Actually, Jeremy was bunking off work for a week and has invented this 
great big story about being in hospital :)   ...


... Really glad to hear you're OK buddy.  We've been told Tuesday is the 
earliest we can expect to be back at work.  In the interim there's  
heaps of cleanup work in this neighbourhood.  Tomorrow I'm helping a 
working bee shovel 30cm of silt off mum and dad's place in Dallington :(

Take  care
