    A `Being Sick` supply.

    Definitely keep up your hydration. A fair few of the covid patients at work have come in quite dehydrated with borderline kidney failure because they haven’t kept up their fluids over a long period of time of 5-7 days so staying hydrated (but not over hydrated) is a good idea.

    Planning Permission Advice needed.

    Whose land is it built on? The museum? What was the terms of the original permission? Your might not need planning permission retrospectively but rather ‘lawful consent’ (I think). If it’s the museums land push back on them to make them do it?
