    LMB would be proud. I haven't gone to work today. Still on the cold and flu tablets. I have to get a medical certificate, but luckily there's a bulk bill place nearby that makes appointments. Not sure I'd go there if I was actually needing medical advice but it's perfect for this!

    Sara I think you'd love Niseko. I can always be conviced to go on a Japan trip if you need a travel buddy :D

    LOL
    That makes it sound like I'm encouraging skiving off work!!

    Let's just clarify I was telling you NOT to be a martyr and if you're sick take the sick leave and don't spread your germs to the whole office. :thumbs:

    Currently in Sydney waiting for HOURS for my flight to Perth. Final boarding call for the earlier flight was being announced as I walked past the gate - dang! I wished I could get on it! Just want to be home now. In the cranked up air conditioning. What is that wet stuff running down my back - SWEAT?!?!? Haven't had that in a while!!! Thank god for lounge showers - I feel human again.

    Ears haven't equalised since the first flight took off - I'm deaf! I can sign - but no one else can....
    Hope that doesn't last too long!

    Don't worry, I'm really sick LMB. Just taking your advice and not being a martyr :thumbs: I doubt they'd want me at work today coughing my germs over everyone.

    Hope you're back in Perth and relaxing soon LMB. I've cranked the air con today. Forecast is 36 degrees and humid. Yuck.

    Hope you make it home safely Mamabear! I am always deaf after flying if that's any consolation!

    Showing my age here too. But where I was a kid, a Tosca was not only a chocolate bar, but also a quick groin grope a la Crocodile Dundee or a "Christian kiss".

    So how did this situation go after waiting a day or two?

    I'm stoked!
    Weighed in this morning (arrived home last night, so earlier than I should have) and only 1.5kgs damage. Considering there's probably a kilo of muscle in each of my ridiculously pumped up calves - im calling that a net loss! LOL jk jk!

    I forgot to update. It's a miracle! I'm down from 67 kilos when I weighed myself Sunday after the flight to 64.2 kilos as of this morning :D That's only 1.2 kilos up from my pre trip weight.

    After you pointed out the part about fluid retention from the flight I realised I had hideous cankles from fluid retention. That was with having an aisle seat and getting up all the time!!

    I am the same weight, although doing stuff around Sydney with my mum is not great for my normally modest diet! And that is walking heaps and swimming daily! First world problems :D

    It's a bit more in focus than the last one - apologies - it's a ski trip - razors generally not required... ;)
