I work from home.

I have meetings, appointments, I walk the dog with friends, and the teenagers arrive home before 3pm.

I really do love my few hours home alone.

Do you walk the dog during work time or is that your job?

I walk the dog whenever I need a break from work, so some days that's at 8.30am and some days 6.30pm...

Like Kins, I like working from home. I have meetings with real people, I have phone calls with people all over the place. I choose when I work and everyone is happy so long as it all gets done. It would have to be a really, really good job for me to consider going back into an office.

I was so lonely years ago that I used to dial the 800 number just to hear the Bell telephone lady announce the time
