In my post of December 30th (see Oh, my… cron!), I explained that Tigger’s test for Covid-19, taken at work, had come up positive and that we were in consequence “self-isolating”. As far as symptoms are concerned, we have both had what feels like a heavy cold with a cough.
We have kept ourselves entertained as best we could which, in my case, included setting up my new PC and getting to know Windows 10. Yesterday, we fired up Sainsbury’s Chop Chop and did some shopping by remote control.
According to the rules, we can test ourselves on days 6 and 7 of our isolation and, if both these tests are negative and we are symptom-free, we can go back out into the world.
The test is negative

We performed the first of those tests today and we both had a negative result. We will test ourselves again tomorrow, hoping that these tests will also prove negative.
We have been fortunate in keeping away from the virus until we had had both primary vaccinations and the booster. Fortunate, too, in that the variant that has invaded us is Omicron, know to be milder in its effects, especially in people who, like us, have had all their jabs.
I don’t underestimate the potential seriousness of this disease, even in its Omicron variant, and agree that we have been lucky to get off so lightly.
So, here’s to tomorrow…!
