Catch up?  They've been running it for years - there's probably hundreds to watch!

That aside, my attention is so poor that there's not much I watch of anything uninterrupted for more than a few minutes.  Seriously.

But I shall have a bash at watching some of it.

Ally I completely sympathise with you.There seem to be various really nasty cold viruses going around at the moment.

I haven't been out in public areas without a mask either ally, and I too have some sort of stinking cold virus.
 Last night I had a trip out to the local Urgent Treatment Centre for an ear infection and I was ushered into a quiet isolation area with a bed straight away, despite telling the triage nurse I had done a Covid test with a negative result. At least I was seen quickly and handed my antibiotics so I didn't have to hang around A&E.


I caught my cold from my husband. He wears a mask at work and in public. He gets really annoyed by people not social distancing or mask wearing. What winds him up the most is people who wear their mask as a neck warmer or otherwise incorrectly. Particularly shop staff.


I hope you begin to feel better soon and some of the symptoms start to subside  :f_hug:

Sunny, the great news is ITV has put a hold on the I'm a Celeb shows for Friday, Saturday and Sunday so that you can catch up 😀

 :f_hug:  sorry to hear that ally.


I met with a friend for lunch on Friday and the weekend before she'd been incapacitated and off her feet with a virus. She physically was able to get a PCR done Monday and the results came back negative so she (ex GP) immediately thinks she had flu. She looked pretty tough when I saw her on Friday and I wished that I had had the assertiveness to postpone as I really hadn't been happy to meet up with her. The BMJ cite a false negative PCR rate of 30% so even a negative doesn't mean you're definitely negative. I think the key thing ally, is unlike my friend, you're right to assume you do have it and take measures not to pass it on and protect others so you're doing what we all need to do. I'm taking 1000mg vitamin C, zinc, echinacea and a multivitamin daily in the hope of bolstering my protection in case my friend was actually positive.


I'm due to go to the ballet on Friday, tickets bought 2 years ago 1 year ahead of the show which was then postponed due to Covid. You can't ask for a refund because you don't want to sit in a theatre with thousands of people. I'm just going to go, masks will be mandatory at least and I will take hand gel.

Whatever it is, big hugs.

I hope you've got all you need in terms of things like food supplies.

We haven’t been out in public areas without a mask.  We’re not mixing with many people, and avoiding the public the best we can when out.  Yet, we’ve gone down with the virus from hell.  We’ve had for two weeks now, and, it’s still ongoing.  The worse throat infection we’ve ever had.  Upper respiratory infection, nose bleeds, coughing,  the lot.  We’ve done lateral flow tests at home which were all negative.  To make sure it wasn’t covid, my husband went online on a government site to have PCR tests.  However, we’re not eligible, as we’re out of time to have one.   Same with covid stations.  Therefore, there must be many in our situation.  We could have covid, but, can’t find out. Hopefully, it’s just a virus that’s hitting many people now, and, it’s not covid.

I don't think the government saying it will be enough by itself.  It'll take widespread social pressure.  We'll see how that works out.

It's been announced by BJ (only just cottoned on to the irony of his initials) that mask wearing in public indoor places will become mandatory again due to the latest variant found from foreign and national residents.

I met up with my friend yesterday and she's watching Strictly avidly. She thinks Rose is the best celeb dancer and thinks she'll win. It will be interesting to see. Absolutely awesome that someone with no hearing at all can be the best dancer out of all the non professional dancers when music is widely considered to be a key element. And that shows the world so much about disability. I love it. I haven't seen any of the other dancers so I have no view as to whether she will win but her dancing is awesome. I hope she continues dancing after the show ends because she's clearly discovered that she loves it.

Last year a contestant had to inject several times a day and couldn't get out of bed for a while until the injection worked. I can't remember what their condition was but campmates naturally made reasonable adjustments for them only expecting them to do what they could do which wasn't an equal share of the chores. Every year it's possible to see the good in humanity in the camp and sometimes not so good in people. I've just seen Richard Madely's recorded goodbye to his campmates, it was really moving, he seems a really nice guy. You get to know the real people behind the faces of celebrities in this show. When they're "in the world" you never know if what you are seeing is the real them because most of us put on a face to the world but with cameras on you 24/7 capturing your every word, snore and bogey pick, your real you is there to see. I'm excited to watch this evening's show when I get up tomorrow, the excitement isn't helping me sleep  :f_laugh:
