If you can get your hands on joint compound and pva glue, works even better and doesnt rot or mould.so i have decided that i want to add a giant evil pumpkin creature to my haunt, so being as i am stuck at home, i thought i know make the head from paper mache ( saw a great how to, on you tube). only thing is you cant find any flour anywhere.
Ok, which of you was it?Police have said they are keen to trace a person who has been walking around a village dressed as a 17th Century plague doctor.
Residents of Hellesdon, near Norwich, have been both "terrified" and amused by the individual dressed in a black cloak, hat, and pointed beak-like mask.
Doctors treating those with the Black Death believed the mask acted as a filter against the disease.
Police said they would like to give the individual some "words of advice".
It is thought the person has been dressing this way for about two weeks for their daily walk, with a photograph posted on a village social media page attracting many different points of view.
Glad to hear that your MIL in on the mend and home where she can "properly" be taken care of. On a brighter note, Halloween is just around the corner, and it sounds like you already have your thinking cap on. 🎃MIL now out of hospital - looking frail and thin. Thankfully she is home though and we have carers in place to help with the pressure.
On the Halloween side - managed to find two large black plastic tube inners for the big carpet rolls from the carpet showroom nearby. About 15 feet long and maybe 6-8 inches in diameter. No idea what I will use them for yet but never turn down an opportunity I say. Have to say that lugging them home on foot by yourself is a good workout on a hot day like today.
That's wonderful DandyBrit. I work at a major hospital and have seen how devastating this virus can be. So happy to hear that she is home and doing well.^Cheers ScareyCarrie - there were times when we thought she wasn't coming home at all. Covid positive at 85 years old is not a good thing - however she was one of those who never manifested symptoms which was a relief.
My brother was given a wrong COVID-19 test result as well. Told he was positive, then a few hours later they called to say he was negative. It was the scariest 4 hours of his life.....ours too.Excellent news @DandyBrit - I know I'm a little late at replying but i still hope it's the case that she's doing well now (you, too ).
My family member was given the wrong test result, they were in fact negative. We followed through with the self isolation regardless. My town is currently a covid hot spot, supposedly, no suprise as social distancing is only obeserved whilst queing to enter stores.
Here's hoping the next 5 months wil vastly improve the situation.
