    Quite Often - There Is Nobody Here!

    I wake every morning @ 06:30 I log in to Ep on my iPhone, check my overnight messages, reply to them, then start to get on with my day. By the time I've fed the cats, tidied the kitchen, showered, made coffee, and got myself together, its nearly 08:00. By 09:00 I'm round mums...

    Lots to Do Here

    I could be on the phone, responding to emails, talking to the neighbour, or talking to a calf in my yard. Sometimes I could be working between stories or feeding myself.

    I always forget to log out

    when I leave here so a lot of times it will show that I am here when I'm really not.So if you message me and I don't answer that just means that I'm not there.I'm not ignoring anyone I swear lol.

    If I'm home the PC and TV are usually

    both on, but that doesn't mean I am paying attention to either one. It is probably a bad habit and is certainly a waste of electricity, but I doubt it will change any time soon.

    It's Nothing Personal ....

    I've been a member of EP for well over a year now.    So I do often log in.   I confess, I often log in when I'm at work too.     Sometimes it's because I'm having a slow time or maybe I just need a pick-me-up and choose EP instead of caffeine.I log onto many web sites...

    I work long and sometimes weird hours at home

    and online. My computer is hardly ever offline lol. However I keep crossing back and forth from my work, back to EP so if I don't reply straight away don't take it personally, but I promise to respond. If I ever need complete privacy then I always log off :)
