Sick days


#1

I am off sick, couldn’t get back to sleep after MrS and kids left - so have lounged in bed playing games and reading the internet until eleven.

now up, washed and watching PM questions…might watch some Louis Theroux in a bit. Bit bored tbh - anyone got netflix/iplayer recommends? Guess I could probably manage a post lunch sofa nap.

what do you do on sickdays?


#2

#3

#4

whatever you do on a Sunday


#5

bed bed bed bed bed bed bed bed


#6

Was off for a day and a half last week, was on the sofa under a duvet the whole time watching films and tv series.
When I could I got up and went outside for a wee walk in the fresh air, I’m a big believer in fresh air when you feel shite.

Get well soon slicky :+1:

Hope you feel better soon!

I make myself a little bed on the sofa and binge watch Netflix/NowTV or films. I’m currently watching The Affair, which is pretty good. I feel a bit crap (but not enough to warrant a sic day) and would have loved to stay home today and do the above.


#8

watched Louis doing sex trafficking and gun crime so far. Might have to go a little more light hearted in a bit…


#9

work, washing, cleaning, cooking, walk. NAH


#10

Spend most of the day feeling hungry and trying to regulate how many trips I make to the fridge.

Obviously the illness days where you are unable to eat anything are the absolute worst.


#11

do you not think you should have stepped in or called the police or something?


#12

when I was child I read pretty much every Asterix book on sick days. and listened to the Lord of the Rings on cassette


#13

You should probably consider making the step up to a house with a toilet.


#14

He would probably just have talked his way out of it with his easygoing manner.


#15

Watch: The Punisher. Really enjoyed it and pretty mindless.

I normally drag myself to work on sick days cos then when I call in sick (due to hangovers) it’s fully believed.

If I’m not in work I’ll usually paint loads of orc dollies and listen to podcasts. Good stuff.


#16

This is weird genius, but genius nevertheless.


#17

Surely this is normal behaviour! I believe @japes also does the same.

They’ve even started not marking me down as ill when I’m off (although its only twice in 3 years) as they’re a GBOLs


#18

check your paid leave privilege mates!!!


#19

Sick days are absolutely wasted if you’re feeling ill.

I remember watching an entire season of Arrested Development when I had a couple of days off for a chest infection. It wasn’t serious but I really couldn’t be bothered with work.


#20

Video games were invented for sick days
