Sick days are for taking up the whole bed and listening to the rain fall through the open window.
Sick days are for creating cosy empires with a Radio 4 soundtrack; gallons of tea and stodgy sweet porridge consumed while hiding under the duvet.
Sick days are for observing an unfamilar neighbourhood: new noises, new happenings, which are always missed while at work.
Sick days are for eating toast and jam unreasonably close to lunch time.
Sick days can sometimes be a welcome break from the buzz of life!
