Dear reader, I meant to post this pre the chrimbo holiday period, but things just got in the way and before I knew it, I had a dodgy foot, a dicky back and dead internet connection. Murder could’ve ensued but I’ve managed to not turn into an axe wielding homicidal maniac with the aid of sufficient drugs and some good books. Oh, and a husband who doth wait on me hand and foot because…well… you know…I’m worth it.
So, before we go any further and in the spirit of the season, have this (you'll need Flash because the mp4 won't work):
Remember back in October when I had that lovely walk at Point Nepean, even though I had a dodgy ligament in my foot? Well, that got worse (the ligament, not the walk) and long story short, I ended up in this:
The good doctor told me that driving any longer than an hour (sans boot) was a no-no, as was any unnecessary walking. So, a walk to the loo is fine but a wander around say, the zoo, is considered quite naughty.
Lucky I managed to get this little jaunt up to Flagstaff Hill lookout in before the boot-fest began, eh? The lookout is not far from Linton - a little country town about 2 hour’s drive west of Melbourne in an area known as the Golden Plains. I’m sure you can figure out why.
It’s not much, I know and I meant to post it ages ago but sitting at the computer just wasn’t doing it for me as much as slothing on the couch eating popcorn was.
Things have been busy enough in the garden with flowers blooming, fruit and vegetables threatening to erupt, a bird moving in and oh, flooding. Yeah, that was fun.
After spending 10 days in the boot, my back decided it wasn't happy and chucked a spaz, so I spent 5 days lying on my back eating anti-inflammatories, before gradually getting upright enough to do short walks around the house.
Then the phone line died so I couldn't read the internet cover to cover. Turns out some nufty on the construction site at the end of the road managed to cut some cables, so no internet. Fortunately I'd already got an online shop done so the Food Fairy fronted up with the goods that kept us going. First world problems, eh?
I managed to shuffle up the street a bit to get this for you. I know it's rubbish, but I'm incapacitated! Once I get over this back thing, I can have another go at being booted enough to get over the ankle thing and then maybe....there'll be no more things to get over in 2018?!
Happy New Year.
