Still not recovered from my lung infection. At the end of last week the family had a diarrhoea and sickness bug and I thought I had been lucky enough to miss it, but on Monday evening it started. I was so ill that I ended up passing out on the bathroom floor!! One of the issues with living in a remote place is that doctors will not come out and when we asked for an ambulance, we we told that “there are so few ambulances in Gällivare at there is little chance that you will get one”. The recommendation was to ring for a taxi!! There is no taxi driver that would have been willing to have me in their car in the state I was in!!
So I had to lay in the bathroom for 7 hours until I eventually stopped being sick.
On a positive note, I did manage to go to a job interview at Gällivare Tourist Center last week, and on the 1st February I begin a three month trial working there.
And Teres has made me a pair on Reindeer skin slippers, which are very warm and comfortable
