For many office workers, the current situation has forced us into a corner - quite literally. Since mid-March, I’ve been working out-of-office and dragging myself from my bed to my makeshift desk in the corner of my bedroom, instead of from my bed to the Royton-based OFM office. As you can imagine, there's plenty of pros and cons to working from home, and today I'd like to explore both sides, and how I’ve personally overcome some of the negatives.

You only have to spend five minutes on Facebook to see an abundance of silly errors that are varying degrees of irritating, depending on your outlook. Me? It bothers me - in fact, it infuriates me! As the son of a former teacher, so much emphasis was placed on SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar, for those who love an acronym) and having had this conversation about 'bad' English with a few people, the sum total of advice is 'to...
