On the 16th day of Christmas
my chores list is done...
It's the last day of my long leave
off to work tomorrow!
Well, that was a nice long leave over Christmas, mind you I am already getting stressed thinking about work tomorrow. I know I am going back to a horrendously busy time of year.
Also, we have received our medieval re-enactment event schedule for 2009 and it is a BUSY year, starting in January with workshops, battle practices through February and March (mostly for the smelly soldiers) and then running right through until August!
With a council meeting on Wednesday, I have also started to get my membership and publicity stuff ready for that.
My depression has been terrible this Christmas with regular bouts of tears, but I discovered that candlelight is very restful and eases my mind. MB calls it 'dark'.
As for the old knee, as intended I have dumped my crutches and been tottering gently about. I managed shopping and gently walking a mile or so into town - albeit with a pronounced limp by the time I got there. The pain is still there but reduced, and increases with exercise, so whatever is damaged is still damaged and I have an orthopaedic appointment on 28 January which I am hoping will solve the problem, whatever it is.
Update: I can definitely confirm the injury is still there - since William kindly stood right on it and wouldn't get off! Ouch!
