Day 223

Day 223...

Today has been a fairly quiet sort of day. No rush to be out and about this morning so everything proceeded at a fairly relaxed pace.

First half of the day was spent sorting some bits and pieces out online; updating some online stuff, ordering our Hotel Chocolat advent calendars, placing a butchers order for delivery later in the week and just generally getting on top of a list of jobs.

At lunchtime Simon and I took a walk out despite the rain. Thankfully we timed it right as although it rained off and on it was never too bad. Just a couple of miles today which gave us the chance to put the world to rights.

Second half of my day was spent doing a little preschool work as it was payday today so needed to get the pay-slips issued. I still have a little admin work to complete but hopefully that will be a fairly straightforward job for tomorrow morning.

We had a little gym workout this evening; Molly and Simon braved the 'garage gym' and despite the dark and wet night it was surprisingly cosy...amazing what a small fan heater can achieve!

Lots of chatter on social media today around antibodies and t-cells. A few attention grabbing headlines were implying that because antibodies do not hang around after exposure to the dreaded virus that it was all doom and gloom. Thankfully there are enough scientists out there able to shout about t-cells and explain that there is more to immunity than just antibodies. Lots of interesting discussion that I hope will get the investigation and coverage that is needed as I fear too often when dealing with this virus that only those who shout the loudest, or who have the best connections, get to have their ideas heard. I think now more than ever we need to be open to all opinions and thought processes even if that means admitting that previous theories were wrong or have changed because what we are dealing with is new and our understanding must therefore be ever evolving as we get to grips with it all and find out more.

Where all of this leaves us I don't know, we can only hope that those with the know-how and brains are looking into all of the above to find the best way forward for all of us.

Stay safe, wash your hands, keep your distance and wear a mask.
