Achilles Blog 2 – 9.5.14. Impressive crutching

This is turning into a blog!!

I went into town today – to the British Museum (BM). Quite exhausting… a normal 10 minute walk to the station takes about 25-30 mins on crutches. One cannot be rushing anywhere… consequently, people seem to want to talk to you… and you have time to stop and talk to them…

today I spoke to an American visitor to the museum who was wearing a lovely lilac waterproof jacket; a bunch of guys who were going to be staging a ‘Viking sword fight’ at the BM, and a guy who was tidying his work van up cos his boss was using it tomorrow.

I wear a backpack and a bum bag.. and I also took a folding stool to the museum (to rest my leg on). On the way back home, I went shopping in M&S. Wish I could have done a selfie, cos I reckon I looked like either a pedlar or a homeless Big Issue seller, cos the stool and a small M&S bag were suspended from the back of the rucksack…
I get admiring looks from people cos they’re quite impressed with my efforts!! So am I!

About aintwegotitmade

Who am I?.......well, I'm getting to that age where I have to think about that before I answer... My name is J, I'm married to Jay and we live in the great city of London. I started this blog as an update to family and friends when I completely ruptured my Achilles tendon a few years ago (see The first post). I am so fortunate in every possible way...and in all honesty, I'm just using this blog to remind myself... Why is it called Ain't we got it made?: this is a line from one of my favourite songs (Sing Baby Sing - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtTgtkDLNys). Have I got it made? Well - I've got a roof over my head, running water right into my house, a fully-stocked supermarket round the corner, free and readily available healthcare; and I live with my lovely husband in a great city, in a beautiful country, where I feel safe and secure.... I rest my case. Fact or opinion: I am not an expert on anything… but I can confirm that everything in this blog is either fact or opinion. I hope to post regularly, mostly about things I find uplifting, positive, amusing, optimistic, important..or perhaps just about regular daily life...but I won't bother you too much. Thanks for stopping by... jx
