Aha!

It appears the reason I was so cold is that I have the deeply unpleasant stomach bug that's swept round our office.

Yuck.

On the plus side, I got paid for being ill. Having been a contractor for 8 years or so I had actually forgotten what it feels like. I'd got used to the nagging guilt that I clearly wasn't that ill and that I couldn't get up and GO AND EARN SOME MONEY. So to feel like I can actually recover from being ill without forcing myself is actually making me feel less ill.

Whatever will they think of next? Paying people when they're on holiday? Paying people to have babies? It's a crazy future ahead of us....

Nothing is worse than working when you're sick...except when you get your paycheck...then you think to yourself, thank God I worked or I'd be screwed paying bills this month. Hope you feel better little squirrel, drink lots of fluids! :)

My condolences on being ill, but congratulations on being paid for it!
Next thing you know, you'll be paid to bathe.
It's a glorious world!

p.s. But do get better soon -- or at the very least lay around and watch things on TV that you wouldn't normally admit to. You've earned it.

They'll pay you, but you may still get a black mark in your report card.

Lol, you've been permie two minutes and off sick already!?

Anyway, hope you're feeling better and hope Spurs get a good win this weekend...

I agree with all weenie says, apart from the Spurs bit...

I am sorry you're ill but this post made me laugh, so thank you! :)

Sweet Cheeks - thanks! Plenty of fluids were drank. Some of them weren't even Diet Coke.

Pearl - I did spend an entire day asleep and felt much better for it. I'm going to try and make it a regular event :)

gb - I spent less days ill than the bosses though, so hopefully it got me bonus points somewhere.

weenie - why you... *shakes fist*
Only a draw, but I'll take that - unbeaten against the big 4 this season :)

Alfamale - Lucky win for you guys today. You'll still get relegated though ;-)

Paula - :)
