My best friend of 50 mumble years has moved in with me, along with her dog Bruno, some fish and assorted plants. It’s lovely having company, and someone cooking for me. We’re quickly getting into a workable routine.
Bruno is a sweetie, but Goldie is unimpressed and waits until the lights go out before coming inside. She sleeps in the car shed during the day and has food out there. When she gets on the bed with me she purrs loudly … she’s fine, just getting used to him.
I developed a mild cold late Sunday so had a COVID test on Monday and have been self isolating. Fortunately I can work from home and always bring my device home with me. I got the negative result late this afternoon. I’m pleased I got tested, because they need to do over 800 tests in Taranaki to be sure there’s no cases in the community. The test is unpleasant but quick; this was my second and I’ll do it again if I need to.
