Achilles Blog 33 – 12.7.14. Leaving Lefkada

Lovely Andrea (40-something yoga instructor/masseuse/recently split from yacht-owning partner) has taken away my limp. Now I suspect this is temporary until I tense up again… unless I find a way of not tensing up… I guess that means more massage and yoga when I get home…it’s a tough life…

The house (Villa Nick-Elly) has a massive loft room (see pic) with only velux windows so you can’t see any of the views properly…. but this means it’s a calm cosy space and, as at home, I’ve been doing exercises up there too. No scales…but I know I have put on weight…. must be Jay’s cooking (Greek salad).

Home soon. Me and the sun don’t actually get on very well at all… but what I love is the light, and the feeling of space missing from London…. we will miss this house, the view and splendid owner George. Comparing the ferry journey to the mainland 2 weeks ago to the one we just took back to Corfu airport, I can see a real improvement in my leg. There is still a twinge, but I do not have to go up and down the ferryboat stairs one at a time; I do not have to hold on to the banister all the time. I believe my leg is going places… and I promise to support it and go with it. See what happens … because I said I would….

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, and my husband and I 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
