    Look at that beautiful pupper face up there.

    ye, get a swab, Mary. Hopefully you've got the super quick drive through ones that we've got. Like McDonalds without the trans fats.

    This is my last few hours of work before holidays and I am struggling. I know that most of my colleagues would have called POETS by now but I can't leave things undone and come back to an uproar thereby negating any good the holiday may have done. I do hope my time off helps me to get my altitude back in line. Otherwise I don't know what I will do.

    Back this evening.

    Re: International Army October 2020

    Morning everyone. Enjoy your time off Bridget, switch off and recharge your batteries. Girl I job share with brought her son for test Saturday morning last weekend and had the results Sunday evening. Negative but same symptoms as your little one Mary and think he might also have a bit of a cough.

    Off for the weekend. Itís hubbys last fishing weekend and there is a nice hotel. Was not sure up to yesterday if we would be able to go or not but luckily we have not been put on level 3 yet and neither has Cavan where we are going. Such uncertainty, very hard to plan anything. Glad you enjoyed your time away Satz. Itís the two weeks quarantine that make it impossible if you are not working from home. Hope I have WiFi over weekend, if not have a nice one and big JC.

    Re: International Army October 2020

    Morning and waves to the world,
    @IamMary.......rock and a hard place come to mind. Its prolly more likely to be the coughs and colds that just about every child get wehn they go back to school after the long summer break,,,,,,,,,,,it took less than 24 hours for Jenny and Ads to come back. Their testing is like a drive thru at Maccy Ds

    Today's tiny job is to move the sheepskin rugs back to the conservatory.................Bess claimed them for her self the minute we brought them in.

    I;ve got photos of her as a much younger pupper but their all on a discs which are in a safe place..................in other words I haven't a clue. We boxed a lot of stuff up when we were doing the re-furb................think the bread makers in one of them and the deep fat fryer. It'll be like Christmas when we go through them.

    @byebyebridgetjones..................enjoy your time away from the chaos. Lying on the settee while watching box-sets is an order.

    Although we're under a strict lockdown we are alllowed to see our bubble. She's the one I started infabts school with and lives alone.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    I always put things in a safe place where I won't lose them and then can't find them at all. You should just put bows on the boxes and open them all at Christmas time. Would be fun to see what you have that you'd forgotten about.

    What's a bubble? I mean - who decides who you can see and who you can't?

    Talked to a neighbour yesterday evening. There is a positive case of Covid in the junior high of our wee town. I am not happy. Her son goes there. He has a sister. Sister plays with the kids who live in my building. You get the picture. Apparently they are only shutting down the area of the school that the girl's classroom is in. It will be disinfected and then reopened. But what about the other classrooms, etc., I mean, unless this girl has no siblings and does social distancing with all her friends (yeah, right) she's bound to have contaminated someone. Just really getting fed up with the whole thing.

    @byebyebridgetjones - you often give me a good laugh with your posts. The comment about McDonalds with no trans fats had me holding my tummy! Hope you enjoy your time off. Don't know what your weather is like but I bet you will be able to get out and dig around in the dirt as much as possible. Mebbe plant some new fleurs or bushes. Will you have a small greenhouse again? I think I remember something about on with herbs or something. I envy those with a garden to work in. There is a garden at my building but basically it belongs to the owners and they do very little. A shame, really - there is so much space going to waste. Rather lazy buggers TBH - can't even be bothered cutting the grass and are too cheap to pay someone. Lovely fruit trees and a stone path but that's about it. The rest is just dry weeds that only get cut in the Spring. Anyway, they do have a nice green hedge all around so that helps.

    Rusters - hope you enjoy your weekend away.

    Mers - what Bridget said. Better safe than sorry...

    Satzers - I like the order you put the "cons" in. BTW - they had a light show a couple of nights ago in Athens. They have installed new lighting around the Acropolis and it is stunning. I am always in awe of that structure. And the Acropolis Museum is outstanding as well.

    Hello to Techie, Molls, KTAB and anyone lurking.

    Back to the phones. Wishing you all a good weekend!!

    Sounds like the holiday was well worth it Satz. I remember you did that course!! I presume you can get out for a walk or fresh air?

    I kept youngest off for a couple of days. Throat was sore, ok now but still has a snotty nose - should I be getting a covid test? Crossed my mind alright, but kept her out of school and symptoms are those for a cold (no temp). SIL tells me that I must.
    Your head would be wrecked with this...
    Nope. Sore throat is not one of the symptoms Mers. I heard a doctor on the other day - don't go running with snotty noses etc. Or you'll be demented.
    Look for the loss of taste - not loss of appetite.
    Temperature
    Dry cough

    life expectancy is limited.

    What do they mean by that MsA -? I thought that was already said & that you had the palliative team visiting ?

    ps
    Good luck with the marathon ....

    Yep, none of these, just a big snot machine, same as every year with her.
    I'll call the doc in the am. Just in case.

    How is Mr A doing generally @brit? Sorry to hear that news , although I did think the same as Satz. Best of luck on the marathon - that will be great for the head. Doing the Dublin half, virtually, end of Oct.

    Bridge, I Hope your not still there covering a wall with yellow post-its. Any more word on the work front?

    I think the bubble is a great idea.. My teens would probably tell me they are opting out of our bubble though.. hmm, tricky.
