It has been almost a week since we had to visit Douglas, against my will as we have been trying to avoid crowds.
Gradually, over the intervening days, we have been receiving news reports of an increasing number of positive cases of the virus that have been spreading amongst customers at various venues around the town.
Neither of us have yet had our vaccinations; the programme here is moving much more slowly than across in the UK, mainly because we are only allocated a small number of vaccines at a time from the UK supplies.
I am therefore very nervous about the potential for infection and that I may have been exposed to it last week.
This morning I woke up with a sore throat. I hope that it is just one of my allergy symptoms so I shall take a paracetamol and use my throat spray.
P thinks that I am being over dramatic and just rolls his eyes, but I can't help getting twitchy.
He'll be sorry when there is nobody to wash his running kit and cook his sausages!
