Virus 🦠


Saturday 9th to Thursday 14th November

Maybe explains why I was looking pale at work. Looks like it’s time for a virus 🦠

My usual one that I get quite regularly but this time making me feel quite poorly and the rash being quite a bit more painful than I’ve had for a while πŸ˜·πŸ˜–

Looking pale


Friday 1st to Friday 8th November

November, yuck! It’s getting very close to my least favourite month of the year πŸ˜–

On the 3rd of November I had been back at work since having my transplants for 4 years. It’s still as tough some days as it was at the start!

Well done to Derbyshire Police ‘who stepped in to deliver a human organ for an immediate transplant at a Birmingham hospital after the ambulance it was being transferred in broke down’.

Happy Bonfire Night – I didn’t actually get to see any fireworks πŸŽ‡ ☹️

While I was at work on Friday, three different customers told me that I was looking pale. It has been a tough week, full of stress and worry πŸ˜–

And finally, congratulations to Lewis Capaldi on reaching the US Number 1 spot with his song Someone You Loved (it was also Number 1 here in the UK for 7 weeks).

‘Many people might not know that while the song lyrics can apply to many situations, Lewis connected the message with organ donation.’

You can hear Lewis talking about the story behind the song in this video from NME magazine. (Sorry about the swearing 🀬 ).
