Cat Print Tunic: New Look
Slipper socks: Gift
So, like the rest of the UK we woke up to a coating of the white stuff yesterday; actually, when I woke up at 5am we had none but by 7 we had quite a thick layer and the chaos started.
I'm proud to say I refused the chance of a whole day off work and made it in for the morning thanks for my dedicated Mum who braved her hatred of driving in such conditions. It was a most odd morning- none of the GPs were able to get to our surgery so we had to send patients to our other site, we had a nurse, a HCA and five reception staff...power to the admin people?
I was allowed to leave at lunch time as I really wasn't needed and we weren't sure how easy it'd be to get me home by the evening (snow and crutches anyone?) so I indulged in a lazy afternoon slouching around in the kind of clothes I usually reserve for sick days and enjoying it greatly. As soon as I saw this cat print tunic I needed it, it's not really my style but it has cats on and is warm which was good enough reason for me to purchase...I am easily swayed.
I spent a lot of the afternoon watching Mae sound her disgust at the snow coated garden, she went outside a couple of times but mostly stayed near windows growling and looking put out, she'd never seen snow before (I don't think) and certainly hadn't been outside in it and I think she was a bit confused; not hard to confuse this cat.
I think I finally have some good news on the foot front too, after an appointment last week left me with a probable diagnosis of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome my wonderful GP is starting me on some specific pain medication that should make it a lot more comfortable to walk and I am hoping that now we're sure there is no serious injury I can ditch the crutches, the only thing keeping me on them is the pain on weight bearing so if that's not there and I can re-educate my foot on correct posture this could be the turning point. I knew 2013 was going to be a positive year!
Well, happy weekend, got plans to play in the snow? I'm hoping it hasn't turned in to an ice rink outside so I can get some fresh air safely at some point!
