When is a flu not a flu?

by davebarclay1954

Here in the UK, our absent (NotMy)Prime Minister and his chief advisor (puppet master) are blindly following the dumpster into the abyss. With the latest health threat already hitting the UK (COVID19) they want to get drs and nurses out of retirement to help with the perceived epidemic. They are also denying the scientists (no surprise there as they have been doing this for years) about the death rate, how to combat the disease and how to quarantine people who are infected.

Enough on that score, I have been in Seahouses since Saturday in order for my house to be rewired, I have lots to do when I get home so my wife wants to go home today, although we have been told the electricity won’t be turned on again until tomorrow, which means no power to the boiler so no heat. No shower, no chance either of a bath and the downstairs is in a complete upheaval with plastering needed to be done on the walls where the wall lights have been removed, new sockets have been put in and this also needs to be replastered, there is also nowhere to cook as the kitchen looks like a bomb site.

How can I get through to someone who is becoming more and more anxious as every day passes that the best thing for us to do is wait until the power is restored before going home? I know we have lots to do but without power we will have to do these all manually in the cold and all our bedroom furniture is out of the bedroom in the spare room. No chance of stopping off putting everything back or we’d freeze because it is extremely cold up here at the moment (forecast says snow is possible today or tomorrow).

If anyone has any ideas on what I can do to stop her rushing headlong into the fire in order to get out of the frying pan please tell me, no matter how silly you think it is as I have been trying to get through and am now getting the silent treatment which usually means she knows I’m right but hates that I’m right.
