Cheers fuk fam, I'm feeling pretty much back to normal now, buying stupid shit I don't need because I found a code on here etc. Pretty much everyone in my extended family is in the NHS so hit me up and I can tap them for any advice as 111 is utterly swamped and not very helpful at the moment.

@swede not entirely sure mate, did a fair bit of travelling for work to Portugal and France in the weeks leading up to to it so I guess it could have been anything really, I was pretty fastidious about washing hands and all that - so almost impossible to say, I've been reading a lot about how long the virus can last on non-organic surfaces so I guess it must have been that in an airport or WeWork or train/tube somewhere.

Appreciate the kind words Pad, Dee, LFC Burt, Hanto et al - we're all cunts but it's pretty cool how 99% of this place pulls together when shit gets real.

Haven't done one of these for a while, but a lot has happened in the past few weeks/months.

Best: Just back from a great bank holiday in the camper van in Exmoor celebrating 2nd wedding anniversary.
Best: Managed to get some body boarding in in Croyde. First time in about three years and one of the highlights of the year, even for 40 minutes!
Best: Despite mental health issues/depression in recent years, I am definitely on the up and considering coming off of medication.
Best: Bought a genuinely 'new' car for the first time.
Best: Reason for buying the car is we are expecting our first baby in March.

Worst: Having to cut back on buying clothes. Laughing out loud
Worst: Selling clothes/shoes to make space. Cry

Sorry I was wrong…. it wasn’t even as bad as the ‘flu’.

Try getting an appointment for ‘our’ NHS these days.

Oh, and keep clapping.

If there was any proof that FUK is getting old, more activity on Hanto becoming a Dad than on the actual clothing threads Laughing out loud

Congrats Hanto, wishing you and the missus all the best Cool

Congrats Hanto. Fatherhood was the making of me. Fucking exhausting at times but apart from that it's the best thing. Hoping you don't post too much heat in the Classifieds as i've way overspent already recently.

Sorry to hear about your shitty lay off Tiger. Hope you get to keep that Rolex, it's beautiful. Sell some other shit.
