How To Create The Perfect Office Space

If an Englishman’s home is his castle, then surely his office is his throne – apart from that other throne room. Regardless of whether you’re working from home or have a desk at work, making sure your office space is as ergonomic and enjoyable to be at should be a priority.

Having a good space to work usually leads to having a good space to think in, and from my experience having a cluttered desk usually leads to a cluttered experience and a cluttered mind. That being said, here are some things to answer your office problems.

Indeed the history of drinking alcohol extends back to at least the early Neolithic period (around 10,000 BC), as attested to by the discovery of beer jugs from towards the end of the Stone Age. Before I look at some products to augment your modern-day merriment, let’s take a brief look at the history of alcohol.

Valentine’s Day Gifts | A Brief History

Originally an annual Roman festival for lovers, Valentine’s day became a Christian holiday to celebrate the legend of St. Valentine, who was thought to have been executed for performing marriage ceremonies in secret during a ban under the rule of Roman Emperor Claudius II in the third century AD. St. Valentine is thought to have died on 14th February. Whilst imprisoned awaiting his fate, it is also thought that the priest fell in love with the jailer’s daughter and signed off his final correspondence to her, “From your Valentine”. A legend was born.
