IIRC Bertrand Russell defined "werk" as "moving things around at or near the Earth's surface".Nicely reductive.

So if I tidy my desk.............

1) Researching an article on a Major Raymond Simmonds who left a bequest to provide two prizes to be awarded to children annually at the local school but no-one knows who he was or why the bequest.

2) Looking after two little boys both home from school ill (1 has a cold and the other earache).

3) Writing letters to the Local Authority and others seeking information for another article.

4) Writing to the Arts Council for information concerning a grant for a charity that I am a Trustee of.

5) Planning and preparing the evening meal.

6) Accounts  sick2:

7) Writing a lengthy reply to a recently found cousin answering his questions regarding the family history.

Anything that SWMBO feels should have been done but hasn't by the time she gets in at 4.45pm
This generic heading covers loading dishwasher, some ironing, clean, set and light the fires, make beds, entertain little boys without allowing "too much" TV watching etc.
