    On average, over the past 12 months, whether you love or hate what you're doing.

    Include job(s) and business(es).

    Feel free to give details (particularly if business owner or employee), boast about being retired, tell us about the most ridiculous period of your working life, confess how few hours you actually "work" at work or whatever you wish to share.

    I'm really curious.

    I have been working 0~4 hours / day for the past year, feeling myself semi-retired.

    Average around 40 hrs a week in my day job depending on what needs to be done. Have put in some very long hours at times working on tenders (worst would be a 60 hr week).

    I average about nine to ten hours a day 7 days a week for the past couple years. No holidays.

    But the 32 hrs a week I work for my employer I get to sit down at a desk. I classify desk work as a day off.

    Worked from 7:30am to 8pm today.

    I probably should have a whole day off sometime this year.

    I say 41-50 but that's a full time job and ~3 part time jobs for fun.
    I pretty much enjoy all my work. Well, actually, now I think about it, maybe the volleyball refereeing is the least fun job of them all, and that's not terrible...

    About 40 hours, but will increase soon.

    Over the past ten years I've routinely done a minimum of 80, and frequently well over 100 (and 130+, that is 12-14 hour days mon to thurs, then another 90 hours fri to mon with 6 hours sleep...)

    Thankfully those days are over as they were soul destroying.

    25 hours a day, get up before I go to bed, walk five miles through snow to get there- and then home for lunch and back again, and pay my boss half my wage for the privilege.

    I start at twelve, knock off at one and have an hour for lunch if that helps.

    Try to keep it at 45 hours a week. But then I also study part time, and have to help with two kids under three when I get home, so leaves little time for anything else.

    No kidding - that's terrible. What industry was that (so I can avoid it at all costs)?
