Sick Day

Today was a sick day for me. But as I work from home, that doesn't mean I had the day off. Instead, I simply made a slight change of venue. One of the advantages of working: on days when you're run down with cold so much so that your voice has dropped 2 octaves and become so husky that you could surely land another one of those work from home jobs (you know, the kind where you answer the telephone and have rather intimate conversations with strangers not, of course, that I have any experience in that!), you can still get things done and be cosy at the same time.

So today I set up shop in the sitting room, enjoyed the sofa and the sunlight while watching Julie & Julia (yes again, it was on, again) and got a bit of work done. Despite the pile of tissues that grew rapidly beside me.

I'm not the only one who enjoyed the change of atmosphere. I was joined quite quickly by Pippa, our Scottie. Our rather laidback Scottie, I should add. She isn't bothered by children dressing her up in various outfits, or by four-year olds tugging on her ears, and she doesn't ever bark. Ever. She truly has an uncanny ability to exude her relaxed attitude in everything she does.

And so laidback Pippa and I enjoyed the afternoon on the sofa. Me working and Pippa napping. In a somewhat unorthodox position. Or maybe it's just me, though I'm tempted to try this position out tomorrow.

Now, aren't you glad you had a sick day? Otherwise, you surely would have missed Pippa's nap, and this is too adorable to have missed!!! I definitely want to see a photo of YOU napping in this position!
