    Do you ever get carried away and spend hours on here? I can see how it can easily be done. Do any of you have a cut off point ??? I think i may get a timer !!!!!!!!!!!!

    wake up daughter sort her breakfast, come on here while she eats
    Then i have 30 mins before little one arrives, so naturally i ignore the dishes and come on here
    Then she sleeps for an hour so i ermmmm come back on

    I don't come on much at night tho unless i need to check something

    I come on at lunchtime when the los are having there nap, then usually at night I sit with laptop on when watching the tv cos if I just sit on the chair with no laptop, book or sudoku I fall asleep

    I only have schoolies, so I'm here quite alot during school hours! And in the evening when my son is in bed I come back on too!

    During school holidays, I disappear off the face of the planet as I'm too busy during the day and too tired in the evening!!!

    My internet is permanently connected during the day so I leave it on and come in when the mindees are asleep and then rush to get everything sorted for after school children - like now!
