Interestingly, it would have been around this time of year that @QF WP had been organizing such events.

I am sure I am among many who say thankyou for your efforts over the years.

Get well soon, if not already and look forward to catching up.

I guess I the tour had been this weekend we would have needed a boat.

One of these days I'll test -ive (last test Saturday and still +ive) and be back at work and be able to arrange any tours. A month +ive is debilitating (both mentally and physically, as well as financially)

From Qld Health:​

Return to work​

A staff member who has completed their period of isolation and no longer has symptoms is free to return to work.

You should not ask them to produce a negative test before they can return to work.

This is because most people who get COVID-19 will continue to test positive for some time after they have recovered, even though they no longer have COVID-19 and are no longer infectious.

We were told it’s a pointless excercise to keep testing after the first +ive, and that we could return to work after isolating for the 7 days. Starting from day of first +ive test. As long as we are symptom free.

The joys of continuing to have symptoms and therefore unabale to see clients or go anywhere where a -ive test result is required. Yes, Aged Care clients I'm having to deal with via telephone (not so easy when coughing a lung up).

Ah. My apologies. I didn’t realise you still had symptoms. Graham bounced back after 3 days. I’m still coughing, and it always gets worse when I’m on a call. I’ve been working from home for 2 years (and loving it)

I hope you get better soon.

I’m trying but it’s not going away @kpc. Getting very frustrated. 4.5 weeks, losing money as I can’t see clients. Whilst I love being at home (and so does my wife, dinner is ready every night she gets home), I’m over it.

I just want to get back to travelling to see clients

Finally, my test on Saturday was negative. When I got the result on waking Sunday morning, celebrated.

Only lasted 6 hours at work today (worked from home yesterday).

Right, now to think about this Do

It’s good to be partly back. Went to the PO for the first time in 6 weeks - manager was starting to get worried…

Well, this Kangaroo will be in BNE for part of the weekend owing to me flying out to LRE to enjoy the QF experience. Given JQ and QF's sales on BNE recently, I'd be more than happy to join everyone else to BNE when this gets organized (supposing it's not in June/July when I will be on summer holidays).

After you have chucked out the junk mail there's not much left for your attention 😁
Respectfully disagree! I can clearly see a Virgin Wines offer in that mail. If it's anything like I received last year (i.e. 2000 bonus points + 14 bottles of wine and stemware for $99) I'd hardly consider that junk 😂

is that the one where you have to sign up to receive regular wines and then you cancel as soon as you get your offer delivered (I wonder how many times I can do that)

Correct, although I cancel once those 2000 bonus points were deposited. I'm still working my way through the wine collection as I'm not much of a heavy drinker.
