The gift also included a traditional pickled fish recipe from Chef Kerry which was perfectly timed as I planned to make it tonight. The recipe recommended Cape Bream but also yellow tail which I planned on making which is another Cape pickled fish favourite.
It’s been a couple of weeks since I am working in my new home office and I must admit – it has brought so much happiness and inspiration!
The best part is that I can now “leave work”, lock up my office and “go home”. It may be a few footsteps apart but work is now work and home is now home.
Thanks to the pandemic, up until recently I was working from our living room and Kurt was working from the kitchen. It was just getting too overwhelming and that’s when we decided to convert our granny flat into our office space.
If you haven’t, Kurt and I basically decided to declutter the granny flat on our property, which just became a storage space over the years, into our home office.
Inside one of the rooms, there’s was an old cupboard that didn’t look great at all. Kurt and I were about to break it down and get rid of it. However, thanks to Studio Taryn B who I’ve collaborated with on this project, convinced me to keep it.
Her idea was brilliant – the cupboard is not just my office storage space but also has a pegboard storage solution for my home gym equipment.
