If you had a choice between being based at home or in an office somewhere which one would you prefer?
I have been offered a full time job and I can choose where to base myself as the main office is an hour away.
Both locations I will be the only person there, but if I work from home and dd has a day off school she can stay at home while I work.

Home. I work from home about 50% of the time, it's brilliant, I do more hours because I don't have to factor in the daily commute. I generally still get DH to drop dd at dc so I start work at 7:30ish and finish about 4:30. I used to be very disciplined, as in showered dressed before DH leaves the house so I was ready to start my day, but at 6mths preg that's slipped a bit.

Home for me! I'm an introvert and like my own company and love working from home. As long as you are disciplined and not distracted by things around the house then it can work great. Saving 2hrs a day in travel time is a huge personal gain.

Definitely home but it requires discipline. I've worked from home part time for years and once you get your rhythm it's brilliant!

Office for me. I enjoy getting away from home and putting on my work clothes and facing the day.

Home, but only if there is a designated work space where i can get in the "zone" because otherwise i get distracted

I would love to say home, but I think I need to be in a work environment to keep focused.
I think a combination of home and office would be ideal. A friend of mine does one day a week (Wednesdays) in the office and the remaining 4 days she's home based. Sounds pretty ideal to me, but you would really have to be disciplined and not easily distracted in order to get the work done.

Thanks everyone. I have my own work area downstairs and as long as that area is clean i can block everything out. I have become fairly disciplined due to studying online at home.
It would be good to leave the house each day but it would also be handy to work from home if my anxiety flares up at any time and I can at least stay home... will chat to the owners a bit more I think. Need to find daycare for ds now and work out what to do about after school activities with dd
