This has been another mad day. Mad days on one leg are not ideal. It is possible to make up a super king-size bed for visiting guests with one leg… but you have to sort of crawl all over the bed and knee your way around it to tuck the sheets in… so it rather looks like it has been slept in…. before it has been slept in. But hey… it will be housing 2 students (B and E), so I guess the ‘unmade bed’ feel will mean they might feel right at home..?
Also, today, I got the boot….the Darth Vader S&M (tight straps) brace/boot (see pic)… which progresses from part weight bearing (PWB) to full weight bearing (FWB) over the next month or so. I’ve never been so pleased to see my own leg. Yes, it is skinnier than before (i.e really skinny) and the horrible scar is still there… but hey, I am (gently) using 2 legs – and this feels like progress at last!
Aside from having guests to stay, and seeing the consultant, I played host to a high-level lunch-time Bored Meeting. The members came from as far as Hertfordshire and high finance was discussed and important decisions taken. Seeing my plight, before she left, one long-sighted member kindly washed ALL the lunch dishes for me… with the (clearly labelled) ‘cat-only’ washing-up sponge. So it’s good that the dishwasher is still functioning perfectly….
