On the upside, first trip outdoors yesterday but only as far as the surgery for another blood test. Psychologically damaging in that I had to be driven there in my own car, helped out my seat in the waiting room by my wife and shepherded hither and thither.
I had a short discussion with the practice nurse about my infection. One possibility was a friend who recently had gastroenteritis. Unlikely since he is of an age similar to me and would probably have been floored like me, so probably not him.
I was at a wargames show south of the border recently, hundreds of people there, I also used their toilets and ate some food in their restaurant, certainly a possibility. Unfortunately NHS England haven't published their monthly virus outbreak report yet, so still a possibility.
I also visited the local infirmary for my pre-op check. It's a very big hospital so it was crowded with people some of whom could well have been carrying my virus. Hospitals and sick people go hand in hand, don't they! (Tamsin, you might be right here)
Got an early blood test result today, yes, still infected, not sure what with for a few more days yet. Another one scheduled for a fortnight, god, is it going to take that long? I'm due my gall bladder surgery in just over two weeks.
Tried some dry low-sugar cereal this morning, it has stayed down. A small glass of shaken Lucozade, still too fizzy, mostly stayed down. A couple of soft boiled eggs for tea, boy do I feel stuffed.
I did venture out to the man-hut this evening, well Strictly was on.
I snapped the current status of this and that as it was easier to press buttons on the camera rather than wave a paintbrush at some figures.
Here's what I found:
A unit of Bison Riders based, saboted and tufted.
You can see that matching scenic effects of the bases and the sabot make a difference to the end result. The sabot version, of course, is for Warband.
These are 'new' High Elf cavalry from Pendraken.
Note the spacers in the sabot to give the impression of a number of 'squadrons' operating together.
These can come off the sabot too, obviously.
They then become a Warmaster High Elf cavalry unit.
Here's an example of WNIP (work not in progress).
Bases and sabots.
Kallistra Teutonic Knights awaiting their 'magical' transformation into Empire Knights.
The 'skellies', patient as ever.
Some High Elf archers, perhaps a little less patient.
That's all I can manage for the time being. I'm saving up my energy to cheer on Wales and Ferrari tomorrow and then the Scots and Ferrari again on Sunday.
