    Out of Action :(

    I love making things difficult for my employers!

    Fell over on Friday (no drink involved) and duly broke my right wrist Out of action now for 4-6 weeks. Don't know what I'm going to do with myself, I HATE not working Already emailed all my schools to let them know I'd be happy to help over phone/remote but I doubt that will tide me over long :/

    Ah well, time to queue up the videos

    Poor you!

    Daytime TV is mind-numbing; only bearable if you have heavy 'flu and can doze through it.

    I guess the problem is getting to work rather than actually doing any work

    Ouch, I can't stand being off work. Could you not go in and do "some" work?

    Sorry to hear that - is it that you aren't allowed to drive? TBH most people I know who break a wrist tend to drive anyway after about 2 weeks!
    If you are stuck at home you could study or even get very fit (other than weight-lifting, of course)

    I probably could drive, but won't be insured to do so, so it's not worth the risk. Might change my mind by 2 weeks time though
    Would love to study something but can't afford the exams at the end of it

    Trouble with going in to work is with insurance again. If you're signed off, you really shouldn't go in. May be possible for your employer to get this sorted, but check first!

    Doctors, at least around here, only tend to sign off for a max of 2 weeks at a time,and they also leave it very much up to you whether you think you can drive or not (recent experience with torn calf). My doctor said that as long as he didnt state that I shouldnt drive,the insurance would be fine
