I'm not really a 'current' work at home Mum! I mean, I know [and so does my mother!] that I will remain a 'Mum' to the end, but my daughter is nearly 44 and does not live anywhere near me, so I am really a 'work at home' bod. Odds bodikins! Trouble is, I find, that it is the 'at home' bit that people you know take onboard, and this means that if the neighbour wants you to pull your bougainvillea back over the wall or he will hack it to pieces himself, RIGHT NOW, then you are, apparently, able to do what he wants RIGHT NOW, because working from home would indicate that you don't 'seriously' work and are therefore merely trying to annoy him by leaving your bougainvillea trailing over his side of the wall into his brown, crispy, dog poo laden, bare patch of a garden [that could do with the splash of colour he has from YOUR bougainvillea - free and gratis!], when you are at home 'not seriously working' all day, seven days a week. No amount of telling him that you are on a deadline and can only see to it later, when it is dark, stops him waving his rusty pair of secateurs over the wall at you in a threatening manner. And this is the man who switches his BRIGHT lights on along the side of his house that abutts your bedrooms, because, he says, he is concerned about security.
