Yep, we’ve been confined to quarters. The week before last, Barry developed a cold, he was unwell but kept on working, then he developed a hacking cough…a few days later I had a sore throat and a temperature of 40.5 and could not get warm!! I went to the pandemic website, filled in the questionnaire and was prescribed Tamiflu. I had Swine Flu and felt a bit alarmed….The next morning Barry filled in the questionnaire too and he was prescribed the same. How on earth were we to pick up these prescriptions? Barry phoned Tesco’s pharmacy and they gave us the number of a flu friend, someone from social services came and delivered our meds with a long arm and quickly left! I recovered quickly after taking the Tamiflu but Barry was a bit too far down the line and needed anti biotics for a chest infection. His GP came round to see us at home, she came nowhere near me for some reason lol. We are both fine now thank goodness. No side effects either. It feels strange to have had the flu and not have either a sinus infection or something.
now I’ve got 30 members for my Fluff-n-Stuff group, I will be holding held a ballot for either a bump of hand dyed by me fibre or a boxy project bag. Click here
Well done Puddytatpur, you won!
I did manage to get out at the end of last week though and had coffee and cake with Michel Roux, he is such a charming man!
