I like working from home, and a few (maybe more) years ago, when snowed in for a week I wrote a massive chunk of the project I was working on because I get distracted more at work than at home. Phones ringing, colleagues chatting, bosses wanting meetings, emails, you name it. I have none of that at home. But eventually I need to talk to someone...anyone?
