Argh! The COVID!!!
I was thinking . . . these days I rarely just write stuff here purely for the sake of it. At best, there'll be some pictures dumped, and maybe some commentary explaining those pictures but not a commentary without pictures. So let's change that then. Big news recently was a positive confirmation of Covid-19 affecting A******. He had started feeling off on Wednesday 15th September. He felt worse the following day and so took the day off school. Lateral flow results were negative but I think, nonetheless, we went for the proper PCR test on Thursday night. At least I think it was Thursday - that would make sense. Possibly a positive result takes longer to confirm then a negative result, so maybe the time it took to get the result back should have been a sign - about 24 hours. Around Friday tea time we received confirmation of A******'s positive result, and so the 10 day isolation began (retrospectively, as the symptoms began the previous day). Fortunately the symptoms were fairly mild, but I think it was the sort throat and headaches that bothered A****** the most, sometimes feeling like having swallowed razor blades, one would imagine. Anyway . . . he got better, with just one or two minor symptoms remaining, that we're keeping our eye on.

The letter P
IMG_5344.JPGSo yeah . . . I've started this Open University course about improving one's camera skills. One such assignment involved taking pictures of things that resemble letters of the alphabet. So what is this one? An O? A P? A Q maybe? Not sure . . . it's letter-like anyway . . . or at least I thought so.

More wanderings around Galgate
IMG_5372.JPGIMG_5359.JPGIMG_5354.JPG So referring back to the blog post from 19th October . . . again, I'm trying to find things outside the home that vaguely correspond to letters of the alphabet. And check this out (middle picture) - the letter E (lower case), surely, just lying around like that. The other picture (left) is just a new field / view I've found that remained slightly out of reach in the past as the path to reach this place involved crossing a field that often contains various cows, some of whom might have been bulls . . . not sure. Finally (right), another picture near home, after crossing the motorway bridge and meeting up with R******, who had forgotten his house key. Ooooopsie.

Hello. Williamson Park.

Thursday 28th October 2021

I think my last time in Cambridge pre-dates this blog . . . it was that long ago. I'm not sure when . . . perhaps either 1998 or 1999. So yeah . . . some aspects had changed and, obviously, some bits were very much as I remember them.
