As lockdown eases, many of us are returning to our offices, having been working remotely for months. Rachel Farrell tells us why she can't wait to get back, and Amy Lynch explains why she'd be happy at home forever.

Rachel Farrell says yes:

“I miss my desk. I miss my chair!”

Who'd have thought we'd miss office life? Before Covid, there were days when you'd roll out of bed and think, wouldn't it be great to work from the bed? Hair unbrushed, pyjamas still on and not having to deal with people in person. When lockdown began, suddenly I found myself living that life - and I'm not enjoying it as much as I thought I would.
