Home alone again! This time it's because I've called in sick. I have caught a nasty little cold and it likes me too much to leave me alone! Not to worry, I'm getting mostly better. It's Aidan I feel sorry for - he got home on Friday night after a week apart, only to find me sniffling on the couch feeling like "trap", as Jewel would say! But it's been wonderful to have him home again.

Now I'm doing what I never thought I would do - working from home! Not really working, just logging on to my email and forwarding things to other people so they can do the work. Fortunately our IT department hasn't found a secure way of letting us access our primary program from outside of work, so nobody can make me work properly from home! Although now I think of it, that would be kind of nice. They would have to pay for a high-speed internet connection for me at home, and then as long as I did all the work and did it properly I could work whenever I wanted to... no more long travel time to and from the office... yeah, sounds pretty good actually!

Something just went BANG in the laundry, I'd better go check it.

Aidan - I didn't figure out what it was, maybe just the washing machine doing it's thing.

Cazzie - I'm fairly sure most of Melbourne is sick just now :(

I used to be able to work from home in my previous company and I loved doing it. There are a lot of advantages to working for a high tech company and I miss it.

Hope you feel better soon.
