I knew it! 

Aaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh!

When I have these thoughts people think I’m being paranoid. But I’ve been here less than a month and already there is an epidemic on the rise. I knew the moment I came here some crazy shit would happen and here it is. Swine flu has finally landed in UK. It was only a matter of time really. I’m just praying the wind doesn’t blow it our way.

I never told anyone this, but one of my fears about living in the UK was flesh eating bacteria. You see it in National Geographic documentaries all the time. Some poor fellow that went to play in the fields ends up being rushed to the ER with half the meat of his thighs hanging off him… then they have to amputate because it’s spreading fast. But they don’t get all of it out, so it spreads to the rest of his body and he eventually rots away; quite literally!

That, and the dreaded MRSM bug… it’s scary. The way I wash my hands everytime I come from outside is starting to borderline on the obsessive compulsive. Better safe than sorry; better OCD than dead!

Got my new Necchi sewing machine, yey! It’s wee compared to my previous Singer which is considered as ‘vintage’ over here. It’s the stuff you find in the History of Fashion section in a museum. I loved it because it was very easy to sew around corners.

Can’t wait to get into it. Lots of rearrangements to do though, as per work space. Right now the only available table/surface is in the garage… and it’s damn cold, but I have no choice. I’ll just have to discipline myself untill we get our own place.
