Did you get tested for COVU-19?

How did the bog roll situation go? Did you ever get to the stage of rationing and/or recycling?

Didn't get tested but if you get it , it seems quite obvious. Never had anything other than a cold since 2012, any other virus has you feeling like shit , but this one for me was all the symptoms - dry persistent cough, fever feeling hot all over, tight chest where I couldbnt take a deep breath - but never felt unwell. 2 of my 3 colleagues doing the same job in different locations all had the same - but one common thing we had that they don't mention is one instance of coughing up blood - fortunately only occurred once - nearly shit myself. As I said elsewhere my daughter got it (not seen her since xmas) she's 31 and it was a close call with her nearly having an ambulance called when she had breathing difficulties - fortunately subsided - shes recovered now but still feeling washed out.

I was down to one bog roll before I could get out - special mention to Co-op own brand soft tissued - superb . I had enough food to last but its a strange feeling picking what to eat cos once its gone its gone. Appetite was a bit down so I was only snacking and I eat like a horse normally,

The whole experience showed me how lucky I was and how serious it is and how it can easily destroy people if their body can't fight it.

Decided to make a nice dinner the night for me and the misses, (I know I'm a chef, and I should make her a nice dinner all the time, but I am usually working, and on my days off, the last thing I want to do, is fecking cook).

So given the fact that I ain't working just now, I thought I would put in a wee bit of effort, and make her a nice meal, put a wee smile on her face, and you never know, maybe a wee bit of romance later.

So anyway, I spend 4 hours in the kitchen making a wee 3 courser for the pair of us,

For starters

Pan fried Scallops (Saw them in Aldi, and thought feck it, the wet suit and saw table can wait) on a bed of wilted spinach, with Parmesan,  lardon's, and croutons.

Main

Steak Pie, turned veg and Mash Tatties

Dessert

Cranachan with shortbread fingers

Afters

Cup a coffee for her, and 4 can for me.

Result

Complete waste of fecking time, she's currently on the couch, half pished after her 2nd bottles of vino colapsso, and is currently putting a pretty big dent into her 3rd, watching some sh^te on the telly, about lard ersed yanks buying wedding dresses, and I'm on a fecking message board.

So who ever said romance was dead, was fecking right.

I think the breathing thing is the difficult side of it. People tend to panic and fight for breath when you really need to relax and battle your natural instincts. 

Good to hear you've come through it bud 👍

Using my life experience... how did wake up time go for you this morning?

I can't be that bad of a chef, I've managed to survive 27 years in the business, got trained by John Weatherburn (Manager of the Scottish culinary team), Willie Deans (Scottish chef of the year 3 year on the bounce if I remember correctly) and John Mullen (Former sugarcraft world champion).

I have worked with Nick Nairn (I was part of his team that got a star), John Webber (The guy that taught Gary Rhodes), and the late and very great Andy Fairlie (I can cook, but Andy was a fecking genius, far better in my opinion than Ramsay, and a hell of a better human being). I then spent 12 years as Scottish area chef for one of Britain's largest pub/restaurant chains, before stress, depression and a change of management, forced me out of that job.

Since then I have worked for my mate, just as a chef, nothing fancy, just straight forward cooking, and I love it.

I can go into work, do my job, have a laugh, sometimes even have a wee cheeky beer or 10, and go home at night, no working away for month's on end, no hassel worrying about stars, stocks or what some wee smarmy food critic has to say about the quality of a goga berry flavored panna cotta (It tasted sh^te, but It wasn't my recipe, so I really didn't give a feck).

As for taking 4 hours to make the meal, if had a kitchen the size of that wee lispy cockney fud nugget, I could have done it in 2, but when your kitchen is the size of a fecking shoebox, and you can only do 1 job at a time, 4 hours is no bad, when you consider I had to make everything from scratch, (pastry, shortbread, cook the stew, ect).

As for the lack of romance, ask your maw, she said I gave her the best 30 seconds of her life (30 sec includes cuddles, and a fag).
