    I have just been told that there is swine flu in the next village to us.

    3 children in the primary school have got it and the school has had to close 2 days early for the Summer holidays.

    Our villages are so tiny that if you blink you have passed through them, so it won't take long for the flu to spread.

    I think I will hibernate just in case.....

    Hasnt someone on here got swine flu? :( Poor girly.
    A few of the schools here have SF too, they have closed one but are not going to close the other one. Apparently there is no point as everyone is going to get some strain of SF soon anyway, or so the TV says.

    Hey Huni...you will be ok, just follow the clean routine and it will just be like a bad cold (thats if anything happens to you!). A colleague of mine has come down with it and there are 2 schools in my town that have step up measures as some children have it there.
    They arent even closing schools down anymore!

    Yes, it seems to be gathering force and spreading wider.

    There is a girl on here got it, I do hope she is feeling better, get well soon if you happen to look in. X

    Thank you MrsV, I am very careful with washing hands etc and always use an anti-bacterial spray too if I am out, I have one that fits in my bag, in fact I sent one out to my son in New Zealand as there were quite a lot of serious cases out there at one time, it is dying down now, but I sent one to him just in case.

    NN89 had it and she weighed in as she was better. She has posted about, generally felt pretty unwell i think. I'm the school of thought that says try to avoid it but if you get it it's just like seasonal flu!

    I live in a little village called Walcott, it's half way between Gt Yarmouth and Cromer, it's right on the coast and very quiet.

    Hi Donnie

    I know your village very well ! My relatives had the red lion in Upper Sheringham and my brother run the Bell at Hunworth near leatheringset.

    Cromer was an old stomping ground for me as a young lad.

    Small world eh !!

    Had a letter from daughters school, they have a suspected case. They're not closing though. Just gave DD the run down on using a tissue and hand washing, but lets face it most of us will probably get it sometime!
