    Hi Gary,

    I think I’ve noticed a theme here, half of these involve NOT working, e.g. looking after kids, going to the dentist, watching TV! It’s a mixed blessing, isn’t it, nice to be flexible but lots of distractions ( see your other list on why working from home sucks ). Still, it certainly beats the routine of commuting to an office and having to sit there until they let you go home.

    Keep up the good work!

    Love the list Gary. I concur with most of those listed, with the exception of the last item. I smiled at no.12, but not holding my hand up to that! I love the flexibility of working from home and often work on an evening to make up for taking time out during the day.
