    Me too, started Friday but seems to have mainly cleared now so it didn't stop me going to the dentists this morning for further root canal and crown treatment on a front tooth and then the orthopedic doctor for some electric shock treatment and sucking cups on my back, neck and shoulders followed by a 300km drive and still managed to bill a few hours today
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Exactly the same for me. Developed illness on Sunday and WFH today. Nasty.

    One more reason to get out of the UK.

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    B is for bug that you have today,
    e is e-coli which is a terrible bacteria,
    d is for day which you spent at home,
    w is for weekend, which is when you got your cold,
    e is for exception, which we all have sometimes,
    t is for throat, which is ever so sore,
    t is for tickle, oh cough cough cough,
    e is for epidemic, which seems so rife.,
    r is for respite, oh do please put your feetup & hope you feel better soon.
    What happens in General, stays in General.

    Hope it blows over soon NAT, but just in case, make sure your will is up to date and dont mix with the kids or friends or the missus.
    Dont make any long term plans and dont worry about getting life insurance because it's too late now.

    apart from that, chin up, hope it blows over soon

    Friggin' permie came in yesterday, looking and sounding like she was at death's door.

    On being asked if she was "OK" she burst into tears and said how ill she felt.

    After much persuasion, she went home, but only after she'd coughed and spluttered her germs for a couple of hours.

    If I get ill and miss a day's invoicing, I'm suing her. (Actually, maybe I'll post that question for NLUK in professional!)

    Hope you feel better soon NAT.

    I wonder how long it will be before some ambulance chasing lawyer tries that one on. Like that PC that tripped over a kerb in Thetford when answering a 999 call.

    "That stabbing victim had a cold - and he gave it to me when I attending the 999 call. He coughed when I was in the room. I need compensating for the 2 weeks I will be off sick and unable to do any overtime. My lawyers will serve him with papers when he gets out of surgery."

    My initial read on the subject was "I hate being !!!".
    Never has a man been heard to say on his death bed that he wishes he'd spent more time in the office.
