Achilles Blog 34 – 15.7.14. What’s your metier?

Holiday and football party over….work beckons. But not before having a day-long Earthing and Foot Conference on Sunday with gorgeous niece B and her lovely friend Yemi (see pic). Before bed last night I noticed a twinge to my RIGHT ankle…. not good… is my right achilles now complaining? I have a full week of work… and my right foot is saying take it easy. Taxis may be the only solution.

Borrowed a book from Jay whilst in Greece called ‘How to find the work you love’ (Laurence Boldt)….will it say an awful lot of obvious stuff but not actually provide any solutions? Right now, I think lots of young people are looking for their metier (the job they were made for)…. and lots of older people are thinking ‘what now?’ … so since I have the time, I’m going to have a read and summarise if I think it says anything useful. In the meantime I think my legs are complaining about the shallow depth of the stair tread at home… weight-bearing on toes/balls of the feet means the calves are perhaps being made to work/take weight too soon… so I shall be hanging on to the banister for the time being.

It feels like I’ve had a pretty good summer all ready and that there’s still lots more to come…. we have come back to a lovely sunny England and several refurbishment projects are in the offing… where I get to deal….with builders. Yay!! It WILL be good (please…). And if it isn’t – I’ll just organise more foot conferences.

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
