arrrr jim lad
Well, it’s now been over a week since I popped my calf muscle, and a few people have asked me how it’s doing, so I thought I’d better to do a quick update.
I am totally impatient, and every night I’ve expected to go to bed and wake up and it’s miraculously better – but unfortunately that hasn’t been the case. How annoying is that?
My progress has actually been pretty good, although yesterday, The Man bought a walking stick from the charity shop where he volunteers and then proceeded to laugh his head off at me as I practiced using it. To be honest, I can’t get the hang of it at all – old people are awesome!
However, today, I can actually put my foot down flat as I am walking around, and that’s the first day. When I spoke to my boss earlier, he was laughing at my description that I ‘lurch around like a pissed old bird!’ – I honestly do move a little like a zombie to be quite honest.
I have a gig to go to next week and I need to be able to stand up properly for that. Although thinking about it, I still haven’t got around to finding someone to go to the gig with me! Arghh….bugger!
I’m on call this weekend, so I wont be going anywhere much, which gives me a little longer to make sure that it heals properly. But thanks for everyone’s concern – I know I’ve been a whingey arse, and I hate that. Mwahs all round xxx
