Many of us have been thrown into working from home situations, and it’s fair to say we are not prepared.
My room barely fits my bed and I have housemates, so exactly where am I meant to fit a desk and ergonomical chair, I ask? I’m not, which is why I’ve moved into my housemate’s hammock.
She has the big room with plenty of space for a desk, so I refuse to let her fight me on this.
I’m not the only one thinking outside the box either. As we do in the modern world, a bunch of people have shared their creative work from home set-ups with the interweb. These are their stories.

And, of course, the fluffers that can’t understand why you’re not paying attention to them 24/7:
