Do you use the internet everyday? We do, my son comes onto the internet to read the football news. Hubby uses everyday to read car forums, online banking etc I come onto internet everyday to read forums, come back on mylot and to look at loads of recipes sites. But I'm not upset if I can't get here, not the end of the world. Loads of other things that need and can be done.

I use my laptop daily and when it heats up I turn it off for a few minutes and then I am right back online. I probably am on six or seven times for an hour or more until it heats up. I get 50 or more responses on here done and frequent several other sites where I do surveys, write articles and publish them and play games on Facebook for a break.

Hiya Anne, Well first time today that I have managed to get on here to write something even if its only a little. They have been on here all Day long and I have not been able to get much of a look in at all. Yes my lot come on here to read the News and all that kind of thing as well and to see how their favourite Football Team is doing. Have loads of things to do as well but not much in the mood at the moment to do any of them as you can see because I am here are´nt I?.xxx

Hiya Anne, Great to see you too I have one eye on the Beans and one eye on here lol. I do the Beans with Greens not too many as they tend to froth up very early on. Will I be glad when I can get back to Beans out of packets they taste so much better. Anyway my Kids have always always been late nighters hence I cannot sleep properly before one o´clock in the morning at the earliest. They still go to bed really really late. Late Night Howlers is what I call them my Husband is the same cannot sleep till really late so it stuck on me in England I was always in Bed much earlier than that before I knew him. I am finishing off the Bedroom where the eldest is and it looks like a Bomb has hit it so to speak so I just dump all the mess in one pile now and make the Bed hoover and dust and that is my lot its about time he learned to do the Room himself. I watch Top Gear sometimes but I understand these are Episodes that are way out of Date but I find them entertaining. How would you like that Maclaren Car eh? no less than four hundred thousand pounds for starters but such a beautiful Car wow some have got it all. Its a way of keeping up with what goes on over there as well. Also sometimes and I really have to be in the mood to watch Gordon Ramsay because of his language which I don´t much care for but he is a brilliant Chef with brilliant ideas and he often puts on places that I used to know in England and especially Wales. What a shame about the Saracens Head one I did so want it to work for them. Its a cruel World gal is´nt it. Enjoy your Days off Work and rest all you can I am taking it a bit easy and yes I am also expected to be perfect and do everything right as well. I cannot trip up over the Dog that is always lying on top of my feet or blocking the Doorway or trying to jump all over my Sofa lol. Who wants to be a Woman Men always think they are so perfect good Job we can see right through them eh? Will get round to your post albeit late but I do get there I am working my way backwards to be fair to everyone who posted a while back. I also keep my English fluent this way and learn how to spell again just kidding. My Kids are always watching Football on the Television they follow Barcelona, Real Madrid and Wolverhampton Wanderers who are having a pretty rough time. xxx

I have veggie casserole for my tea tonight, has a tin of kidney beans in them as they are nice and cheap! Rest of family are having mac cheese! My children normally go to bed around 9.30pm, wel they go to there rooms then to read/watch telly but they are very often awake when I go to bed after 11pm.. I have now given up on bedtimes and lights off times etc, as longs they get up in the mornings and aren't too grungry I don't really care!! Bad mother I am! Half term this week so they will get up when they want. I do insist that they must have breakfast before 10am ... only because it then rolls too near to lunch, and they have to have lunch by 1pm. Don't mind if they go back to bed after breakfast though! When I do bedrooms for the children I also leave a pile of things in the doorway that they have to sort out before they do anything else! I don't watch Top Gear but hubby and youngest son do watch it. Not into cars, I do also like ot watch the cooking shows, sometimes there is jusat far too many on ot follow them all... I think most of them make you fat as they use fatting ingredeients! Glad i'm not the only one who is meant ot be prefect.... waiting for washing machine man to come and mend machine, drum not spinning. Hubby has been to the laundry shop so many times over the weekend so have spend far too much money on getting clothes clean.. he is too poud to ask our neighbour friends to od it for us!! Men!!! We only have a cat, I trip over him and stand on him.. all by accident I must say before the RSPCA come after me!!LOL Where are you in the world??? Glad that you are keeping pu with the english. My eldest son follows Man U and a locla team.. football mad he is. Lovely ot have a nice long reply ot answer, plus also good that I have time as everyone else is busy and I have got an early slot on the pc!

I'm plannnig ot have lentil curry tomorrow night, found this real easy recipe, rest of family will have sausages!!! Have done two loads of washing and its been ok, aren't men fuynny sometimes??? Well we are superwoman, and can multi task many things at one go while they are only expected to cope with doing one thing at a time, and look gobsmacked when we only do one thing at a time, almost as if we have two heads or are ill!! Watching QVC as nothing on what I call normal telly, good stuff on tomorrow night so will be ok tomorrow night. Going ot work in the morning, so might not see any of the children until I get back at 11am, have told them to make sure they wash there dishes up etc!! Cruel mother that I am! Wasn't belt on machine, don't know what it was as hubby sorted it all out. So new one yet, but ours is six years old and gets lots and lots of use, sometimes its on three times a day!!!

I go on everyday. There was a time when I was on the computer for at least 10-12 hours per day. But then I spilled something on my laptop and did not have a computer for a few weeks. I thought it was the end of the world but of course it wasn't. After a few days I didn't mind it too much. Now I go on everyday but just for a few hours.

When I am at home I use the internet every day, but when I travel I don't use the internet very often. When I travel I sometimes use the internet when I need to find a train timetable or a hotel to spend the night, but I don't spend more than half an hour online because I am too busy with other things like sightseeing. At home I often spend a lot of time online, but it depends on my other activities and unfortuneately it also depends on my internet connection, because it is not very good. When I lose the connection all the time I prefer to do something else for a while like reading or painting.

The Internet is important to me therefore I use it every day. I love to go on to excellent My Lot. I am keen to reading emails and replying to them. I am happy to view catch up TV for documentaries and travel programs. I can think of something particular and enter it into the search engine and find out about that something straight away. If the Internet crashes I do my very best to get it working again. It was so horrible when I moved and my Internet wasn't available for three weeks. I tried going to the library but one hour was not long enough. In the end I took my laptop down to a mobile phone shop and bought mobile Internet. That let me use the Internet again on my laptop and I was so delighted.

I use the internet everyday. From morning, around eight o'clock till midnight (12.30-1.00am). I am addicted to internet lol I love reading forums (especially in myLot), and articles. I love going to social networking sites like twitter. And I always research about some websites if they are trusted or scams. It is basically part of my everyday life now.

I am always online. Even when I'm at work, I would have the internet running at the background. I constantly need to do other things at work otherwise I get bored out of my mind. Aside from myLotting, I am trying to run my online business. And when I'm away from my desk or a computer, I have my phone which connects directly to the net too!

I do like using the internet at least once a day. However, lately, this hasn't really been possible as much, as my husband and i just moved and haven't been able to set up our internet at home. So there have been days when we haven't used the internet at all. But we do enjoy using it whenever we can.

I'm often use internet. If I not surfing internet for a day I will get uncomfortable, like something's missing or my day will not incomplete. I afraid that it will be called addicted though I really don't like being labelled like that. But somehow I think yes I'm addicted. Lost of thing can be done by internet. I check email everyday, find some info in sports, music, TV, etc. And since I'm into myLot I must have set aside time just for myLot but rarely respond or comment to discussion I'm more into reading.

Hi Anne18, we are using unlimited bandwidth at home and we pay for the service monthly. I watch online tv series, listen to music, surf net etc everyday. My husband and younger brother like reading online newspapers. They read the latest internet news everyday except weekends. They are freaks of politic news. Most of my work schedules depend on internet as well. If internet service is not available for a single day, the workload would be delayed for sure. I then have to seek for free wifi away from home to continue my work, if it have to be finished the same day. My work needs info and knowledge from the web. If only flexible schedule left when encountering internet interrupt I would be quite happy as I can make arrangement to do something that need not rely on internet Yeah, it's a great pleasure I can enjoy a moment out doing my favorite hobbies of the busy schedule Have a nice day

Net addict - Addicted to Internet
I use the internet 15 hours a day/ 7 days a week. I am working in an office, so the whole day I will be on the internet. It is not that busy here in the office so I can always use the net to open myLot and other websites. After work, I will go home, and the first thing I will do is open my laptop. LOL. I guess it's part of my life now. I feel something is missing if I don't use the internet for a day.

I practically use the internet everyday, I have to go on everyday because I'm constantly checking my emails. I go on to watch movies, talk to friends and of course earn! It's my piece of entertainment as well as I watch animations and movies online. Why watch the actual TV when you can just watch Tv on the internet while doing something else at the same time on the net. It's so convenient! Of course, staring at your computer screen for a little too long isn't so great. We should always have a balanced lifestyle.
