@Nicole - hope you recover soon!

I had a completely shit day yesterday because my internet crapped out. Ah, the joys of mobile technology...Dead

My better half has been running around with her poor father in and out of hospital for eye operations. He had cataracts removed, and a detached retina fixed, except they fucked up the retina bit, so he's now had 3 surgeries. At the same time, it's messed up all his blood thinners.

Otherwise, we're not bad. The numbers of new COVID cases are really low here - 2 days with none, and then 2 new cases yesterday. We're on the brink of easing back to a Level 2 lockdown. The details of what that means will be released today.

When we got eased back to Level 3 last week, people went fucking nuts because the fast food outlets were all open again. The country got through five weeks of normal takeaway consumption in a week!LOL Might not be much COVID, but there'll be plenty of obesity and diabetes...

My husband has had no symptoms but we've both had to stay completely self-isolated. Luckily we have been able to get food deliveries and friends have been very good dropping off the few bits we needed during the week on the doorstep. 

The worse part of this was not being ill itself, though that sucked, but telling my Dad over the phone that I was ill. The last time I heard my Dad cry like that was when my Mum died. 

I'm not sure how I got it (and I am sure it was Covid-19) because I've been being extremely careful. Maybe I touched my face while out shopping without thinking and didn't even realise I did it. So I suppose let this being a warning to everyone, you are not safe no matter how many precautions you take. It only takes one slip up. 


Christ I'm scared enough over this without having it. Must have been terrifying to actually come down with it. Shocked

But if you have it and recover you get immunity right? That's got to be some silver lining.

As far as I´ve heard it doesn´t completely guard you from contracting the virus Again, but it should make your body more capable of fighting the virus.

Most of what they know of the virus is from studying the behaviour of other coronaviruses. Which would imply some immunity to reinfection, but decreasing over time. If that's true of Covid-19 then hopefully the world can get the virus spread under control before those who have already had it become vulnerable again (in about one year, I think it said).

Thanks everyone for the well wishes. I am feeling more like myself every day but I'm still coughing a bit, though not constantly. I just feel lucky that this would be considered merely mild, because I haven't ever felt this sick in my life.

Got to say I'm pretty horrified by these eased lockdown rules coming into effect today. It not only feels far too soon given our high death toll in the UK but they also read like Boris is just giving in to everyone who's been breaking the previous rules up until this point.

We're easing it a bit more here in New Zealand too, but we haven't got near the problems you've had in the UK! I'm still working at home for a bit longer yet.

Which means all the fuckwits will take it as carte blanche to do whatever they want.

I think your powers that be were generally more on the ball over this. My post from March 13th says it all really:

Over here Boris Johnson is basically saying 'Brits will die, family will lose loved ones, carry on.' 

I was feeling more sympathetic to Boris when he brought the lockdown in and then when he got sick himself, but what little confidence I had in the man is pretty much gone now.

If we get a second peak of the virus Boris better fucking resign on the spot, that's all I can say. 

Other countries are managing to curb this. We could to, if we didn't have so many idiots and our leadership took a firmer line. I know they are worried about the economy but they should be more worried about saving lives.

It’s nothing to do with how many idiots we have Adam. No different in that regard to any other country. There’s just no enforcement of the rules. Folk have been congregating in my local town centre throughout and no one is ever challenged. As you say, a stronger message should be and should have been coming from the top.

I finally managed to complete my review series of every King Diamond studio album, concluding today with writing a review of The Spider's Lullabye. Now I just need the time and opportunity to post them.

I'm getting so sick of hearing even the first nano-second of this fucking Fabreeze ad that keeps playing on Spotify.

Fucking ebay are right taking the piss this afternoon.

I made one mistake on shipping label, realised the second I was clicking pay (too late) and immediately ordered it voided. This all happened in less than a minute.

They now say my sale doesn't exist and won't let me re-book the shipment. It's a Hermes collection item and has to be booked through ebay (or pay far more than paid P&P plus the sale price). It's now getting on for two hours later and I still can't rebook, nor have they refunded the original label. 

I also have the buyer getting onto me wondering what's going on. Angry
