Operation Distraction will go full force now. I intend to up my posting frequency – to a blog post per day or so. Not least because *I* need the distraction. I am just back from the local pharmacy where my husband – he of the pulmonary fibrosis – regularly buys his tablets. They know him well there, and the pharmacist asked me whether Mr Guylty was looking after himself. I said that hubster has been working, albeit in private houses (as a painter and decorator), until yesterday, and was planning to travel to Wales for a family reunion next weekend. I said it jokingly, in the wink-wink “exasperated wife” kind of way. However, the pharmacist and his assistant’s reaction was everything but jokey. He *vehemently* and very seriously, without the slightest hint of a smile, said to me, that “under no circumstance” was Mr Guylty to travel at this time. In fact, with a serious respiratory illness (fibrosis is the scarring of lung tissue, causing shortness of breath and inability to breathe) he needs to stay at home and protect himself from any exposure to the virus. No visitors, and if that cannot be avoided, the visitors need to wear a face mask! A safe distance of 2 meters between him and others (except immediate family, of course); decluttering the house in order to limit the number of surfaces where the virus could settle; replacing towels after one use. Shoes and coats should be left at the door and not taken into the main living areas. Frequently touched items (door handles, desk, table, taps) need to be wiped down and cleaned with soap and water on a regular basis. I am writing this here to remind anyone who has a vulnerable person in their household, to not treat this virus outbreak nonchalantly. Despite my own trip cancellation, I was still secretly thinking that I was overreacting and that everything would be fine if we just went into isolation for two weeks. The pharmacist has given me three months’ worth of my husband’s tablets. He believes that the crisis is far from “managed” yet. I am embarking on a deep clean of my house.
Cod knows it needs it, anyway.
And now some happy feels by way of the weekly round-up. It’s time for a new header, I think.
Yep, even despite the fact that some of us have had to forego the pleasure of seeing UV live, I’d like to support the production by using one of their stills as the current header.
- Hehe, I found this little note about TS by hidden-but very funny
- I think this cute little illustration by chaostwinsofdestruction would also somewhat fit the Richard Armitage fandom
- Oooh, World Sleep Day totally passed me by. Thanks for the beautiful reminder, Mezzmerizedbyrichard!
- Ok, not sure whether it is really good to dignify rule-breaking by linking to pictures taken during a play. But then again – Dr Astrov. Posted by liloutook
- Sinnaminie made the two dolls of Trevor and Sypha in Castlevania. Hilarious
- The two Price men chatting. I’d like to see the scene immediately *after* this one made into a gif. “Your Dick!” 😂 Giffed by 51kas81
- OMG, look at this birthday cake!!! Theelvenvalkyrie has the best friends!
- In times of social distancing, let’s live vicariously through mezzmerizedbyrichard’s lip
-locking-smacking gif set
- Crazytxgradstudent hits the nail on the head. We have the smug pleasure of having known for a long time…
- Confession: I haven’t watched Castlevania s3 yet, but riepu10’s gif set of Trevor and Sypha really makes me want to watch, soon
- Also, you can use riepu10’s gifs of Richard’s interview for Penguin Books as a continuous loop – mood enhancer!
Short, sweet. And now for some cleaning *meh*
Look after yourselves, stay safe and have a nice weekend, all!
