My recent covid diary....

Last Thursday .... 29th July ....

I suspect I'll have covid in the next day or so. My youngest son bought it back from a festival last weekend and now Karen my wife is developing symptoms and about to book her confirmatory test... ho hum. I'll let you know how it goes.

Friday 30th July ...

Karen's positive btw - alot of noisy coughing and spluttering in bed at 3 am this morning- I had to leave the room 🙄 ... But when is she NOT noisy! She's gone for her official test this morning and says she's had worse colds ... one of the lucky ones .. but overall she's relieved to finally have it after all the scary stories.. So far 3 of my kids and my wife have had it.. It's not nice... My uncle died of it last year but he was an alcoholic and living in Nigeria ...

Today...  Sunday 1st August - to my mountain biking group....

Much as I want to ride I'm going to take it easy today : give it a miss.  Feeling fine but with Will and Karen recovering at home I don't want to tempt fate....

Today...  Sunday 1st August - to my paragliding guru in France who asked how I was feeling....

haha - i think i've had a few assaults over the last 18 mths ... tickly cough, earache. headache... all lasting hours not days and only notable because of all the fear floating around ... this week I've been trying really hard to get it ... sleeping with my ill wife until her coughing in my face meant i couldn't sleep... Telling my son to take his mask off ffs in my house! Hopefully I'll get it soon! Cancelled my ride this morning with the boys as I feel a little tired this morning and don't want them to get it (if I'm a super spreader 😱) as we still have some kick ass enduro mtb trails to build for our next comp (I was out with my mattock digging yesterday though)  .....fingers crossed. heh
Karen's feeling much better i can tell because she's talking alot again🤭
