What strange times we are living through! This morning my wife had to phone 111 because our youngest daughter - who is living with us - developed a dry cough which has persisted for 24 hours. I too have developed what feels like a cough and cold with a dry throat. Unable to take our temperatures due to the fact that thermometers are sold out everywhere we thought it worth a phone call for advice on what to do. The result is 14 days isolation for all of us, Chloe's boyfriend has also been staying over so that's the four of us stuck indoors together for the next two weeks! The nurse was very reassuring and said that unless the symptoms get much worse then there is no need to attend hospital for testing. At the moment it feels like a mild case of flu.
Luckily I have my figure painting to keep me occupied and I am able to get outdoors to exercise Poppy the dog avoiding other dog walkers that I might see.
I finished these six Portuguese cavalry for John C yesterday, they are of course 20mm castings and looking rather splendid in yellow coats with blue turned back cuffs. The trumpeter is in reverse colours. I have some Spanish infantry and a mounted provost left to finish before I return the box to John but I will need to check re how this virus is transmitted first.
