Hello everyone out in blog land, yes it is me little ole Jo-Anne, not that I am that little, I am short though does that count. I am not dead nor have I been sick, however, I have been somewhat busy this last week and yes one day saw me in a great deal of pain.
So let us have a look at my last few days, Saturday saw Tim off work and both of us going to the shops and over to my parents place for a bit and Saturday afternoon me go over to Jessica’s to take her cough syrup and a few things from Coles as she was sick. Oh the cough syrup she said she wanted one that was blue and said it was called blue on the bottle, I could not find a blue one I asked her for the name she said she didn’t know so I got one and when I got to hers she had found the bottle and what she wanted wasn’t cough syrup she wanted Demazin cold relief medicine for children aged over 6 so no that isn’t cough syrup, which is why I couldn’t find it.
When I arrived Kelli was there she came down to get Leo and take him back to hers so Jessica could have a night to try and recover, well when it came time for them to head back to hers he didn’t want to go so he ended up being here Saturday night.
Sunday saw Tim off again and going for a motorbike ride with Michael who on Friday night bought himself a motorbike and Kathy drove Leo back to his mums place.
Speaking of Michael and his motorbike the guy he bought it from brought it to Michael and Michael took it for a test ride and when he was turning around to go back to the house he nearly dropped the bike and there was mark on the bike so he thought I had better buy it now that I have damaged it…………..lol
Monday saw Tim and I drive my brother and his family along with some of their friends to Sydney they have gone on a cruise around the South Pacific Islands, at the moment I am not dog sitting my sister Sandra is there but if she decides to go home I am willing to go over and stay with the dogs.
Tuesday saw me going to Charlestown Square to help mum with her Christmas toy layby, now I had pain in my right ankle/ achilles tendon and had trouble walking but while helping her I felt/ heard a pop from my ankle followed by extreme pain so much pain I cried out in pain and my sister Sandy heard my cry out and came running to see what was wrong. Now some people might thing I would pack in the shopping and come home and rest or go straight to see a doctor but no not me I continued to help mum, sliding my right foot across the ground as I could not put and weight on the ankle/foot. When I did get home I spent the rest of the afternoon sitting with me feet up and doing nothing.
So Wednesday saw me off to the doctors to see what he had to say, I was able to walk a bit better yesterday and the pain level was back to the normal everyday level of pain I have in the right ankle and the doctor didn’t even look at the ankle he just said I need an ultrasound to see what is happening and to go back and see him when I have had it. So I came home and rang around and the earliest I could get in to have it done was Tuesday morning. I didn’t exercise yesterday, I slept in and rested the ankle.
That brings us to today, yes I got up at 4.30am and did an hour of exercise although I had to pack it in after an hour as my ankle was hurting.
The weather here has been bloody cold of a morning and afternoon but not too bad during the day, although on Monday when Tim and I were coming back from Sydney, Tim had the drivers side window down and I was bloody cold I had the heater on and Tim was complaining he was hot which he said was why he had the window down, I told him to shut off his vents so the hot air wasn’t blowing on him but no he still kept the bloody window down.
