I will be spending the next couple of weeks with a "cartoon" foot propped up on the sofa.
THINGS I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO.
Having time to catch up on my reading and knitting. I have to have a total of six weeks off work.
Having time to read a few blogs in a leisurely fashion instead of just skimming.
Having time to orgainise my beads and doing something creative with them.
Last but not least, having a foot that doesn't hurt and being able to wear nice shoes. Being able to walk properly for sensible distances. Being able to last a whole day at work on my feet without having to change shoes at least once.
THINGS I AM NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO
Cabin fever. Last time (the other foot), after two weeks I was seriously fed up with watching repeats of "Poirot" on the telly. Even with a good library of DVD's and books I will be yearning for fresh air and the ability to get about without the crutches. I won't be able to drive for about 3 weeks at least.
Pain. Once the anaesthetic wears off it will hurt like hell for a while.
Not being allowed to take a shower for 2 weeks and having to wash my hair over the sink !
But it will be worth it.
