Our aussie lodger decided to stay elsewhere last night, for that reason.

HELLO FORKERS!

Well I spent yesterday between the bed and the toilet. I phoned mum to say I couldnt do the hospital run, and she had been the same. We assumed we had food poisoning from the buffet at the party, but no one else was affected. By lunch time I figured Norovirus as I ached all over as well. My sister did the hospital trip. Lots of signs up at the hospital warning of norovirus. One ward in lockdown because of it. It looks like we picked it up in EAU on Friday.

My dad thought he should go home to look after mum!

My sister opened mums back door, threw a large pack of dettol wipes through, and legged it.

I'm feeling a lot better, about to start boil washing all towels and sheets and  bleaching all surfaces.

 

It's the weekend people lighten up!!!!

I hope you are on the mend soon,marion. Did you have a flu jab.?

I have only had flu twice. Both times it came on very quickly, and I spent three days in bed with every joint aching. Painkillers, manuka honey and lemon juice helped me.

I hope you have someone local to call on if necessary.

Something of an apology.

I think posting local events would be a good idea. It may help gardeners to get in touch with other like minded people in their area, instead of feeling isolated.

My niece and great niece aren't going, otherwise we could get five generations of the female line in one photo, since I am a great aunt too.

Yesterday, I spent another five hours at the hospital. I got a free hot orange chocolate at the costa, as I have spent so much in there recently. Comfort food. I suspect I am going to put back on the five pounds I lost this summer. Today we are going to buy a new mattress for mums bed. It has to be a 6 inch memory foam, so that the electric lifter will work under it, to raise dad up to a sitting position, and stop the strain on mums back.  A special foam mattress goes on top of that, to stop bed sores.

Then we are going to my great aunt sylvia's 99th birthday party. This is an interim one. She is planning a big one for next year.

Its a set of adverts advertising cheese. I was rolling around laughing last night. In my defence, I had spent another 5hours at the hospital, and had a large glass of wine when I got back.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
