Don't Stand So Close To Us

Police:Don't Stand so close

So it is official.  Both Marcus and Agata are sick as dogs. Don't stand so close to us is the advice we gave to people trying to get into a lift with us this afternoon.

What are our Symptoms?

  • Fever
  • Severe headache
  • Weakness
  • Diarrhoea
  • Feeling Sick
  • Stomach Pain
  • Restriction of Airways
  • Unable to lie down because we can't breathe in that position

Now I know what you are thinking.   You too have visited the CDC webpage and checked out Ebola Signs and Symptoms

All we can say is that we both feel awful but that this will not stop us trying to attempt a marathon run in a day or so. 

Any Advantages?

Agata is too sick to goto work so she is working from Home. It is wonderful for her to be here, that at least is a benefit.

An Indulgence Recovery Plan

Sick as we were we stumbled to the Supermarkets.  Whilst the shopping was pretty healthy can you see the indulgent chocolate bar in the bottom right hand corner as well as the wine hiding underneath the hummus and pomegranates oranges and greens. [As you recall we have nominally changed our diets to exclude chocolate]

This week Aldi also had a promotion on Axes and Chainsaws.   Perhaps they know something about the Zombie Ebola apocalypse that we do not?


All we can say is that our favourite Malbec wine  is back in stock and we deserve some extra bottles to anaesthetise our pains.

As a final xtravagance we bought some Coop chicken breasts.  Note the astonishing price of 25 CHF per Kg.  (UK Asda price is 12CHF per Kg, 25CHF is 26 USD)

So despite the pains we try to keep smiling.
