    Speaking of sanitiser, I never thought there would be a time when my hands would consume more alcohol than I do.

    Well, prepare for total and unintended lockdown at this rate .......

    Aforementioned bloke (and his family, including his kids who should be at school) are now self - isolating, until either 14 days have elapsed, or he tests negative.

    He's been up half of the night, trying to get a test of any description.
    By putting in his actual postcode, he gets "no tests" at all.
    By putting in a local postcode, he's been offered tests in :

    Elgin
    Dornock
    Aberdeen (Airport).

    He's in sunny Staffs.


    According to the NHS website, there are no postal tests.



    On the basis that most of the country is going to have a sniffle in the coming weeks and months, we're all going (at some point) either have to hide for a fortnight, or take a test that you can't actually access.......

    My wife still has pneumonia and still getting small AF's, but not quite as bad as it was, which is a small comfort.
    Think it's going to be a long journey but heading in the right direction.
    Thank you for asking.
