OMG YES! My other half tried the "well you've been home all day" line - yes I've been home and BUSY!

Does my nut in. WORKING is WORKING wherever you do it.

You're not on call. You ARE unavailable. I do potter about, put a wash on, do a 5 minute hoover etc but that's no different from talking shite at the water cooler/making tea in the kitchen in the office.

My DH calls it a day off. Again, does my NUT IN!

I work from home for the most part & do fit in household tasks in my lunch break.

The most annoying thing was a neighbour redirecting their parcels to me because I was “always in”.

Preach! I get this too, I just say no I'm at work!

I must say though, I feel incredibly lucky to work from home full time, it's an utter blessing!

I WORK from home. My office is in a converted garage.

This does not mean I am AT home and, therefore, available for random, "only take a few minutes" jobs like watering the plants, nipping down to the shops and taking grandkids to sports practice. I'm WORKING.

It's great not having to commute any more but I do miss being unavailable.
