Well, since 3pm anyway. I am going to take work home and catch up though. but I seem to be addicted.... is there some sort of support group for this?!

You're essentially being paid for not doing anything. Is that really fair on the company you work for? No, I don't think so. Don't ever apply for The Apprentice.

I only meant to pop on for an hour after LO went to bed but got carried away. DH is out at a sportsmans dinner so I'm taking advantage of indulging my 'addiction'.

Its a dangerous addiction, mines soo much worse now I have a decent phone... Park is now somewher I don't mind!

Ha hah! not back until now! :)

IprivateI erm, not really. I work 3 days a week and am paid 9-5. I work about 7 or 8 hours of unpaid overtime per week, and I don't get a lunch hour either. As long as I am productive for 21 hours any week then i have worked what i'm paid for, everything else is excess.

Is that really fair on me? No, I don't think so, but that's the culture I have chosen to work in and am trained for. If you think you should work only the hours you're paid for then don't ever apply for The Apprentice - which is not really the height of business excellence to be honest! :)

I've been on and off all day today. promised myself that I was going to go and do something more productive but it's like a big black hole that sucks you in and forces you to stay until you get rsi from all the furious typing.
