    Would you still do it?

    I wouldn't.
    If I had enough money to live on I could fill my days easy with stuff other than work :D

    No I wouldn't :)

    I could find plenty to do everyday rather than work. I'd definitely get another dog :D

    I love my job so yes I would but I'd do it as a volunteer or I'd donate my wages... maybe look into cutting my hours.

    I wouldn't go to work in my job If I didn't have too, I'd be taking away somebody else's chance of having a job and a career who needed it, instead I would start a craft workshop for children and adults :)

    NO!!!!! I have so many things I would love to do. I never understand people who say they would be bored if they didn't work :confused:

    I would deffently work.

    I had a 2 years as a stay at home mum after my second daughter was born. There lots to keep you busy, but it is lonely and I found myself missing adult convosation, with someone else apart from my hubby and other parents at the school.

    If i came into enough cash where i didn't need to work again, first thing i would do would be to make sure that the place i work at now was secure and buy the premises for my boss...

    I think i'd still work...but the chance to spend some time doing other things would be lush!!!
    :D

    It's about having a purpose though. There only so many times I could go shopping or out for a coffee before I would be twiddling my thumbs.

    I think it would be perfect for a while, but I think after a while I would miss the sense of purpose and pride in the fact that I have a job and am doing something with myself.

    There is so many volunteer opportunities to make you feel good about yourself, help others and interact :)

    I'm not sure tbh.

    I like the routine of work. More importantly I need the mental challenge, and self worth that my job brings. Otherwise I invent problems, over analyse and worry about stupid things.
    I can't stand being bored.

    It would be nice to have more free time, but I'd have to find a balance.
