OK, I'm back again.

No, really; I'm properly better this time.


I lasted approximately half an hour on Monday before I succumbed to the inevitable and headed back to Castle Fox. I had, honestly, felt OK first thing Monday, y'see, but by the time I got home all I could do was go back to bed.

So I took that as a guide for Tuesday, when I woke up feeling groggy, that I shouldn't even try to wend my way here. Yesterday, however, was less clear-cut... I didn't feel great at 6am, but I didn't feel terrible either. But I stayed off, figuring that I didn't want to repeat Monday's charade. As it happens, I felt mostly OK all day - somewhat lethargic, which is to be expected, but it was enough of a cue to ensure that I came in today.

What I came back to was a cardboard replacement of myself occupying my chair - Colleague J's hand was in this, I suspect, given the fez adorning cardboard!me's head, and I was touched by the three post-it notes that denoted the happy, smiling face.

I also came back to a whole stack of email, and five days' backlog of broken promises and other things... I've been spectacularly unproductive during the week's absence. A couple of times I tried sketching out some work stuff, but I couldn't maintain the interest or the enthusiasm (despite the guilt) to do so. So I'm behind, and about to start trying to catch up...

Good luck catching up, and don't push yourself too hard. You're still recovering, after all!

Aww, the cardboard cut-out was a nice touch! Welcome back (again) - I don't believe for a second that you're properly better yet, just on the mend, so I echo what uC said: Don't try to be superhuman and catch up all in one go.

*hugs you*

Am greatly amused by the cardboard!you sitting in your chair. At least you know your colleagues care. :D

The cardboard Fox made me laugh out loud! I'm going to echo others here and cluck over you, hen-like. *cluck-cluck-cluck*

There. That'll learn you to come back too soon. *smirk*
