home. work.

Three me's!!! Mrs S is...delighted?

A day in the life...although it was announced yesterday that as part of the construction industry I can get back to some "proper" work next week, rather than "working" from home.

For those of you that curious enough to wonder what the third me is putting on the record player, it was this:

Instant Fav! You in triplicate.
April 21st, 2020  
A slice (really several slices) of you- fabulous edit.
April 21st, 2020  
Clever and your third has good taste!
April 21st, 2020  
Poor Mrs S.. well done..

April 21st, 2020  
I love it. But did you stay 2m away from each other?
April 21st, 2020  
gosh you are terribly busy!
April 21st, 2020  
Good to see your iMac, always knew you had good taste. Ducking below the parapet now.
April 21st, 2020  
OMG - you have triplicated yourself - plus three light shades and three climbers? Very cool.
April 21st, 2020  
@kiwinanna Three light shades over the table so that we can play snooker after eating...and all good interior design should be done in odd numbers ;)
@golftragic Nothing but the best of course ;)
@koalagardens I feel like I've been bone idle...
@jamibann I think I can give myself special dispensation ;)
@julzmaioro I do feel for her...actually, all of three of us do.
@rjb71 Thank you kindly - on both counts :)
@joysabin Thank you very much :)
@redy4et Thank you so much :)
April 21st, 2020  
Looks like you have been plenty busy!
April 21st, 2020  
@swguevin2 Not as busy as I'm used to, but that's to be expected at the moment!
April 21st, 2020  
@golftragic I had to laugh at this - be proud - be iMac. Good spotting too.
April 21st, 2020  
good to see you are an apple man as well as vinyl - my two favourite things indoors!
April 21st, 2020  
Loving this. You're very clever...and I'm even impressed by your album choice!
April 21st, 2020  
Looks like a comfy “workplace”... Perfectly done, but this is no surprise!
April 21st, 2020  
Keeping yourself busy I see
April 21st, 2020  
This is just fabulous :)
April 21st, 2020  
Nice slice of life ... fav
April 21st, 2020  
Beautiful work! Interesting slice of life
April 21st, 2020  
three of you have gotta be better than one. the one on the right calmly reading surely never puts on a gas mask and does unspeakable things with skulls?
April 21st, 2020  
Fairly sure this just shouldn't be allowed.
April 21st, 2020  
The epitome of a multi-tasker. Thumbs up on the Apple product from me as well. I like how the day planner marks the date of this photo.
April 21st, 2020  
that's clever!!
April 21st, 2020  
Love the edit and the sense of the 'work' that you engage in, as well as how you entertain yourself during work hours. A lot of fun in exploring your image.
April 21st, 2020  
@taffy To be honest there's not a lot of work going on...
@30pics4jackiesdiamond Thanks very much :)
@lyndemc Thank you kindly - nothing but the best ;)
@humphreyhippo I wholeheartedly agree!
@pistache He's the one you have to watch...nothing but trouble
@caterina Thanks very much :)
@pdulis Thank you kindly :)
@kgolab Thank you so much :)
@kjarn They keep paying me so I keep doing things...
@domenicododaro It's doing to job for now...it's certainly close to the fridge ;)
@tinley23 Thank you very much - it's a fab album :)
@koalagardens Nothing but the best ;)
@kiwinanna @golftragic Sadly my work supplies me with a Windows based system...it's clunky, slow, glitchy. Give me apple any day.
April 21st, 2020  
A great way to tell the story of your time at home. Well executed.
April 21st, 2020  
Fascinating insight into your working life.....you do take over everywhere...I hope this is your proper office & you haven’t spread all over the house...Mrs S will be falling all over you!
Forrestry industry can start too so my son will be itching to get back to work too I expect! Well he has a fencing business so I imagine that comes under that label.
April 21st, 2020  
Love your edit, am glad you're in work clothes!
April 21st, 2020  
@happypat This is the dining room...we're both working on the table so going back will be a blessing for both of us!
@lynbonn Thanks very much :)
April 21st, 2020  
@fbailey The secret to working from home is to keep your normal hours and get dressed!!!
April 21st, 2020  
@graemestevens My secret to retirement is doing the exact opposite!
April 21st, 2020  
the middle you does seem to be particularly hard at work. Not so sure about the other two. All about the balance. Which, thinking about it works very well in your composition with the three lamps and the three creatures climbing ropes in the background.
April 21st, 2020  
@helenhall Me? Balanced? Okay then...and yeah, that guy working is letting the rest of us down...
April 21st, 2020  
Very cool shot!
But oh my 3 of you.................your poor wife!
April 21st, 2020  
@radiogirl She doesn't know which one of us to tell off...
April 21st, 2020  
@graemestevens Oh good grief, what an insult to give you that stuff. I've been a Mac girl since the '80s and we always used to have Macs at work too till just before I retired when the Dean of our faculty decided to save money and we'd all have to have PCs. I told her if she made me have a PC not to unpack it as I'd only use it as a doorstop. Since I was retiring within the 3-year replacement cycle and was old and cranky I was allowed to have a Mac instead. I think they've gone back to Apple stuff again by now, but not sure.
April 22nd, 2020  
Master of multitask8ng and brilliant scene
April 22nd, 2020  
@golftragic I do keep trying to convince work that we need to go to Macs but so far no luck :(
@jgpittenger Master of making it look like I know what I'm doing ;)
April 22nd, 2020  
@graemestevens Bunch of ignorami.
April 22nd, 2020  
Wonderful composition with the triplets. Does your wife know about your dark side? You look so........normal. I've never heard of the Courteeners but I really like their music.
April 22nd, 2020  
@joysfocus She knows...she's very understanding and tolerant ;)
April 22nd, 2020  
Yikes - you look so .....normal. Now I'm worried about the guy next door. Love this - it's so relaxing. Because your latest victim is taken care of in the basement? Could we see a shot of the basement, please?
April 22nd, 2020  
Wot... no Docs?
April 22nd, 2020  
@vignouse Believe it or not, those are Docs...
@365karly1 It's the normal looking ones that you need to worry about....
April 22nd, 2020  
Love it. Well done. In our case, despite strict isolation, the construction industry still worked. At work, they were groups in close contact. When leaving the building, they had to keep a social distance, which is very strange.
April 22nd, 2020  
@haskar That's very odd...
April 22nd, 2020  
Graeme, its all been said. fav
April 23rd, 2020  
@gamelee Thank you very much :)
April 23rd, 2020  
Fabulous, love it. Well done
April 23rd, 2020  
@bizziebeeme Thank you very much :)
April 23rd, 2020  
brilliant work ... I'm amazed at what a pleasant, friendly, nice looking face you have ... nothing at all like your creepy pictures! fav
April 24th, 2020  
@lynnz And that would be a false sense of security....
April 24th, 2020  
Fascinating image on many levels! My eye was first drawn by your composition to your shoes worn inside the house and on the table (I'm Japanese). And the fact that it's not immediately recognizable as "you" because we have come to expect you to look completely different (you know!). But the composition is very interesting for its threes: yous, lamps, climbers, chairs, windows (sort of), and things to read. Loved listening to the music while appreciating your photo. And that diary up front -- clever clever clever. You're part of the construction industry. Like, you could make a squirrel picnic bench?
April 24th, 2020  
@jyokota Shoes inside the house is not unusual over here but on the table....that's not right under normal circumstances but it was the only way I could get the composition to work to my liking. The table certainly got a good clean afterwards - sitting on or even leaning ones posterior against the table is an absolute and definite no no. The threes were accidental - I actually wanted 4 of me in the shot but it turns out my humble abode is too small!!
As for the construction, I'm at the paint end of the process so I can certainly make the table look pretty :)
April 24th, 2020  
Fav! I wouldn't mind turning my husband into 3...one that goes to work as much as he does, one to stay home and take care of the honey-do list and one to travel with me when we get the OK it is safe again to do so! :)
April 26th, 2020  
@gardenfolk I couldn't think pf anything worse than 3 of me, and thats me saying that ;)
April 26th, 2020  
hanging out with all your friends ;)
April 27th, 2020  
@tracyleaoh We all like each other...most days
April 27th, 2020  
Confused which one is gas mask man, or bag man, and who is the real you or are you real at all!!!!!!!
