Sixth patient in BFs family, the 9-year-old niece. She's been pretty sick.

Went to the office, which was fun because there were a lot of colleagues (relatively speaking), felt a bit like old times.

Of course the reason that there were so many people was that five or six of them had their last day, plus two others had had their last day and came in to hand in their things. And my team manager came to say hi to them. Did have to choke back the tears.

One of the squirrels had made its way into our living room. I have my day off, when dad came down and opened the door he saw Squirly jumping at the window, trying to escape. He was making a lot of noise. As dad opened the French door, Squirly ran under a chair. We haven't seen him since, we assume that he has run out by now.

Squirly knocked over a plastic tiger, a painting my grandfather made, and the wooden windmill I made years ago. The tiger didn't survive but fortunately the painting is OK.

We have no idea how it came in and we can only assume it ran out since there's no noise or anything and we can't find it.

We had a possum running around our bedroom one night a few weeks ago after it got caught with the blinds down on our back veranda. I’d gone out there because I heard noise in the middle of the night and it ran in the back door in its confusion. I eventually got it out after catching it in a large basket. A pair of them had been living in our roof. Two days after that I managed to spot them both going out for the night and blocked the gap where they were getting in. No more scratching in the roof.

Sounds scary.

As it turned out, the squirrel was still in the living room. We managed to coax it out after watching it eat some nuts and climb up the curtains.

8 patiens in BFs close family now.

But at least we're now in a squirrel-free house.

I hope no-one’s getting too sick. Is your BF vaccinated?

Yep, BF and both his parents and his sisters and their spouses are all vaccinated. Part of that quarantine thing is that the patient must be in quarantine in a room and none of his family join him, but my nephew who contracted it at school is 6 and quite a handful, leaving him alone in a room is no option. Their floor was being renewed so they couldn't go into quarantine in their house, to they took it to BFs mother. There they didn't obey the quarantine either so BFs mother got sick and then BF got it later.

Niece got it at school as well. Of the 11 family members there 4 have gotten sick, and 4 of them had already had their booster. BF is still under the weather but all the rest are doing fine.

Currently 9 out of 11 immediate inlaws have caught it. BF is improving but still a bit under the weather. His sister and her partner are still sick, all the others have recovered.

Not much news to report. I'm trying to write my COVID diary and found this forum a useful source on day-to-day notes.

I've been almost totally preoccupied with getting our back garden ready for chickens. We've been planning on it for a while, but then Julie got two chickens as a going away present finishing up her last job, so I've been working long days in the garden for about three weeks now. Clearing up and reorganising the back end of the garden, putting up posts and fencing for a chicken run, modifying an old dog kennel for a temporary chicken coop and then, after they were settled in, designing and building a proper chicken coop from scrap left over from our old rear veranda. It was almost finished in situ by this evening, just a handful of details to sought out in the morning.

My music has been almost on standby throughout, just playing a little piano and guitar, but I've managed to write a new composition and I'm looking forward to getting back to my music thing full time on Monday.

Is BF okay and have you avoided catching it Bonny?

Well, it's one advantage of a long distance relationship :D I haven't seen BF since January 2. My next stay is planned for next weekend (his sister will be away for the weekend so he's got to house-sit for their two bunnies and three guinea pigs) . I hope they'll all be better by then since I have no intention of catching it whatsoever.

Glad to hear it Bonny. I haven’t been sleeping too well for a while - it’s this bloody weather. I’m feeling pretty good otherwise. A couple of other tasks have kept me busy so far this week and I only got back to drums and sax today.

Went to the dentist, am Ok.

Cleaned the squirrel feeder. ewwewewew Our squirrels don't like sunflower pips, apparently - a lot of them had sprouted. I scattered the sprouts, hope we may be getting some sunflowery goodness here.

The squirrels haven't been around much since the Big Squirly Adventure of 2 Feb, and we miss them. Hopefully they'll come back more often now that the box is clear and filled with yummy new nuts and pips.

Maybe tomorrow?

I’ve been hearing about the storms up there. It’s pretty bad in the UK as well. I hope you’re okay Bonny, that’s a pity about the trains.

Covid has hit my niece and her young son in Sydney.

Sorry to hear that... hope they'll recover soon.

I had to give up on visiting my boyfriend, we're both a bit gutted about that (it's been a while - but also, we'd be staying in his sister's house, since she's on vacation, so we'd have some space for ourselves). We're now on our third storm this week, after Delano and Eunice we now have Franklin around.


In the mean time I play Pandemic a lot, the co-op board game I've taken a shine to.
