Working from home isn’t all joy, happiness and getting sh*t done. Distractions are lurking in each corner. The bathroom that needs a scrub, the toilet paper that needs refilling. What is that, you’re nearly out of coffee? Oh no! Before you ring the alarms, you run off to the store. Gone is your focus… But at least now you will have caffeine☕️
