Writing this from my bed

Don't be too jealous. I have confined myself to bed to try to get better before I really get sick. I have a horrid sore throat, throbbing headache and blocked ears, so it's lots of Med-Lemon for me, a scarf around my neck and an afternoon of trying not to let the laptop overheat on the bed covers while I work.

Seems to be working so far. Orange Strepsils (brand of throat lozenges) are awesome. So are lazy cats who keep me company and leftovers from last night's oxtail stew. Yum!

Less awesome is the fact that work needs to be done and I can't just spend the afternoon sleeping the sickness away.

It also feels a bit weird to be in bed without requiring a doctor's note for the boss. I almost feel guilty for not having permission to be sick ;-)

You have my permission too!

I too feel so guilty when taking to my bed when I'm ill. One of the 'downsides' of being your own boss!

Get better soon xx

Sorry about the sick. Hope you get back to normal soon. Aren't the kitties good company and they're just loving the extra bed time too!

Erk, hope you feel better. So, how is the freelancing life going? Do you find you are productive enough at home? That would be my biggest worry but you seem way more self motivated than me!

So nice to catch up on your blog, you're besig as usual so hope you managed to take some time out and get better.
I'm not my own boss and feel awful when I get sick, like I'm letting the team down. So ridiculous!
