Who wants to join me in quarantine? (Lighthearted)

Such is the sheer amount of fuckwittery around at the moment, I find myself envious of people being quarantined.

Crisp sheets, peace and quiet, possible internet detox. What's not to like? (Assuming you don't get ill of course).

Anyone joining me?

(Or am I getting quarantine mixed up with a spa break?)

I'd love to be quarantined in a spa. I'm in!

TinselAngel Fri 07-Feb-20 17:44:16

Maybe eventually the spas will have to be commandeered?

Will there be lots of tea and hot buttered toast?
If so I'm in.

I'm trundling in with a stack of books and some proper tea.

Proper butter, to keep our strength up.

Think I would also need a total communications black out, and a warm blanket. Please

I would love a spa---

It I would settle for a bed that I have to myself, time to read my Kindle, lovely silence & bacon rolls

No silly people allowed!

White bread only.

I also want emotional support puppies to be available.

Your wish is my command Tinsel

And kittens

TinselAngel Fri 07-Feb-20 19:28:46

Those puppies!

The Doctors, I thinking, will all look like Richard Chamberlain.

I've cancelled Facebook and Twitter and filtered topics on MN and its fucking beautiful.

Somethings we can change and some thing we can't, we can only manage how we deal with it. Understanding that has done wonders for my mental health.

However if theres a spa you can book me in for a head massage and a foot rub

MrsDoylesTeaBags Fri 07-Feb-20 19:52:06

Oh a tea and buttered toast would be lovely thanks

Budge up for one more. It's those puppies that made my mind up. I'm also actually sick and do need quarantining.

FannyCann Fri 07-Feb-20 20:50:01

Can I put a vote in for crumpets? Lashings of heartstopping butter. A bit of runny honey sometimes. A local heather one ideally. Definitely not a Chinese or "EU and non EU" combined one.
I'd like it to be in one of those old TB hospitals with balconies, fresh air and extensive grounds full of rhododendrons.

FannyCann Fri 07-Feb-20 20:54:26

Those women look pretty cheerful. I bet it was the best holiday of their lives.

midgebabe Fri 07-Feb-20 20:59:03

Wise words teabags, but I am struggling to accept my limitations

MrsSnippyPants Fri 07-Feb-20 20:59:13

I was in quarantine for 48 hours last week actually, it was quite pleasant, I could quite fancy a full week of it.

Those puppies are now almost 7 years old and are snoring next to me!

Can I be quarantined too? I have wine, chocolate an audio book subscription and a large new ball of ombré wool.

I’ll bring hand gel to ward off any germs.

MrsSnippyPants Fri 07-Feb-20 22:02:19

Yarn! Good call Al1Lang

BlackeyedSusan Fri 07-Feb-20 22:27:11

If there is no washing up, I'm in.

Packs yarn and hook.

ScrimshawTheSecond Fri 07-Feb-20 22:45:57

Ooh, is it a home for Consumptive Ladies? May I bring my sourdough starter, a slightly peculiar cat and a bag of oranges? I can do hot toddies to ward off - well, most things.
