18 November 2011 – treadmill experiment


Commando is out for a run and he’s going to football with CJ and Bard this afternoon. Last night was the Mad House Excellence Awards. I didn’t go obviously but I did get a text from my friend Panda to tell me my team won team of the year. Well done us. I hope they all had a couple of drinks for me. What am I saying. I know they did. Continue reading

16 November 2011 – physio


The physio went well yesterday although it cost me £30 in taxi fares as it’s quite a long way from home. I’ve got some more exercises to do and she says I’ve got to try to keep moving gently. The yoga is good. She can see and feel the muscles on the right of my neck and my right shoulder are very tight which is my body trying to protect the injury. It’s a fine line between exercise and relaxation an not doing too much too soon. Continue reading

25 October 2011 – l need a new job


I went to bed at 10 last night and took one of the Diazepam (I’m supposed to take them 3 times a day but it was my first because the pain killers with codeine made me pretty groggy during the day). I slept like a baby until 5.30. Woke up, went to the loo and thought I was healed because I felt no pain at all. Within 10 mins the pain was back so decided to take pain killers instead of another diazepam. I have to phone the absence line every morning and figured if I took another diazepam I wouldn’t be asleep until midday and would be in trouble for not phoning in. I think I will keep them for night time.

Feeling a bit tired and sore today. I didn’t sleep very well as I couldn’t get comfortable as Commando will testify because I kept him awake with my tossing and turning. My shoulder and neck feel like I’ve been doing a very tough workout and taken it a step too far but nothing too bad. Think I will go to see my GP on Monday just to get checked out. Continue reading

22 October 2011 – car crash

Brewed in Percolator

We were going to town this morning as I have holes in my long socks and needed to get some more to wear with my boots. We were on the bridge, just pulled up in traffic when the car behind went straight into the back of us. The back bumper on the car is pretty badly smashed and my neck and shoulder are aching. Luckily Commando is fine because he saw her in his mirror, she was changing a CD and he knew she wasn’t going to stop, and braced himself. I think I’ll be ok but it’s annoying because I can’t do any exercise. Hopefully I will be feeling better in the morning. Continue reading

20 October 2011 – back to hats and boots


What a difference a few days makes. It was so cold and frosty I got the furry hat out yesterday and think I will need it today too. Also my sketchers boots arrived and I wore them yesterday. All furry lined and SO comfy. Not sure the tone up thing actually does anything but nice to have warm cozy and comfortable feet when I walk so much. Continue reading
