I have a study. In the summer it gets too bright in the morning sun to work on the computer without pulling down the blinds which rather defeats the object for me and in the winter it gets quite chilly without the big radiator on. The Conservatory gets wonderfully warm whenever the sun shines but, again, it's very bright when using a computer screen. The living room has no view although it does have my wonderful and homely roll-top desk: it's a good place to write letters in the winter. My kitchen, on the other hand, is always warm and, if needs be, I can move the laptop screen out of the direct sun without losing my view of the sea and across the valley and bay. So when I'm on my laptop I'm usually sitting in the kitchen. That means I'm usually looking out of the window as well. I really am a fortunate fellow and for that I never cease to be thankful.
Especially as I can watch the changing weather and seasons and the birds: in this case a young blackbird having a bath in the garden waterfall.
