    Morning All. 5.5 for me today.
    @DJC3 great fbg. @Pipp hug for the bite, little blighters. Our hedgecutter disturbed a hornets nest last week and got two stings, one up his shorts! I offered antihistamine ointment for self application and a strong coffee.
    @Debandez hope the sore eye gets better soon.
    @JohnEGreen hug for the result of the bump with the door and hope it is getting better.
    Happy weekend.

    Your choice and one you are at perfect liberty to make, just be sure if and when you catch the flu don't go to work and spread it round.

    Exactly as I said your choice but for you to have got the flu at work somebody had to bring it into the work place at some point. My wife works for the NHS and the office is a breeding ground for the flu virus and that is where she always seems to pick it up too.:)

    Just to add my apologies for taking this thread of the rails and will desist.:sorry:

    I had a very bad virus infection over 3 yrs ago ( most of the staff were off work with it ) caught from one of our very aggressive residents who likes to spit all the phlegm he can muster in your face when you are carrying out is personal care. Our delightful manager at the time refused to let staff wear masks. I had to have 3 weeks on the sick which then resulted in me having a counselling for sickness.I agree that he must have " caught" it from somewhere but if I was prone to getting the flu etc maybe then I would feel more inclined to have yet another medication pumped into me on the off chance that I might catch this seasons flu .

    Morning All. Meter said 5.0 at 07.30 which I am not sure can be right but I guess I’m somewhere in the 5s anyway.
