I’ve lived in Melbourne’s Northern suburbs (Melbourne, Australia) for over 25 years. In a former life I did things like manage law libraries, maintain a ceramic art practice, study art curatorship part-time, feed an intense novel-reading habit, cycle everywhere, and dance Argentine tango three to four nights a week. Then I had a baby. Now most of my time is devoted to keeping one step ahead of the-pre-schooler-who-never-sleeps – and writing historical romance!
Got laptop. Love hacks. Setting up my home workspace for my new-found the-four-year-old-is-at-kinda time :)
My starting point is my 11inch Macbook Air. I heart everything about it except for the crick I get in my neck after long periods of typing. Time for a makeover…
1) Take two egg cartons.
Ta-da! Laptop riser /stand with good inbuilt ventilation, channels to keep keyboard cable tidy, and at perfect height for a short person.
Time to hack: about a minute.
Cost: about 10cm worth of masking tape
OK. Back to work…
