Noooo! Not that.
Daughter bought one of these yesterday:
Just had a whale of a time letting off steam. Family amused at the sight of their old mum in boxing gloves giving it some welly.
Will be doing this a lot methinks. Can well understand how can keep you fit. Only attacked it for a few minutes and I was done. Will get easier I suppose. If I had two good legs I’d have a go at kick boxing as well!
Everything seemed to be going fine. New home, new job..albeit temporary, not smoking, health on the upturn..comparatively.
I do have arthritis though, knees, elbows and wrists. Hips fine at the moment. The knees suffer worst for the obvious reason they have to carry my weight. I was getting pain, but took pain killers which helped to some degree.
Now though, it seems the problem with my right knee is affecting my calf. The first time I got agonising pain I thought it was a severe cramp, but it wouldn’t go. I was on the way home and I actually had to sit down on the pavement and wait for my daughter to pick me up as I couldn’t walk. I must have looked a right plonker sat there.
I originally thought I had pulled a muscle, but it has happened a few times now, so I eventually went to A & E. It seems the problem is my compensating for the damage to my knee and walking in a different way, although I hadn’t realised.
I now need a to have a scan to sort out exactly what is happening. Don’t know what will happen from there.
I actually swallowed my pride and used a walking stick when I went out yesterday and I must say it helped a lot. Thankfully at work I don’t have to do much walking, so that’s a good thing. Will just have to wait and see now. Heaven knows how long I will have to wait for the scan.
Anyone else having problems trying to “like” posts at the moment, or is it just me? Also Zemanta doesn’t want to load.
The Daily Mail journalists think everything is “Hilarious”. It seems to be their favourite word.

Tan fans share photos revealing their hilarious burn marks”. Who in their right mind would think burning their skin is hilarious? Will they still be laughing if they find out they have skin cancer? “Tan Fans”? They all look like overcooked bodies to me. Difficult to believe that some morons think it’s good to smother their bodies in cooking oil because they think they will get a quicker tan. Basically all the are doing is frying themselves. A few days of hot weather turns some people into complete idiots.
I really must get back in the habit of posting regularly. What with moving recently, I have been a little busy and tired. I just kept putting off the blog posts.
We are loving being here in Hapton. Lots of green spaces, and a great amount of history to be researched. the house we have moved into is spacious, light and airy, and the dogs love having a back yard to play in, which they obviously didn’t have at the flat.
Still working at the temporary job I started at the beginning of May. Lots of work in at the moment, so could be there for quite a while yet.
I must start taking my camera out with me to get some pictures of the area. We went for a short walk yesterday and discovered we actually have an outdoor adult gym on the recreation ground! Push up bars, air walker, arm exerciser and a side to side exercise thingy. Brilliant!
I’m still not smoking and I’m using lower strength nicotine juice in my E-cig. Not had a ciggy since the beginning of February. Also I’ve lost some weight, so all in all things are going very well.
Will be checking out loads of blog posts soon….
Antibiotics resistance as big a risk as terrorism
This in the news yesterday.
It’s not news though is it? I thought most sensible people knew the risks years ago. It seems maybe there are not enough sensible people about, and that includes G.Ps. Doctors are to be ordered to restrict the prescribing of antibiotics, it is said.
Why do G.Ps have to be told to do this? Common sense would dictate you don’t dole out these medicines willy-nilly.
They are saying apparently that patients are “demanding” these drugs when not necessary, and are given them to avoid confrontation with their doctor. That beggars belief. Plus how many get these drugs, feel better and then don’t complete the course in any case? Do people never learn!
G.Ps giving in to demands like this, knowing the effect on the greater population in years to come seems tantamount to gross negligence as far as I’m concerned.
It makes me so angry.
No particular topic today. I Think my brain has been on a “go slow” just lately.
Four weeks now without smoking. I’m already feeling so much better. Less out of breath. Let’s see what happens in the next four weeks.
Our cockatiel pair have finally produced an egg. Not sure if there will be anymore. This one (if fertile) should hatch in three weeks time. Puts a new slant on having a bird for Easter.
Soon to be parents
We are having our female Staffie (Penny), spayed on Tuesday, so no babies there. It will be fun trying to keep her from bounding around after the op…not.
Penny, watching me on the laptop.
Accrington was on TV again, This time on BBC’s News Night programme.
It was about the changes in welfare benefits. The programme featured a local charity, which deserves a post of its own in the future…but not necessarily for good reasons.
