    Re: work my normal hours

    I suggest "my normal hours of 9 am to 5 pm" or "my normal hours: 9 am to 5 pm" instead. But that could just be American use.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I was going to suggest "... will work my normal hours - 9am to 5pm".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
