She had the virus, but didn’t know. Working in the NHS, maybe increased her chances.... particularly as everyone in her department had contracted it. She was asymptomatic it seems. In her mind, she was in invincible! (Might’ve been an idea to get tested though!)

Before Christmas she drove to Devon, somewhere the virus hadn’t yet completely ravaged, to see the family. Four days later, back home, she heard that daughter-in-law, a teacher, was really sick with the virus... the only one in the area and at school. So they closed it.

Probably best to keep schtum about that!...🤐

    Yes, probably best to keep schtum about that but to be fair, she did not know. How many people had it and did not know?
    On the other hand... it is easy to test oneself 🙄 True story, I noticed?

    Hi Frenchie. Yes, true story, not us but a relative. The afflicted teacher (a lovely woman we know very well) and her family were never told... but I understand they’re very suspicious! Btw, I left a note on the last of your Tony drabbles about a movie we loved and, given your stated happy ending preference, I thought you might like it. And it’s French and still on iPlayer for a bit. Nice romantic stuff... you see, I just a big girl’s blouse at heart!😁

    hahahaha, that is nice to know but I have always suspected that 😁 Yes, I got the name of the film. Thank you. That will be my day off watching 😉
