Treatments and a Wet Wednesday
I have awarded myself the rest of the afternoon off. I had an appointment with the Chiro first thing. It was the first time I've needed to go since 2009, so not bad going, but my hip has been getting more and more and more painful by the day and it had got well past the stage of being walked-off, which I managed to do last week. Anyway, I've been sorted now I hope, but everything is still VERY sore. Still, the good news is my hips will see me out - they're good for another 40 years he reckons! and I no longer have one leg slightly longer than the other . . .
Then it has just been a return trip to the Dentist for more/different antibiotics. I've not had these before and am hoping I don't get any of the nastier side effects which can accompany them. I also asked them to refer me to the Hospital for the operation to remove this little bit of broken tooth root from 30 or more years ago, which has been sat there quite happily up until this week. He seemed nonplussed that I didn't immediately book myself in privately with him to remove it for . . . £500! I said, if it all calms down completely again I can always cancel my appointment, since he told me I would be waiting 6 months. That gives me plenty of time to find out if the a-b's have worked, right?
As the kitchen table still has a large Belfast sink plonked in the centre of it (waiting for my OH to have a full day at home to replace the old one with this new one), I can't do any machine sewing, so I will spend a little while with my crochet on the sofa, getting up to loosen my back every now and then.
Despite last night's terrific gales, my newly-tied-down polytunnel hasn't gone travelling. The weather has died down now, still quite windy but nothing like last night, when gales of 79 mph were recorded down on the coast at Pembrey. It has been raining quite hard on and off, but dry now as I look out of the window.
Keep safe everyone.
