Then I got sick.
It's just a head cold, but it has knocked me for 6, and I wound up having half of Friday, Monday and most of Tuesday off sick. If the weekend hadn't been in the middle there, I may have had a couple more days off as well. The cold meant I couldn't think straight enough to form a sentence let alone a blog post. My brain went fuzzy at the sight of a computer screen, and I spent most of the last few days lying on the couch vaguely watching TV. I couldn't even really tell you what I watched - the latest Phryne Fisher episode, a 3rd Rock From The Sun episode or two, and a dodgy movie or two were in there but not sure what else.
I'm pretty pathetic when I get sick - 'man flu' has nothing on me - but I really was out of it this time. The girls in the office sent me home on Friday, and then again on Tuesday when I rocked up for an hour in the morning. Lord help me if I ever get anything really serious!
At any rate, I'm coming out the other side now. I was at work all day Wednesday (although I'm not sure what I accomplished) and I'm back at work today, suposedly working on a presentation I'm giving this afternoon (although it's not getting very far at the moment!).
However, having a couple of days of sick did have its benefits - I managed to finish my current WIP. It's now with OzzyPip waiting to be put into a wall hanging with her embroideries for our show entry. The full piece needs to be finished by next weekend to be entered into the Show.
Off to take more cold-and-flu drugs, blow my nose, and get back to work on this presentation.
