A very quick update to say that my “cold” turned into viral symptoms but I have been advised by 111 that they won’t swab me for Corona because I have no relevant travel or contact. I don’t need to self -isolate but I do feel like utter BS and have done for about five days. The shortness of breath started yesterday and prompted me to seek advice. That part continues into today but I have the added problem of congestion = vertigo and have already fallen into a lamp post on my attempt to get my kid to school today. Basically I don’t feel great and was hoping to write a longer post this week on something more relevant to the blog I don’t feel able, currently.
As a precaution I am not using public transport, seeing the grandparents or going into shops but the children are okay and are so far moving between schools and events. Well, for now at least given the rapidly changing advice.
Either way I hope to be able to publish something next week I hope you are all well.
UPDATE: As of this evening I will be following the new UK health advice which is to self isolate for seven days. I wish this had been the advice sooner – hopefully I will feel able to post properly again soon!
UPDATE: 13th March 202 …found out just now that if I am fever free by Sunday a full seven days from the beginning I can get out of the isolation and run free! So I am officially not on day one but day five. Doh! Much better news, fingers crossed for then!
