Good morning, everyone. Yesterday turned out a lot cooler and more pleasant and overnight I felt positively chilly when I woke to find the duvet on the floor! Sitting here now, it is getting darker and darker and the rain has started. It's cool and fresh and, apart from the rain, pleasant.
Yesterday morning went very much as planned. Slimming World was great fun although a few regulars were away on holiday. To my shock, I had lost two pounds. I have no idea how, but this losing weight thing is a funny old business, never as simple as 2+2=4.
Then I drove on to Lindsey's where I loosened up the old calves and ankles on the cross trainer and the cycle before the massage. Things are definitely more comfortable as the days go by although I am still being extremely careful. The walking isn't quite right yet, there's no 'springiness', no power yet so we need to work on getting that back - carefully! The cross trainer helps so much that we discussed one of those pedal things - Lindsey calls it an 'under desk cycle' which I can use while I'm sitting. As it happens, another of her clients has one she doesn't need (she has another which she uses) so I'm hoping to but that off her. I think it will help.
Finally I drove back into town, picked up my meds and came home.
That took all morning so breakfast turned into brunch!
In the afternoon, I had intended watering the allotment when the cleaners came but I had a bit of a crash. Suddenly I felt really weary and lacking in energy which I guess is just a reaction to the last month or so. A good snooze and I was fine again. The allotment is getting a good watering now anyway!
Things are moving on in the garden. There are blueberries and cucumbers to pick, more strawberries are coming on and . . .
