CHICKEN POX

blues BY ANDREW SOUTHWOOD

I

t was around 3 weeks ago that Chicken Pox started doing the rounds at school. So, it was with some relief that my daughter finally came out in spots last week. It’s good to ‘get it out of the way’, so they say. For a few minutes she was so pleased, almost proud, to show us her spots and have us confirm the diagnosis. When we pointed out this would mean she would miss her friends birthday party she had been so looking forward to, she was slightly less happy. Poor girl. For us, as parents, it was the logistics of it that caused us the initial headache. No school for the week and childcare predicaments to resolve. It was pretty selfish of her not to combine this with halfterm, when one of us would be about all week anyway, to be honest.

68 | NOVEMBER 2019

Luckily her siblings had already done ‘the Pox’. One was a tiny baby and one when they were about 3… no idea which one? It’s all a big sleep deprived blur in the foggy part of my memory banks to be honest. The novelty rapidly wore off. As the first day or two passed the spots worsened. Appearing in some very uncomfortable places. The ones by her eye and in her ear were particularly annoying, but, with the help of some regular doses of Piriton, she bravely ploughed through. There is a theory oats help to relieve the itching, so it was with great amusement she bathed with some homemade oat bombs - old socks stuffed with porridge oats. If nothing else it distracted her for a bit. By the middle of the week the discomfort receded and it became more of a case of

boredom. I have always been keen to get out of the house with the kids. Just a trip to the park or a walk around Home Bargains, anything to get out for an hour. However, she was still in quarantine, so these were not options. We played a few games, did some Lego, lots of reading and even resorted to jigsaws (which she loves - but I find utterly pointless). It was exhausting, for me (and my wife) at least. It has only been a couple of years since we spent that long alone with her every day. The demands of a 5 year old are perhaps more energy zapping than that of a 3 year old? Or maybe we are just no longer used to it? The one to one time was of course special, but boy will we be pleased for a return to normality. But wait - it’s halfterm now isn’t it?!

A Local Ecumenical Partnership between the Church Of England, United Reformed Church and Baptists Together

WE ARE YOUR LOCAL CHURCH BASED IN SOUTHGATE COMMUNITY CENTRE 2019 is the 75th anniversary of the D Day landings, the largest amphibious operation in history. It is often rightly remembered as a great victory for the British, American and Canadian Troops who fought so bravely on the Normandy beaches. The Royal British Legion this year is reminding us also to recognise the contribution of troops from the 10 other nations who were directly involved in the fighting as well as that of 350,000 members of the French Resistance together with the Special Operation Executive. Additionally, working behind the scenes, often unacknowledged, were the nurses, code-breakers, meteorologists, inventors and many, many more who helped make D-Day a success. You’ve probably never heard of Lise de Boucherville Baissac. She worked for the Special Operations Executive in occupied France and as soon as she heard radio announcements alerting her to the D-Day landings, Lise knew what she had to do. She cycled for three days, often sleeping in ditches and travelling

through areas full of Nazi soldiers, to tell her colleagues in the French Resistance that the Allied troops were on their way. She also travelled around the country, taking weapons and equipment to other members of the resistance, and damaging railways and phone lines so that the Nazis couldn’t use them. Lise is just one of many unsung heroes who worked together to ensure victory. Altogether 46 Allied nations fought together in WW2 to defeat the Nazis. Winston Churchill said “If we are together nothing is impossible. If we are divided all will fail.” This seems to be a relevant message for us today, when we are aware of so many political and social divisions in our nation and the wider world.

Bury St Edmunds Cricket Cub are thrilled that Daniel Moriarty has secured a two year contract with Surrey, credit goes to Paul Whittaker and Sean Park who took the decision to bring Daniel and Justin Broad over from South Africa, as Dan has a UK passport the transition is easier as he qualifies for England. Speaking after agreeing his first professional contract, Moriarty said: “I’m very proud and honoured to have been offered a contract with one of the most prestigious counties in the game. “I really enjoyed my time with the 2nd XI earlier this year and I’m now looking forward to getting stuck in at The Kia Oval and pushing for a place in the first team throughout the next two seasons.”

Broad was the 2nd highest run scorer with an excellent 936 runs scored in total at over 55 per innings. Dan will be playing cricket in the Surrey Premier League next season so he will be a loss but from the clubs point of view it is terrific for him to become a professional cricketer with one of the best county’s and sends out the signal that playing for Bury St Edmunds can take you to the highest level. Bury’s season closed with a Presentation Evening when 22 players were rewarded with trophies for scoring over 100 or taking 5 wickets in an innings.
