I have noticed that the number of people on line seems to go down here as it does on my site. So does everyone use the internet at work or what?

I cannot use the internet at work - just at home - must admit if I was able to use it at work, work wouldn't get done. I am on downsizer at different times, just depends when the PC is available as Lundy does a lot of catching up on his work e-mails from home.

Unless you're jema and then he's on during our night.

I tend to use it most when I'm at home, but there are quite a few who look mostly from work.

we certainly have a weekly as well as a daily pattern. Saturday has always been the low spot for us.

Whenever I can, do some work then relax by browsing.

Although tonight it might take a few bottles of wine to relax

I guess saturday is a doing thing day for downsizer people - I tend to log on with morning coffee when I'm not at work, and with post-work glasses of wine (about 6.00) when I'm not, but then I guess I'm not typical!

First thing in the morning, before everyone is up I do here, RC, The hunger site (and others), hotmail and e mail.

Morning coffee time, Just before getting the children, and the evenings.

Sometimes I stay on all day, if I am on paperwork, then I limit myself to one post then write a letter, or do a job, then another post, etc.

Other days, just the evening, if I am too busy.

When I get up in the morning, and when I get back from work.

As i work from home I am off and on all day. I tend to do my housework first thing, check e-mails round 9.00 - 9.30 then after luch I do my wedding orders. Check posts around 7ish after I have had a bath. If hubs is watching some machinery or engineering tv will come here, but then come on for half an hour just before I go to bed. Agree with what is said about it being addictive and was pleased the decision was made not to have a chat room thingy!

Mine is similar. Once the I've done the school run I set off on a daily walk then log on with a coffee, when I get back. I try not to stay on too long but sometimes its 10.30 before I think I really must go and DO something. Other days I'll have the computer on and check periodically inbetween housework as a little diversion say from the tedium that is the ironing.

I try to make a habit of not being on here at the weekends, but I had a couple of important e-mails to do so thought since the computer was on...

After all, you've finally got the computer warmed up, decent head of steam in the boiler.....

Either when I'm online doing some work, or when I get time at other points in the day. Usually when I get the e-mails saying that someone has replied on one of the subjects I have contributed on, or a quick scan through to see if there any subjects I'm interested in/can be of assistance with.

It varies depending upon what we are busy with at the time, but I tend to find a lot fewer people online at the weekends. I have a look when I have time, but it goes so quickly on here, that I don't usually have time when I finish
