I was genuinely off sick last night, bit peed of about that, waste of a good day off. Going back tonight, still coughing and spluttering, like the ad.... "Soldier on"
Bummer to waste a day actually being unfit to work, I hope you recover soon.

I’ve got big plans for Monday weather permitting.

If I can avoid getting Trenchfoot watching Midnight Oil at The Big Pineapple on Saturday ... Sunshine State My Arse.
