How long do you think you can social distance for?
Permalink  
 


Two weeks and Im done.  And last weekend was punctuated by the Bryan Ferry concert and a small family get together.  Now trash glam daughter is finished with school and Mrs. ArrGee will be home working.  Not helped I have been struck with an ailment on Friday.  From 9am this morning, I have been trying to contact a doctor, eventually got a 3.30pm appointment at a phantom clinic with no GP.  Anyway, luckily the on call GP did call me at 5pm and by 5.40pm i had my drugs.  So now my plan is to rest up with my drugs, but probably little chance of that

Also shopping mania, where I cant remove anything from the online shop i scheduled over a week ago nor the dying flowers I sent to my mother.  There is plenty more! 

But I did get my Boomtown Rats LP.

And a load of beer delivered on the shop, even if I cant drink it for a week...

Hope you're on the mend soon. Did you worry it was covid 19?

I'm not sure how long tbh. I will try to follow the guidelines as best I can, or law if it gets that far. We had a take out tonight and wiped down the packaging but felt over cautious doing so. It is a very worrying time. However up in Cheshire, no major worries on the supermarket front so far. I hate pasta but the other half was upset as she loves it and they were out of it last week. Just the two of us these days and my work lets me out still, but with a series of health questions to ask customers first but some of them are now resisting visits so working from home more than before. I have plenty of hand gel as they supply it free, but I have some contact dermatitis as using it much more. I am getting used to it settling down by Sunday night as don't use at the weekends.

 No. Very different symptoms and i had something similar 4 years ago.  This time there is a bit of a complication though.  Drugs are the answer!

For as long as needs be just need beer music and my guitar and that's me sorted. Pity Johnson and that top doc. Didn't take heed to there own words. Fools. Running England. The only good thing here is that we are both living on an island. Which is a good thing. To Knock th C19 on the head. England should be like Ireland and just lock everything down. So we can all get bro grips with this. It can happen to you.

 I haven't had any booze since 19th March.  Still on the drugs. 4th different set.  I have another 4 or 5 days to go.  Might have a drink at Easter.  

Mrs. ArrGee reckons it is just withdrawal symptoms I have since the football/GAA stopped.

Really. Hope you get well soon. Don't worry I'll have a wee drink for you tonight. Having a wee dig at  ITLG. With a wee beer. Love playing along with  A hold of me. You take care now.

yes, have a drink for me I am on the mend, should be all fine by Monday. Took a while to get results of tests (because of Covid-19), and only on Tuesday did GP get results and changed me to the right drug. Apparently I have a super bug that resists most antibiotics. In an ideal world I would go in for a proper check up to determine cause, but will have to get by for now. Too risky to go into hospitals.

 Oddly enough. I don't like Mondays. ( Sorry couldn't resist this)But on a better note. Just right. At this time your better off just staying at home. I'm sure the good old wife will look after you.
