Well, I have this morning been officially discharged from the fracture clinic at Stepping Hill and been handed over to the physio department. I’ve lots of exercises to do and hope now to be gradually increasing the distance I’m walking each day. Hubby Geoff is finally due back from his 4 week jaunt to Morocco on Monday (he was due back last Thursday but the Santander/Plymouth ferry was cancelled due to bad weather, so he’s currently enjoying himself in a nice hotel near Bilbao waiting for the next ferry on Saturday), and part of his brief when he gets back will be to take me out walking – never mind the dogs! Although I can wander around quite happily on the flat, I do need a hand to hold still on slopes and uneven ground.
So, I guess it’s now pretty much up to me to work hard and get myself out there again asap!
And I’ve also come up with a new chat-up line for anyone who might be in need of one:
‘Hi there, do you want to feel my callus?’
