    Do you take them or do you just batter on and get finished? Just now I just batter on, this may change when I go full time

    Depends how the day is going. If i'm smashing it and making good money, I might treat myself to a bit of food from tescos or spa, otherwise I just keep going and try to get finished and home before 4

    I'm a coffee addict so have to break the flask out every now and again, never stop to eat though but then my shifts aren't often long ones.

    At first house for 8
    Break at 10, for 20 mins
    Break at 1:00 for 20 mins
    Finish at 20 to 5.

    I never use to take breaks, you will find you will make your self ill doing this, well I did. Your body needs a rest even though you may not think you need one.

    Get on my first job for 9/9:30. Bite to eat around 12, (15 mins) then crack on and finish at 4... no breaks in-between.

    You have to have a break otherwise you will make yourself very Ill .

    You can cause yourself to have diabetes if you don't have a break and something to eat / drink .

    I take a break whenever I feel the need. Some days I stop 2 or 3 times, other days I crack on all day, except for a short (15 minute) break in the middle of the day. I have a bottle of Lucozade and a choccy bar to keep me going.
