And nearly a third admit they had done their food or clothes shopping while technically ‘at work’.
A healthy four in ten of those questioned admitted to visiting the gym or doing some other form of exercise while in ‘the office’, but for 15 per cent the best perk was being able to smoke in the ‘office’, with many saying they engineered days away from the workplace just for that reason.
One respondent said: ‘The problem with working from home is the lines and divisions between private and professional life become blurred. ‘It’s easy to forget you’re meant to be working, especially if your partner is home as well.’ Nothing better than a little afternoon delight.
Another said: ‘I love to go shopping during work time because I can get my chores done instead of having to do them on the weekend when the supermarket is so much busier.
I must admit that I have gotten used to the flexibility of working from my home office and yes I do get easily distracted. But bottom line – whatever I need to get done – gets done.
