Please excuse Jodie from day-job attendance for at least the next school term. She is suffering a bubonic type illness, generally known as "cannotus-be-stuffedus", coupled with a distinct inability to arise from slumber at a time conducive to attendance. She is exhibiting a not uncommon but somewhat unhealthy attachment to flannel pyjamas and chenille dressing gowns that will in time, require a full intervention before she can resume her regular work schedule.
She also appears to be experiencing increasing dread at the ten concert preparation weeks ahead and I am led to believe may have, already, thrown one winged-costume induced tantrum. This, along with the patients slight obsession to move no further than 10 metres from her sewing room, leads me to believe that forced attendance would be detrimental to her fragile state.
Jodie has recently exhibited subtle signs of dissatisfaction with certain elements of her day job, most obviously the issue of actually having to go there and I feel she may need to be given some time to work through these issues.
I recommend Jodie be allowed to work completely from home, puddling and noodling at whatever takes her fancy with absolutely no restrictions, deadlines or meetings. I strongly believe this to be the only treatment conducive to a cure.
