Sick Day


For the past two days I have been working from home. Glued to my computer trying to remember what I had written down on my notepad at work and answering emails. I seem to have been allergic to something, which combined with being run down has led to a puffy face, eyes that seem to want to cry all the time and hands covered in a rash. Oh and yesterday I had two beautiful huge glands behind my ears. Not cool.

I thought working from home would be great, but in reality I'm just a little bit lonely and am in no state to put my face upon the public. I'm writing this in my little lunch break I've given myself to listen to Mumford & Sons (they're in my life in a big way again) and to make cupcakes and eat pate. Sounds ideal but it is just so I don't rattle around here on my own. 

Lee has been an absolute treasure and when I was crying yesterday, as I felt hideously unattractive, he just gave me a massive 'cheer up Bec' cuddle and fed me popcorn (also back in my life in a big way). The problem with living with your boyfriend is they have to see you in all states...

I'm hoping to be well enough to go to the office tomorrow, I love the chats and the structure and of course my notebook which lets me know what the devil I'm supposed to be doing with my day...

On another note, thank you all so much for your kind words on my last post, it means a lot to me and I'm glad that others have been through the same thing and come out the other end even stronger. You guys are the best.

  10. Waa get better soon! Sounds awful, but at least you get to eat whenever you want right? Rather than on dedicated lunch breaks? (: That is going to be my worst nightmare in the world of work: lunch breaks. Only eating once a day. Life = over.

    Ps. I like your socks. xxx

  11. Awww I hope you feel better soon! I also had to stay home once because of a reaction / allergy I'd had. I remember feeling exactly the same and I was really frustrated because no amount of pills were helping with the soreness. Think in the end I used some of my grandad's extra extra extra strong ones which you had to dissolve in water and were DISGUSTING. They did the trick though, my reaction calmed right down x x
