It's been a right week! I can't drive my car right now as it doesn't have power steering, so I drive my hubby's Scenic and he takes my little Peugeot 106. she's not a very manly car, pale blue with a Nemo aerial ball and a lovely Bagpuss mouse perched on the dash! I think he'd like to trade her in for something more masculine but I don't want to let her to go as I'm hopeful I'll be able to take her back some time soon, if the mtx does it's job. Anyway, Wednesday on his way to work the exhaust fell off. Luckily he knows his way around old cars and I'm pleased to say he was able to put her back together without too much damage to the purse, or should that be wallet as he paid? I think he's become quite an accomplished mechanic over the years as we've had more than our fair share of old bangers.
Although I was grateful for his mechanical expertise I wasn't happy that the carpets haven't been getting hoovered regularly. We have two dogs but currently the carpet is resembling a third as I'm unable to use the hoover right now. Spurred on by a combination of pmt, steroids and bad temper I aired my dismay at lack of help and guilted him into pushing the Dyson around. 5 minutes in and the Dyson blew up. I told him if he didn't want to do it he only had to say! Anyway the repair man is due today thanks to the marvellous 5yr warranty. I'm hoping he comes early so I can still go swimming as it really helps my joints.
I had my second dose of mtx and was feeling pretty good on Sunday and convincing myself how the pain was so much reduced perhaps I wouldn't need to increase dose to 15mg after all? Then I remembered I had a steroid jab so that's probably what's eased things. No nausea though so a positive start. This morning I've still got painful toes and feet and my right wrist and hand are sore but it's very early days.
The diet is going really well, I've lost 2lb this week giving a new total of 50lb. I don't know how I ever allowed myself to get so fat when following a healthy diet is really not that difficult. Hubby looks great too having lost 49lbs. I think the marital bed is heaving a huge sigh of relief at the combined loss of over 7stone, that's the equivalent of a whole little person when you think about it!
Enough rambling from me this morning. I hope you are all keeping well and enjoyed a little sun over the weekend. Suppose I should do a little house work.
