LOL if you had asked me this years ago much more so. These days because I barely sleep I am online far too much. But what else can I do at 3AM when sleep is elusive? I enjoy the camaraderie and the fact that someone is always here due to PSers living in all different time zones. And then fellow insomniacs like me hello dear friend. Sigh. Wish we were sleeping but this is not a bad second best .

ETA: I don't know the number of hours because I don't want to know but I do check in often during the day because it is so easy to do so from one's phone. And just for a minute or two at a time. It's the perfect ADD accompaniment. LOL

Haha!!! We’re hopeless bling addicts!
I have an app in my phone from who knows where that tells me how much screen time I did for the day..week..It’s pretty much all PS! It’s embarrassing how much time I spend in bits and pieces too!

I am far too addicted to the internet generally :oops:

I end up in that 'circle of doom', where you have several websites you like and you have to check each one before switching off, but when you get to the last one you think 'perhaps there's something new on the first one?' and then start the circle again... :lol: lol

HI:

I am an outlier! LOL I don't tweet, follow IG or have a FB account. I don't shop much online. PS is my soft spot, although I often can't keep up!

OKOKOK I do like the Tiffany website and might spend a bit of time lurking there........:bigsmile:

cheers--Sharon

I don’t!!

Although I try (and not succeed) to keep off the internet before bed, but there have been times that at 2am when I can’t sleep I can be found playing games and surfing :oops:

Since I have nothing more to do, I do not limit myself in time. But I think it's worth doing something else

Limits are somewhat built in because I have other things to do. Even now when I am spending much more time online I also have masks to sew, plants to plant plus the ‘I finally have time to do it’ to -do list. I work a few afternoons a week with a free meal program, making more dinners at home, the laundry hasn’t stopped, going for a walk, spending time with hubby. I can’t be online when I’m doing something else.
I also keep my phone to bare minimum apps so that isn’t as handy. Hubby recently insisted I add messenger to my phone because while I claimed I didn’t need/want it, I was too often asking him to do my messages on his phone, lol. It feels like a huge invasion to my phone.
