To tell you how to spend LESS time on Mumsnet?

Have been feeling less than motivated at work recently, due to bonkers boss, impossible targets and the fact that I am working notice before starting a new job soon.

The temptation to sit on Mumsnet during working hours has the potential to get me into serious trouble.

Have recently discovered focalfilter which lets you block specific sites for specific amounts of time, e.g. 4 hours.

If only I had known about this when studying for my degree

"The post where you called MNHQ the gestapo has been deleted though"

That. Fair nuff, though it was struck through.

Olivia has took agin me tonight

Truly, I haven't. I reinstated your post! Glad you are feeling badass though

But to be clear strikethrough is for witticisms not veiling insults. Thanks

Weird thread

You know I was actually going to start a thread asking if such a thing was available. Really good idea. Am going to sign up. Sorry Olivia!

It's alright Olivia, I am famous in RL for insulting people when I think I am being funny smile

At least Olivia must be feeling better now to be that quick smile

CheddarGorgeous Fri 22-Feb-13 23:02:27

And now I'm in most active, the excitement never ends <faints>

making salt dough with your dc will take your mind off MN for a considerable length of time, especially if you let them paint the salt dough models afterwards, for added distraction place trays of poster paint all over the floor and adopt two dogs, to be certain to get things just right one of the dogs should be white, the other should be super fast [wibble]

D0in agree, but when you're sitting in an office in front of a computer with zero motivation or interest, Mumsnet just cries out to be browsed. Next thing, it's 5 pm and nothing has been done...

Olivia's always Mnetting at work and he manages not to get fired.

Kitten block is really good Sunny if you want to block the Daily Stale.

You can only download it if you're not on benefits and can prove your UK citizenship for the last six generations.

All I need now is my first Mumsnet biscuit and I will have the full set of MN battle trophies...

<hopeful>

bedmonster Fri 22-Feb-13 23:13:33

Ah Thanks Agent grin

But actually, now I feel a raging hunger for 3 giant bags of malteasers and sour haribos. And the room's sort of rocking confused

CheddarGorgeous Fri 22-Feb-13 23:14:48

Agent grin genius

Olivia - you're a MAN? shock

almostanotherday Fri 22-Feb-13 23:17:13

I was just typing that!

I never knew Olivia was a man either???

almostanotherday Fri 22-Feb-13 23:18:18

Perhaps RL name is Oliver but after too many gins he got signed up with the wrong name?

OliviaKnowsBestMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 22-Feb-13 23:19:24

For the love of god, aren't you lot in enough trouble already?!?!
