I spend an enormous time behind my computer, and for a very long time I used to work with my laptop on my lap from a sofa, a chair or (don’t shout) my bed, if I was working late at night… These are bad habits for Poppy. So at the beginning of the year I made a big change to my working life and gave myself a present of a dedicated working space. I’m not a fan of the word ‘office’, as it conjures up images of grey files, corporateness and Ricky Gervais (whom I actually think is brilliant – have you seen him sing on Sesame Street?) I also don’t like the word ‘study’ as it reminds me of being rubbish at revising for my GSCE’s and the panic of not knowing which king married which queen and who’s head got chopped off when.
