A woman who recently worked at home was unsure of what time it would be acceptable to enjoy the first glass of wine of the day.

Eleanor Gay, a systems analyst from Brighton, began working at home after travelling by Southern Rail was judged to be a crime against humanity.

“I mean, it was lovely, and I’ve no complaints,” said Ms Gay.

“Although, there does seem to be an awful lot of programmes on about people selling things at auctions, which is a bit weird.

“The biggest problem, though, was that I didn’t know what time was alright to open the wine. I mean, normally I wouldn’t consider drinking wine at ten in the morning but it wasn’t like I had anything else to do.

“But then if I left it later, I don’t know, four in the afternoon say, then what am I going to do all day? It’s going to get a bit boring.

“In the end, I opened the bottle at half twelve and then dozed through a repeat of Columbo before the kids got home.

“Working at home is brilliant.”

According to studies, the average time for a person working at home to have their first drink is 11.50am, and 56% of those first drinks are gin and tonics.
