Ellie and Markus are once again out of commission. They have caught a random errant bug that leaves them both sniffly and coughing and feeling more than slightly gross. Ellie was home from school on Thursday due to an extreme case of the sniffles that brought on an even more Extreme Case of Drama. Friday is a public holiday in honour of the Queen's birthday (not her real birthday but she's here in Perth right now, so that's just as good!). We'll use this weekend for good times and downtime so they can rest and recoup.
