    Everyone needs a break from the everyday, whether its a working mum wanting a break from working or a SAHM wanting a break from her daily routine. Anyway i wasnt even the one that made that comment, just giving my spin on what i thought the PP was trying to say

    I totally agree. I actually find it offensive for someone to say that they would love they "break" of going to work.
    If you think you would love it, give it a try and then you will be in a position to compare!

    When I was a SAHM I had a break every day, while my babies took their nap. I could have a hot cuppa then too!

    I think lots of people are on FB all day - mums at work, dads at work, sahms. Personally, it's blocked at my work but if I finish my work early my employers don't seem to give a shiz what I do with the rest of my day.

    And BH. Work can't be that demanding for those posting on it all day.

    Not for me, the evenings and mornings are a nightmare but during the day boring as heck. Just like when I was a sahm. Now I am on holidays I actually have time to prepare dinner withut a rush and to clean during the day, leaving my evenings and weekends free to enjoy my family.

    I could use the same arguments re sahm - how can you complain that it's hard when you have time to post on BH? It takes about one minute to type up a post, I really don't worry myself with who is doing what. It's an escape for some.
