Finally it’s Friday and I get some time to play with my own projects. I’m sitting at work at the moment and wondering how come I manage to achieve much more while sitting at my desk, then I do at home.

And I think one of the major factors that comes into play here is the chair I’m actually sitting on.
You see, I actually have a study at home which has decent office chairs, both for myself and my wife; but as it’s in the attic, we don’t tend to spend much time there. However, I have noticed that I work better there than when sitting on the sofa.
