It's a Ceangal! A tangle, a mish mash, a mess!
We have been through a lot. We have been incredibly patient while the world and his mother insisted on telling us what to do, and increasingly, what not to do. But, no matter what way we look at it, we are in a much more precarious position now than we were in, this time last year. There is no point in blaming anyone because this virus appeared out of nowhere, No one is owning it, No-one recognises it and more importantly, no=one seems to know what to do with it.
Will we always have to take a vaccine? How often? Who is making it? How are they making it?

The reality is that , of the number of people who test positive for Covid19, ., only a small percentage go to hospital. I wanted to be one of the people who stay at home.
What food should I keep in my freezer? On TV when they show Covid patients, they are never eating.
Do they ever eat? What could they eat? Are the nurses too exhausted to bring them food? Or a cup of tea?
So, I laid in my supplies. Cough mixture, aspirin, Vicks, soothing throat lozengers, In the freezer vegetables, slices of bread, chicken breasts, In the store cupboard, tins of salmon, Bovril, stock cubes. .
Then the best bit of all. On the HSE site, there is no information whatsoever, No recommendations.
