I'm having a very quiet day at home today and I'm pleased about that. I've done my chores and am a little down because my shoulder is giving me a lot of trouble today. Whenever I do something a little repetitive it hurts so much. I had to put the MacBook down, take some painkillers and lie down :( Not good. I've been using the Emu Oil a bit again of late, for my shoulder and my achilles, hoping for it to work and help.
I've enjoyed not having doctor appointments in the last two weeks, well that's not completely true - yesterday I went and had my spots checked at Solarderm, and again got the all clear which is always encouraging. I'm sure my sun worshipping days of old, will come and bite me in the bum one day. I'm just thankful for my olive skin, I'm sure that's saved me.
I've got letters to go and see an exercise physiologist and I have some free visits to go back to the physio. And I've done neither. On the exercise front, with a sore shoulder and painful calves, there's naught I can do at home, and I just don't have the money or inclination to attend a gym. I know it would be good for me and if I really wanted to go, I'd go. The money is a slight issue, but I could put it on the fantastic plastic and then pay it off when my Tax comes back. I want to walk and then jog again on my treadmill. I want the pain in my calves to get better. This is now the longest I've ever had it. I've even started wearing shoes again inside, as getting around flat footed in slippers is actually making the pain far worse.
Other than my onging pain issues, I'm feeling really good. I am good within me, and while the pain is frustrating and it does hurt, I'm coping okay with it.
Thank goodness for blogo, I can write my blog, and forget about it. That was started four days ago
It's now Sunday and I will finish the post. My shoulder is still not good, although my calves feel a bit better. Wearing shoes with my orthotics inside is definitely helping. Would be good if I headed down to the treadmill this week.
I changed health funds during the week. Bunny and I have had the same cover for 19 years, two single basic ancillary covers. I well and truly get my money back each year, between physio visits and my glasses. I wanted a better extras cover though, as I want new orthotics. Mine are ten years old and they really updating. Peter needs his checked too. It wouldn't surprise me if the kids will need them too one day. Their shoes always wear unevenly which isn't a good sign. The kids don't go to after school care anymore, so I invested the extra money into health insurance that I'd be saving from the after school care. I don't need it anymore, not working away from home.
Dinner last night. I cook something good every Saturday and they don't often enough end up on my recipe blog. These lamb cutlets are encrusted with a potato rosti mixture and then served atop rosti. The sauce is a green peppercorn and horseradish cream. Deliciously divine!
The boys are at golf today. Billy-Joe and Mickey are playing in the Junior Open Competition and Sammy and Bunny are caddying. I'll go out later for the presentation.
