It’s been another changeable day weather-wise. One minute chucking it down, next minute glorious sunshine. Barry and I waited patiently for a fine period, then nipped out to use our allowed daily exercise to buy fresh farm eggs and source abandoned wood for the brazier.
You can see the stark difference above once the sun breaks through the clouds.
There were plenty of eggs at Blackberry Farm, and a good stock of logs and sticks on the path around the reservoir. The bags were rather heavy on the walk back to the boat though!
I then had a remarkably relaxing afternoon sat soaking up the sun in the cratch, as Kim cooked from the kitchen. Sublime! We’ll light the brazier and batter some cod to go with the roasted vegetables made for us.
A rather pleasant day in our bubble mooring. Simple pleasures …
COVID-19 Symptom Tracker Update
Barry and I have reported no symptoms to the App again today. Last night we watched the latest webinar from the team – which included the USA lead Dr Andrew Chan. It sounds as though they’re doing a great job over there too, and it seems that Sweden has now joined too. The main points I wrote down this week were:
- There’s uncertainty around antibody formation – severe infections don’t necessarily produce high levels of antibodies, and some mild infections lead to high levels of antibody levels
- It seems to be possible to have COVID-19 and NOT produce any antibodies
- The level of testing in the USA is very low.
- It’ll be interesting to monitor the research in Sweden where there has been no lockdown and their way of life has changed very little.
Unfortunately it doesn’t sound like either the government or NHS England are coming on boar – unlike their Welsh and Scottish counterparts. For me that defies all sense and logic. Let’s hope one day they wake up for the sake of us all 🙁
