5 weeks post op

Bored Bored Bored Bored Bored Bored

My days are in a routine now. Get up in the morning and see the kids off to school then go back to bed until 9:30. Between 8:30 and 9:30 I watch the Frasier double bill and the romance between Niles and Daphne unfold. Before the accident I never watched telly, never had time. Now I watch all kinds of rubbish – Homes Under the Hammer, which led to an afternoon on “RightMove’ trying to decide whether I could set up as a property developer. Judge Rinder – leading to a google frenzy on personal injury claims. You get the picture.

Following my telly fest I get up and washed and dressed – still haven’t worn anything except jeans since the accident as it is all I can easily get on with one hand. Can wear vest tops now but still only wearing zip up / button up tops. Tried to put on a jumper the other day but the pain was too much.

Two lots of painkillers last night. The pain is more tolerable but still constant. I am looking forward to going back to the hospital next week as I always think they will say ‘You’re cured – you can have your life back’.

I get one or two invites a week and they really get me through the week. I went to the local town with a friend for a coffee, to watch some friends have a riding lesson, even a trip out to Lidl is a treat!

I am in the habit of making the kids beds every day and I have discovered that the toys get up to all sorts while they are at school…and on a good day  they ask me to join in!
