Not a Real Home Office Tour

Although this is the week for home office tours on Show Us Your Life Friday at Kelly's Korner blog, I feel I am participating under false pretenses today.  You see, we don't have a dedicated home office at our red house.  Like many people with several children (we have four), we found that bedroom space was more necessary than a whole room for an office.  Maybe one day!

The kids have desks in their rooms for doing their homework, and apart from that we use our dining room table and a small desk in our family room for computer work.  I like to have computers in public areas rather than bedrooms so that I can supervise what people (read: my children) are using them for.

Today I will feature our dining room (already written about here) and the family room study corner.

I try to keep the office area in our dining room fairly minimal and well-organised.  Apart from the computer I have stacked in-and-out trays, a pen holder and two boxes, one for bills and one for taxes.  My favourite thing is the round mousepad with birds and flowers on it.

Not having much on the table means that it can be cleared away super fast if we need it for other purposes, like say, eating.

In the pictures below you can see the computer corner in the family room.  This is one corner of a large single room that is kitchen, breakfast room (except we eat all family meals there) and family room.  You can see other pictures here and here

The desk is an old roll top desk from which we removed the top.  I like to keep a couple of cute notebooks by the computer for writing lists, making notes and recording ideas.

 Thank you for visiting this week.  I hope you have a lovely weekend.
