On the Up


I needed a photo that said “there is light at the end of the tunnel, let’s get moving its nearly Christmas and there is sausage, mash and gravy for tea”.   One of Nancy Nightingale’s funky dunky dahlias fitted the description perfectly.

It has been a good day.   There were a few firsts after my disastrous stuntwoman interview a couple of weeks ago.  It was my first full day without the stormtrooper boot.  It was my first day with two shoes on and my first visit to the physiotherapist.  All went well.  Very well.

I don’t want to disco dance before I can walk but things are definitely on an upward trajectory.

Even better, when we got home from the hospital Father Christmas had visited.  OH didn’t mind shimmying up the scaffolding to retrieving the parcel.  I’m not that much better yet!

  1. Good, indeed great, on all counts. I don’t think any of the drivers here could chuck a parcel that high though. Did OH check whether he could fit through the pot while he was up there? If he can’t then Santa, being somewhat excessively rotund, won’t and you may need to take advantage of the scaffolding to install a larger pot.

  2. I’m amazed that you’re already getting around without the boot – it seems no time at all since you first posted about your fall: but not to you, most probably. You must have tremendous healing powers. I’m glad to hear it’s all going well. It’s grey here too, and rainy, but we’re happy!


    1. It is quick! I do tend to heal quickly, the physio was quite amazed when he saw the photos. I think that gardening must have built up my strength around my feet and ankles, lots of hills and uneven surfaces. A way to go yet, but I am very pleased so far. Glad to hear you have rain and of course that you are happy. 🙂

  3. That’s a fast recovery! Hope it continues to improve. I really need to get my foot sorted out!
    And a nice flash of yellow – haven’t see too much of that lately.


    1. Yes, I am very pleased, I mustn’t get too confident though as I’m sure it is easy to slip back down the slope. As for the dahlia, what a crazy brute, love it! And yes, you must do something about your foot, make it a New Year’s Resolution. 🙂
