Backpain. Discuss. Okay, where do I start? I have had it on and off for the past three years, I hate it, I am reduced to swearing every time I sit down, stand up, move, I sound like I have tourettes. It makes me miserable and I have it right now. I want rid of it. However I had a lightbulb moment earlier and I am ashamed to say it should have happened a long time ago (the lightbulb moment) – I have identified probably one of the main reasons I get back pain (that and a dodgy op in 2009)…I sit like a freaking contorted croissant when im using my laptop (which is a LOT of the time), hunched over/ bent double, twisted to the side, keeping the laptop away from B (who I secretly think is attempting to float his dot.com company on the internet). I could really kick myself for not realising that sitting this way is a sure fire way to aggrivate a bad back, as a good friend would say ‘who’s the dick?!’
Any hows, this got me to start thinking that we really do need a home study/ office or at least a desk to sit at, (Mr Egg does not fare much better, he leans over onto a side cabinet whilst sitting in our nursing chair that glides…it may come as no surprise he suffers with his back too) so I started planning what I would like our office home study to look like and what chair I would pick if money were no object. So, here is my lust list of chairs (this was quite difficult as there are like a million chairs that I love, but the rule was that the chair actually needed to be ergonomically sound and be suitable for a study) and whilst we are on the subject, I have chucked in some dream home studies*.
* I’m really pissed that I can’t find a picture of one of my all time favourite offices…should have saved a copy. It is Designer Erin Gates home office. Ghost chair, zebra rug, kelly green accents and a beautiful large glass desk. Unfortunately I didn’t save the image and Erin’s portfolio has recently been updated. I hope it turns up again in blog land.
