    Not As Often As Before

    I used to be on here daily but it also depends on how busy we are. When we are slow no one cares as we are all doing it. As long as busy times are kept productive it's all good. Just in between today so a little bit of both.

    Everyday

    Everyday I look at the internet when I should be working. I’ve only one person to blame if I’m ever caught. I’m not that silly as I am the boss, and I work for myself, so keep your sticky beck out of it – I’ll do what I like and work when I like!!!
