Unless you have permission from higher powers I wouldn't. Is there a boss you could approve it with?

I wouldn't.

ninkynonky when you say 'higher powers', do you mean her boss or G-d himself? ;)

I did wonder when I typed it whether anyone else would notice the faint (initially unintentional) allusion to those of religious bent having an extra day off! (I don't necessarily disapprove before I get jumped, but the opportunity for a play on words was too good to miss.)

If you normally work until 5 and it's now 415? I'd leave.

It won't look very professional if someone does phone will it? Are you in charge of the department? In the current economic climate it's probably not a good idea to admit that you haven't got any urgent work to do - your job could be the first to be cut if necessary. Sounds like you aren't that stressed at work if you can find time to mumsnet anyway grin.

I'd do it.

In fact, I just have grin

I've been working at home today. I have genuinely worked. 7:30am to 4pm with a half hour break. Half a training manual completed. Only I had to work indoor as we've no garden sad.

I wouldn't do it. There are so few jobs around that I wouldn't put mine at risk.
