Time management around teatime

Hi everyone,

Has anyone else got any ideas for getting through that 4pm-7pm period with teatime, bathtime, bedtime if the working day hasn't finished?

I would take that time and do what needs to be done. I work at home so I can spend time with my baby while the others are in school. I don't want someone else raising him and seeing the joys of those first things he experiences. If your work isn't done by 4 then I would give some time to the kids do what needs to be done with them and when 7 comes around go back to work. We workers at home, if its your own business like mine is, it should be rather flexible. Thats why I started 6 months ago. I wanted flexibility, to help my husband with income and to be able to have family time whenever I want. Remember the job doesn't own your time. You give time to your job. If you don't mind me asking how long have you worked from home and do you own the business? This matters alot on these kind of questions.

I'm not in the UK (so no tea time for us!) I guess your strategy would depend on what you do.

I'm currently trying to establish a naptime for the time when I need to prepare dinner.
