I really can't be bothered going to work today. It's raining. And cold. Plus Milly's asleep on my knee. I'm not convinced that "Sorry, I had a dog sleeping on me," would be a good enough excuse for not going though. How about "Sorry, the dog was asleep on me and my clothes got covered in dog hair, so I had to wash them."? Nah, probably not. Oh well, better go.
