Well here I am, one month in and definitely getting better. My broken toe has stopped hurting and I have regained some slight movement in my broken ankle. I'm still completely dependent on my crutches and signed off work but I do feel that things are healing.
What I have learned recently whilst ensconced on the old IC:
It's not a good idea to overbalanced and put all your weight on a broken ankle whilst attempting to feed a hungry cat. OUCHY!!
Do not assume that a quick trip to John Lewis with hubby will be anything other than exhausting when hauling yourself around on crutches.
It's very very easy to put on weight when confined to a chair most of the time, so step (hobble) away from the chocolate.
Ironing whilst sitting down is surprisingly annoying. Actually, I don't know why I'm surprised because ironing is annoying full stop!
My spirit is broken, I watched Homes Under The Hammer 3 times last week.
Keep posting lovely forum friends, you really are keeping me sane - although I'm getting seriously jealous of all the lovely new shoes that have been appearing recently. xxxx
