Working from wherever is great and horrible

My profession is essentially marketing, social media marketing to be more accurate. I specialize in the photography sector because that's what I'm passionate about and also something I've always dabbled with. I figure if you're going to work for a brand to promote their product to photographers, you should at least know about the products, right? So, what I do all day every day is find interesting content, post it, watch how people react, give them some form of interaction back, start conversations, mess about with photographic gear and make photographs.

If you sat and watched me work for an hour, I could go from laughing at what someone's posted on a Facebook page to photographing a camera bag or tripod with something or other in or on it to show size or usage. 

I've been doing this independently for four years, running my own business with its own books and tax etc... During this time I've been working from home or, in limited cases a cafe. I've been fortunate to have an office and space at home to work and I've always said that its tough to work from home with kids, but that I'm fortunate to be able to work from wherever I am...

At the moment I am "wherever I am" and I've been here for a few weeks - I love being here, the boys love seeing their grandparents, the weather is good (I prefer cold, but a bit of warm never killed an... oh, wait, it did... but you know what I mean) but in short, I'm working from a kitchen table and its driving me absolutely crazy. 

Working from 'wherever' can be amazing and flexible and I want to smash something...
