It’s been a relatively good year for a change.
Foundation degree going well.
Wonderful London trip with Ian in June.
Amazing Italy trip for little Bro’s wedding in August.
A new piercing and a new tattoo.
Just about keeping our heads above water.
Xmas all sorted.
The Last Jedi was the icing on the cake.
Only two more shifts until Xmas.
So what’s gone wrong?
I’m having problems with my knee again for a start.
The knee that exploded on me nearly two years ago is giving me some real problems again and I’m really scared it’s going to have a major impact on me over the next year.
Right now, I can’t afford to be off my feet.
I can’t afford to miss my placement days on Tuesdays. The catch up on missed placement hours when I’m fit enough would be a killer.
Today I took Marjorie to work only to discover a problem with my car. There’s a terrible knocking when I turn left. We think a spring may have gone.
Great! it’s going to have to wait until after Xmas. I’ll just have to use the Hubbies car.
I can use the Hubbies car because he is not going to work because he’s unwell.
He has a low immune system anyway because of all the medication he’s on and one of the protocols is that he goes to see a doctor if he has a sore throat for more than 4 days.
Turns out he has a nice case of tonsillitis!!
The Docs have given him a whacking dose of antibiotics. Phenoxymethyl Penicillin 250mg. 2 tablets every 6 hours for ten days!
The only worry now is that Ian had a small issue with his car this morning when it wouldn’t go into gear.
It’s an automatic. He turned the car off and switched it back on and ‘fingers crossed’ it was OK.
Be bloody typical if that went as well!!
SO! Today I plan to put my feet up and try and get into the festive spirit.
The only shopping I have to think about is for the fresh fruit, veg and bread etc on Saturday.
There’s no way I’m doing it during the day. It will be pandamonium. I don’t want to leave it too late though because I’m up for work at 05:30 on Sunday.
I think around 9pm is a fair bet. Unless I’m feeling brave (or stupid) enough to go during the day.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
