Clockin' On....

Long time no blog.......so what have I been up to?

Work - well, d'uh! I've been teaching (and learning) and doing the day to day grind. My teaching is still popular and going from strength to strength.

My two year anniversary of stopping smoking has passed and, even with the odd brief temptation, I have not broken my vow.

Struggling with my usual autumn depression.....same old, same old...

I had a bout of the flu, there's a nasty bug going around at the moment. Cyberkitten got it too - not from me, I hasten to add! I blame public transport - all those unhealthy people coughing and sneezing on the bus! Ended up in bed with a temperature and a cough that would shatter glass.

And for the last week and a half I have had a new fashion accessory.....
I hurt my knee at Pembroke (see here) and it was still not healing properly two months later so I went to the doctor and asked for some advice. His advice was exercise and we agreed some nice low impact cardio-vascular swimming would be a good start.
A week later I was back in his surgery with my knee twice the size and four times the pain and the doc admitted maybe exercise was not the best option......
X-rays have shown nothing but there is still pain and swelling so it's off to the hospital for a scan this week - and I have powerful pain-killers and crutches to take the strain off the damaged knee.

Good to have you back again! I'm sorry about your knee...so that we can compare miseries, my latest thing is suddenly-fallen arches (actually arch, singular) on my right foot. Hurts like crazy and doesn't do much for my dancing. Sigh...getting old is a pain, but at least it beats the alternative.

Good to have you back hon, but yikes! You're definitely accident prone lol.

Hope you start to heal soon. Jeffers's ankle only just healed fully after he had his accident back in September.

I have a cough that could shatter glass !

But I've been doing that so long that no-one gives any sympathy any more.
