago I was in Seattle, stumbling over a prophetic quotation:

"The 20th Century was about getting around. The 21st Century will be about staying in a place worth staying in."

James Howard Kunstler

c r o s s o a k had more posts last year than in any other. I wonder why.

Looking back to last March I shared these stats:

In the UK, today is day 53. 8,077 cases, 422 deaths. Twelve days since I was last in the office. Four days since the schools shut. Six days since H came home from university. One day since the government said "shutdown".

The government reported total deaths for the UK as of yesterday was 124,797. Wikipedia's list of UK causalities of war provides some context. It's greater than all UK civilian deaths from conflicts since 1900.

I'm very fortunate to be working, and even more so to be able to work from a garden, but when we look back on this period, I wonder what we will have learnt.

The Shortest Day

Shortest Day

Working from the garden on the shortest day of the year. In other years I'd be on a bike longing for lighter evenings.

Three views from around the office. One day I may get round to painting. Any recommendations for the colo(u)r?

The View From The Pod

Sat in the pod admiring the view and getting distracted from the work I should be doing.

Pod

Jon built an awesome pod for us in the garden. Sparks by Tom. Network by me. Views by God. It's the work from garden plan for the winter. Brrrrrrrr.

A new spot to work from

New spot to work

This thing appears to be going on a bit longer than most folks expected. So some commute $€¥£ diverted into a pod space place in the garden.

Morning Coffee Work

Last amzn wfh coffee

End of something, before the start of something else. One more benefit of working from the garden during a lockdown [1] is that a catch-up coffee has two views, one this end, one that end.

Home Office

The home office is quite distracting. Bird song on conference calls is quite soothing.

Weather is nice, so working from garden rather than working from home.
