We have had the dreaded D&V bug at work. What makes me really cross is the fact that I have heard, that the bug was brought in by a visitor onto the ward, passed it on to their already sick relative and now its gone round other patients and staff. That's the last thing people need when they are already seriously ill. Some people are so selfish and have no idea what problems this can cause.
sick last week, but was well enough to go to work. I was really pleased
that I managed to battle through without having time off. Two of my
colleagues in my team and ward staff were off with D&V last
week. But this morning I
had no choice – I won't go into detail, work it out for yourself! I was on 'three episodes' of sickness over
the last year and now because I am off ill today I will now be on 'four

Thick snow here again this morning and icicles hanging from the guttering. Saw my robin briefly from the kitchen window today. A blackbird managed to polish off the entire dish of mealworms by himself without interruptions! Lots of gulls flying low over the gardens I noticed, which is unusual, so they must be hungry.
I didn't eat all day, because I couldn't, but had two dry ryvita's this evening.
