Noon is as good a time as any to finally rouse oneself from bed, yes? After calling in sick today I spent the rest of the morning dozing, reading my book and flicking through the latest Vogue Knitting magazine in bed. (Ok, not everyone's idea of a good time, but I'm sure there's a bunch of you can relate.) Huh, twenty years ago I would have been buying Honcho or Inches magazines with the glee I now buy knitting magazines, it's a crazy world we live in.
A cup of tea and some wholegrain toast with imported French apricot jam, and the world looks much nicer. I actually feel quite a bit better today, even though my head feels a bit stuffier, probably because the low grade fever and sore throat has gone.
Anyhoo, sick talk blah blah.
The other benefit of being sick today is that I don't have to invent some bogus excuse to cut out of work early. So that I can hie along to the book signing organised by Kris (aka web-goddess) at her work, the yarn and needlecraft store Tapestry Craft this afternoon. Knit guru Nicky Epstein will be in the house!
That's a good enough reason to get out of bed.
