Tomorrows Office: How Work Environments are Changing Faster than Ever Before.


The concept of working from home has always existed to some extent, but the Covid-19 pandemic has forced this trend to expand dramatically. As a result, some companies are either continuing to offer remote work options or insisting that employees return to the workplace full-time. With the cost of living skyrocketing, including rent, it’s natural to wonder whether working from home will increase back to pandemic levels.

The pandemic has undoubtedly changed the way we work, and it’s fascinating to see how companies are adapting to this new reality. While some are eager to return to the traditional office environment, others are embracing the benefits of remote work. As the cost of living continues to rise, it’s understandable that many employees are looking for ways to cut costs, and working from home is an excellent solution. However, it remains to be seen whether this trend will continue in the long term.


One potential solution to the challenges posed by remote work is the idea of shared office space. By splitting the week between two companies, it’s possible to reduce costs while still maintaining a physical presence in the workplace. This approach could be particularly useful for smaller companies that don’t have the resources to maintain a full-time office space.

Overall, the future of work is uncertain, but it’s clear that the pandemic has accelerated many existing trends. Whether we continue to work from home or return to the traditional office environment, it’s essential to remain adaptable and open to new ideas. By doing so, we can ensure that we’re prepared for whatever the future holds.

Accessible play for all.


Play is an essential part of childhood, and every child deserves access to it. Unfortunately, many playgrounds and outdoor activities are not designed with accessibility in mind, leaving children with disabilities or impairments unable to participate fully. This lack of inclusivity can cause feelings of exclusion and isolation in children, which can have long-term consequences on their mental health.

The Importance of Accessible Play

Play is crucial for a child’s physical, emotional, cognitive, and social development. It helps them learn important skills such as problem-solving, communication, creativity, and teamwork. Play also promotes physical activity and healthy lifestyles. However, many children with disabilities or impairments face barriers when it comes to accessing play.

These websites have some great ideas, and advice.

Learning to say ‘no’.

How often do you say “no” to things that would interfere with your goals?


How often do you turn down opportunities that could impede your progress towards achieving your goals? Personally, I am still working on mastering this skill and am committed to improving it. I think self-doubt is one big part of this issue, and a get out clause can be an excuse to avoid that risk of failure.

Sat on a bus


I’m sat on a bus winding its way through town and country, whilst I can hear the excitement of chatter and laughter coming from the school children on board. There are roadworks everywhere, but still the driver navigates the route and diversions with confidence and ease. It won’t be long now till I reach my destination. Thankyou driver.

A secret ability

What’s a secret skill or ability you have or wish you had?


A secret ability that I’d like to have, would be to be able to instantly transport myself to where I want instantly. This would make an incredible difference to my life. No more relying on others to drive me, or worrying about issues with public transport, or stairs, etc….. I’d just instantly get to where I wanted to go.

I mean, just imagine how much battery using I’d save on my wheelchair! I’d have plenty of it for pottering about the house, walking the dog, and exploring new places once I have teleported to my desired location.

No more worries if I forget to take something with me. I can just zip zap back and get it quickly.

It wouldn’t matter if I wanted to go somewhere hours away, I’d just pop there for the day and no long journey. No hanging around waiting for the next bus or train, no ‘standing’ out in the rain.

No accessible loo? I’d just teleport to where I knew there was one available. Obviously I wouldn’t teleport right into the cubicle, if someone was already in there I wouldn’t know quite what to do!!

Yes, I could have wished for the ability to walk, but hey, this sounds much more exciting after all.

Teaching kids about good money habits.

Developing good money habits from childhood is crucial for a lifetime of financial success. However, the question remains: whose responsibility is it to teach this essential skill? Should it be left solely to parents, or should schools also play a role in financial education?


It is widely accepted that parents are the primary educators of their children. Therefore, it is their responsibility to instill good money habits in their children from a young age. Parents can teach their children the value of money, how to budget, and the importance of saving. These lessons can be reinforced through practical activities such as giving children an allowance and encouraging them to save a portion of it.

However, schools also have a role to play in financial education. Many young adults leave school without a basic understanding of personal finance, which can lead to financial difficulties later in life. Schools can teach students about budgeting, saving, investing, and credit management. These skills are essential for navigating the complex financial landscape of adulthood.

In conclusion, developing good money habits is a lifelong skill that should be taught from childhood. While parents are the primary educators, schools can also play a vital role in financial education. By working together, parents and schools can ensure that the next generation is equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary for financial success.

Sunday thought.


When life isn’t going your way and you feel frustrated and deflated, it’s important to allow yourself time to process these emotions. However, it’s equally important to not dwell on them for too long. Instead, give yourself a little push towards a more positive attitude and take constructive and optimistic steps towards improving your situation once again. Remember, setbacks are a natural part of life, but it’s how we respond to them that truly defines us. So, take a deep breath, gather your strength, and move forward with determination and resilience.

Not only does this toy stimulate his mind and provide healthy mental stimulation, it also offers a perfect opportunity for us to bond as we play together. The fact that my furry companion has taken such a liking to something which can offer him so much enrichment is truly a wonderful feeling. I am excited to see continued growth in our relationship as he continues to explore and enjoy this incredible treasure.
