I’m on forced Downtime, on sick leave of sorts – well I’m not under anyone’s full -time employ so it’s more that I’ve had to cancel commitments, canceled freelance shifts, moved meetings and so on. And with freelancing comes the dreaded no work no pay thing.
It is soooo difficult to switch off OMW! It has always been difficult for me to take sick days, I always feel so guilty that other people have to pick up the slack for something I had committed to. It started at school days my dad especially practically wanted a coroner’s report before I could call in sick. And they would make me do homework buddy, “if you have time to lean you have time to clean” – or in this case, you can do spelling in bed.
