It suits me fine. I have a filthy cold and being snuggled up at home is just where I want to be.
What is your stand on colds? My work involves visiting people in their own homes, I hate it when I visit and they are crook. I am sure they wouldn't like it when I spread my germs around. If it is a bad cold, I stay away unless they really insist I come. When my kids were little our Mums group had the unsaid rule, if the snot is green stay home.
Some people are funny about illness. I know I am rather paranoid about gastro. If someone in our family is sick, we stay away and we don't have visitors. I would never send my kids back to school before 48 clear hours have passed.
When I was teaching, the words I hated to hear were "he vomited all night, but, he really wanted to come". Really?
Well, that's my little rant. I do hope the teachers gain more pay, they deserve it. I can't think of a job more important than teaching the next generation.
I am going to drink lots of water, down some vitamin C and stay away from everyone!
