Stupid vaccination

Being the responsible employee I am, I went and got a flu vax shot on Monday. They were offered to everyone at my workplace and seeing as my entire team is made up of contract workers (no work = no pay) I decided that even with my fear of needles, it'd be bad form for me to not get vaccinated, get the flu and make everyone in my team sick (as I said, no work = no pay).

There was mention that you may feel some slight flu after-effects, but I was doing OK for a whole day and a half with nothing but a sore arm to whinge about. All changed last night though - now I'm stuck at home with a throat so scratchy I just want to rip it out. It hurts to talk so I'm working remotely from home when I can concentrate enough between naps.

I wonder if the universe is trying to tell me that I should just be less considerate next time... Did I mention no work = no pay?

Still I guess this time at home has given me and opportunity to work in close proximity to my stash - I'm eyeing off this great length of viscose that I had initally bought to make some cute PJ pants (it is sooooo soft) but since it's been such a warm day I'm getting ideas for a summer dress (even though it is now technically autumn over here).

I'm looking at Simplicity 2663 which seems to be a fairly new pattern - unfortunately there seems to be no reviews on this one anywhere in the blogosphere so I might just have to try my luck!
