Well this is the first post from my Linux machine and chuffed I am too. I am using Mozilla's integrated web suite called Seamonkey (where do they get these names from?) which is Firefoxs' big brother. Using an add-in called Deepest Sender it automatically logs me in so I can type away. Oh joy! Don't think you will get any more pearls of wisdom though!
Well here I am working from home, reading a very important NHS IT document (don't see those words together in a sentence normally!) It was nice not getting up a 6am this morning. I like deciding when to work and having as much coffee as one likes.
Visited the fracture clinic yesterday and was told that my foot has '70% healed' and I am able to go back to work on Monday. When I sat down and thought about this I realised I have been off for almost two months! It will be hard to get back into the commute:-(
Its great at Janines parents! Great food excellent booze but now they are playing some bizarre board game. I am hiding behind the PC:-)
Well well. back from the hospital with leg resplendently naked! Plaster removed, but not all sweetness and light. Apparently the break has healed 'about 50%'! He wants me to gently walk on it to stimulate blood flow and bone growth. He wants to check again in a fortnight. Unfortunately gentle walking doesn't include commuting so I have a further fortnight off:-) Yahh! Me being the curious soul I am (I am scientist everything is a need to know basis, ie I need to know everything) I asked what happens if it hasn't healed by then? To which he replied 'we will have to consider surgery to pin it'. Aghhhhhhhhhhh
Hopefully today is the day!! The day for what I hear you cry? The day my leg is removed from its artificial casing. Yes Yes Yes!!!
Just a quick post as I have done anything exciting this weekend:-) I have read everyones posts about Wrecked and VC Open House weekend and feel thoroughly depressed and being locked in all weekend:-) However tomorrow is the BIG day! Back to the fracture clinic and hopefully bye bye to the cast.
Well here it is Wednesday and my weekend only finished yesterday:-) I could get used to this staying at home and doing things in your own time!
Not very good at keeping up this blogging malarky. Hope I'm not letting anyone done who desperately needs to know about my exciting life/lifestyle.
