""It's no longer a question of staying healthy. It's a question of finding a sickness you like."
So I've been off sick since last Wednesday with a virus and then post-viral fatigue. My sick note runs out tomorrow so I have to go back to work (also my boss is taking a trip to Germany that she knows nothing about so I should probably make sure she gets on the right plane and whatnot). At first I was like, "I'm off work, yay! I'll do so much stuff." In the end, what I've actually done is sleep about twelve hours each day, be exhausted when awake, and zone out on the sofa watching American Horror Story and eating chocolate. So yeah, post-viral fatigue sucks the fun out of being signed off work sick.
I'm not really sure I'm well enough to go back, but I guess if I get to work and pass out at my desk, someone will send me home again. Plus, I've now finished American Horror Story and I have packages to collect at work. Apparently post-viral fatigue can be quite long-term, and since I had glandular fever when I was younger, it takes me longer to get over this kind of thing than it otherwise might. So I'm quite prepared to feel like shite for a while yet, but I'd like to go back to the office and clean my inbox out nevertheless.
In the mean time, I've decided to initiate a regular promotion over at Common Brimstone for the last weekend of every month (or the first in this case, given the way things have worked out). The last weekend of every month, I'll be offering one 5ml perfume oil at a 20% discount in honour of pay day weekend. I live for my pay day, because that's when I can buy all the shiny precious things I've been coveting all month. So from 1st - 4th March, something exciting will be on offer! Check back Friday to find out what ^_^
And now, I am cold and tired and Fergus is doing something that sounds suspicious in the kitchen...Off to investigate/sleep
