This sounds worse than the bird flu that thankfully never really happened.

Sky news have a press conference on now about possible cases in new york. When do we start panic buying wink.

Sorry to hear your dd has been so ill. Hope she's a lot better by now.

Ugh that you had to take her into that mix of bugs! Its fab that her lungs are clear though. Fingers crossed for you that she gets better quickly.

how's your DD riven?

I hope you both had a "good" night.

Certainly puts things into perspective doesn't it?

Thinking of you riven.

Riven - hope your dd (and you) have an OK night.

Riven - thinking of you, sounds like you have a tough night ahead. xxx

Apart from the Tesco lorry bit I haven't said anything that hasn't been reported in our local paper. I'd imagine if its in the local rag then other papers are also running similar stories.

Riven, hope she's ok.
Have you called again to chase them up?

p.s. sod the Ocado and M&S van, please can I have the one for Fortnum and Mason's food hall??

Slackrunner - pmsl. I want M & S myself. Was wondering if the nhs were getting mass clubcard points or something.

Seriously though, I know you must be shocked by what you heard Stripey, but really that is worst worst case scenario and sounds 'sensible' in that case (in a very cold hearted way - don't get me wrong I wouldnt think that was fair). Putting it on an internet forum where people who are scared in the first place may read it, and when others have been working so hard to reassure and calm people down, will frighten people needlessly.

Riven - my heart goes out to you it really does. It must be scary for you but we all think you are so strong - and you put the end of the world meeja people to shame.

Tesco lorries shock? How do you get an upgrade to an Ocado lorry?

Sorry Riven, I wasn't trivialising your concerns. Your worries regarding your dd catching the virus are, of course, completely valid. It's all the normally healthy people stockpiling food and voicing tales of doom that I think need to get a little perspective.

I am glad you said that, I did not want to look too scared but disaster movies etc freak me out and leave me scared for weeks! Really, I avoid them! The post by Stripey was seriously freaking me out, until the but about Tesco refrigeration lorries, that just sounded silly.

I am being quite rational about this though, I hope, in thinking that ffs, it is like normal flu in symptoms, is ok really...?
