I tested positive with COVID. For me the symptoms were body aches, tiredness, a cough, and complete loss of taste and smell. It's a really weird feeling to loose taste, textures in food became super important. Coffee was especially weird, as you cant taste the coffee but just bitterness.
I count myself very lucky and was all cleared for xmas. Unfortunately the cases skyrocketed in Jersey over this period and a really close friend lost a family member to it.
I took a week off over Christmas, and although not everything at work was complete I allowed myself to relax a little bit. We went on lots of nice walks, played chess (I got an epic chess set as a present), and lots of card games together. I uploaded a photo album here of this period.
