Flu

I am recovering from the flu. Started feeling ill last weekend. Stayed in most of the weekend. Went to work on Monday and Tuesday, but by Wednesday just couldn’t make it in. Called in sick, took meds and slept. It helped because I woke up feeling better this morning. A contractor’s life has its down-sides, and that is unpaid sick days. Staying home one day reduces my week’s pay by about £100 or so because of the way my contract is structured. Sadly if I miss a day in the week, my rate per hour is lower for the hours that I have worked. Oh well… when it’s your health, what can you do?
Today I had a bit of retail therapy. Bought some warmer clothes for these colder days. Arb fact, today was 3 minutes 51 seconds shorter than yesterday in terms of daylight hours. Scary.
