My daughter in law now has coronavirus!
She had a test last Friday but did not get the result until Monday.She has been quite poorly and today feels achy,tired and dizzy.Angus was negative .Fin did not get tested.It means that Matt has to start again on self isolation for two weeks from when Jude started with it eeven though he has had Covid.The boys also have to do the extended isolation.Fin is in the Upper Sixth and has A levels next summer.He is missing so much school.They all live in Cambridge. Meanwhile in Northwich,Cheshire our granddaughter Emily has been in contact with someone who tested positive so she is in self isolation for two weeks.The has GCSEs next summer. Our granddaughter ,Ella, who is in her final year at Manchester university has also been contacted by Track and Trace and has to self isolate.Three different locations and Coronavirus is rife.Just a snapshot of the whole of the UK. Our concern is that Sarah,our daughter,who is a Type 1 diabetic catches it from Emily. Worries,worries, worries. We are hibernating .Not going in any shops.Going out in car and then having a walk in the countryside.We discovered a super new walk yesterday along an old railway line,walking in dappled sunshine beneath the trees with not another soul in sight.It did our souls good. Hope you are all keeping safe. Barbara
