Hi everyone. I haven't blogged for a couple of weeks so I thought I would share my beauty salon experience.
A few days before Christmas I made a spur of the moment decision and made an appointment to have a manicure and pedicure at my usual salon.Thought it would be just the boost I needed to put me in the mood for Christmas.
,Made some lunch and husband dropped me off at the salon.I felt a little bit rushed but this soon changed as I settled to have my treatments.
Left the salon feeling so relaxed having had a hand and foot massage as well as the manicure etc.I was wearing a pair of open toed shoes as they are so easy to get on and off.I rang home from my mobile for my husband to pick me up.No answer.Thought I'd walk a little further up the road and try again.Still no answer.Tried again. Same result.
Good grief I thought what to do now.I'd left the shops behind and home was still over half a mile away across country.I decided to walk.I must have made quite a picture.A middle aged woman wrapped up warmly against the weather with bare feet and open toed shoes.
I was absolutely shattered but I made it. My husbands face was a picture when I tottered into the house."Why didn't you ring me,I thought I was coming to collect you".You can imagine how this conversation went I'm sure. He was looking a little embarrassed to say the least.He had been in the study with headphones on listening to his favourite music.He just hadn't heard the phone ringing.
I have noticed he is going a little deaf but he isn't ready to admit it yet.
My Christmas spirit was at a low ebb but when I reflected on it later I was proud that I'd managed to walk that far.It just proves that you have to be resilient to have RA.
A Happy and painfree New Year to all xxx
