Cough. Sneeze. Sniffle.
WARNING. WARNING. Do not enter the Mamamia office this week. You might not find anyone here. We’re all at home sculling cough syrup and spooning our hot water bottles.
Welcome to *cough* Mamamia’s open post of the week. If you’ve just joined us, this is the place where we open the floor to you – our wonderful readers – to tell us what’s happening in your corner of the world.
We have a red card system at play here at MM (and it doesn’t involve after-work soccer games). Cough once? Red card. Sneeze? You’re OK. Sneeze twice? Yellow card. But sneeze three times? Get on the bench, kid.
First it was Mia. Then me. And today Nat’s at home being spoon fed tomato soup by her Grandma.
Meanwhile, while we’ve in and out of the office, our managing editor Jamila is in Italy eating pizza and dancing in the Trevi fountain. (Not jealous AT ALL.)
When you work in a small team like we do, it’s always tough when team members are away. But we’re making it work thanks to online chat, Vitamin C and the cafe across the road with the awesome Vanilla Slice.
Big shout out to our Mamamia and iVillage interns for all their hard work this week (and every week.)
Mia in gorman spots and stripes.
Now, over to you – what’s happening in your world?
