Music and Productivity

Working on documents, articles and other paper works seems a little less stressful and even enjoyable when there is music playing in the background. I guess it’s true that music can improve one’s productivity because it relaxes your mind so ideas flow uninterrupted. When you are at home, you can play music straight out of your speakers and even enjoy it loudly, but if you are working in the office you might want to buy a headphone so that you will not disturb others who may not like the kind of music that you are listening to.

Looking for Table Cloth

Its been sometime since I last posted here. Several events  happened during those times. Some were pleasant, others not! But all in all, it happened for a reason – good or bad but at least we are moving on – life after all has to move on!

Today is Saturday, hubby is traveling. Kids are out playing with their friends. And me, here in  this small corner tinkering the keyboard. So many things expired – during my absence online!  A lot of my blogs have expired!  Hosting – left unpaid! I guess it also happened for a reason!  I was actually planning for sometime to mellow down on my online presence.

Anyway, enough for my emo-talk. The house is in a mess and must be fixed asap!  Due to the recent typhoon – the roof needs to be fixed. There’s a water problem in the masters bedroom. I need to look for a good table cloth as the table top  now is showing its wear and tear. Though it still looks okay but a nice table cloth would be a bonus. Can you recommend a good website?
