My second day of medical leave means I only had a two-day work week. Yiiikes. That’s 10 hours of lessons that I’ve missed, and that I’ll have to make up for, somehow. In my defence, I did go in to work. I was simply deemed unfit by my Principal when he saw heard me and was told to go home.

So. That’s another afternoon at home of surfing the net while sleeping in between meds.

While blog hopping, I came across this Remake / Photo project by Adobe and Booooooom (yes, that’s SEVEN ‘O’s), where people were invited to remake a famous work of art using photography. The result was breathtaking and ingenious for the most part and I’m in awe of the amount of creativity that was displayed by many of them. Here are some of my favourites:
