    I'm also being told that I'm not giving the dog enough attention. I'm also now the default IT support for her mac.

    I've tried explaining to her that I'm working and it's similar to her walking in on a colleague and just talking to them.

    What can i do?

    It's a roundabout way of telling you that she is horny and is looking for a shag. Just shag her senseless and she will leave you in peace for the rest of the day.

    More serious answer: do what I'm planning to do and get a garden office. You can get a proper insulated timber framed garden office with all mod cons for £10-15k (though I'm currently seriously contemplating going down the self-build route - they aren't that complicated to build).

    Yep I went to look at one a got a quote for 15k (Manchester - if anyone is interested can supply website), professional setup, architect and engineer.

    But I'm thinking of converting the garage to an office. Get a cheaper garage in the side garden and have it as a garage/gym. Only thing is I can't use the company money to convert the garage. And have a long list of things that need doing on the house before the garage.

    What can i do?
    What do you have a webcam in your home cubicle ? Just pay some Bob to send some emails now and then and generally pretend there is someone at your desk.

    Certainly works with your "Mrs", although granted she doesn't really bear much ability in the conversational stakes

    This. Since we moved to South Brum nigh on 18 months ago I've been in the dining room, isn't too bad but yes there are distractions a plenty.

    However there are plans a foot to convert the garage to spare room and also and an office (not just a bedroom, a specific working office for moi which will have a light system for busy, bugger off; not busy, still leave me alone. )
