Lottie Time Vs Work Time
« on: September 09, 2007, 19:52 »
I was down my Lottie this morning and agreed to return home at 1:30pm to take Mrs Fatbelly to her mothers.

After what I thought was about one hour I checked my watch and discovered that I had already been on my plot for three hours and it was 2pm.  What happens to time when I get on my plot????  Does anyone else have this problem and why doesn't work time go just as quick??

I think my plot may well be a machine time.

Yes, this always happens. I think the earthworms emit tachyon particles.

The worst thing I find is the fatal line " I'll just do that a bit quick before I go" the job you thoughtthat could be completed in about 10 mins stretches into 3/4 of an hour  :oops: and you end up getting phone calls - do you realise its dark  :oops:

I don't have this problem, well I do sort of.  I have time restrictions due to being a single parent and having dependent children so if I need to be back for the school bus I simply cannot be half an hour later or my son would be left wandering the neighbourhood and then visions of social services and police float through my mind!  So I constantly check my watch and if I see certain lottie holders I even leave early because I just know that I will caught for a chat- lovely but time consuming!  But the time does speed by and I never seem to get done half of what I plan to get get done!  All I can suggest for those without the restrictions of childcare to ensure they leave on time is to buy a very loud alarm clock!
