The main reason is that I've been ill quite a lot over the last few weeks. I was off work for a couple of days three weeks ago and really went back too soon. It didn't help that it was one of those 'feeling ill, slight temperature, sore throat, bit tired and spaced out but nothing you can actually easily put on a sick form' sort of illnesses. Although I had more or less got over it I was still losing my voice quite a lot but functioning okay. And then this morning I woke up with a full-on cold, of which there was little sign 24 hours ago. Sigh. I can't tell you how irritated this is starting to make me!
In between I spent a week commuting to London for a SAP training course (Cost Centre account this time) and just about back in the swing of rehearsals for Scrooge again, although due to persistent Director grumpyness this has not been as much fun as it ought to be.
We also went out on Friday for a meal to celebrate my dad's 65th birthday. He is official retired now, lucky old sod!
Anyway, thought I'd just check in to reassure everyone that I'm still alive!
