Things to do when…

26 Mar

…you rupture your Achilles.

1) Bake – move over Paul Hollywood

2) Sort out your wardrobe – if you wish to pick up a item from my A/W wardrobe 2012 its now on Ebay

3) Read – I am now intimately acquainted with Amazon’s top ten list. I am now putting my focus onto the classics

4) Memorise the tv schedule – like people who memorise cards, I have memorised tv schedules. You name it I’ll know the time and channel (Freeview, Sky & Virgin)

5) Find a new job – yes I have

      Thanks Micah. Hope all goes well with your recovery. Did you have an operation?
      Try Ebay for boards, I got mine there, its a life saver

        No surgery, have gone for conservative management so have my foot in equinus plaster for 3 weeks (should have been 2 but its Easter weekend), then review.
        I can’t find many blogs on this method, although several people I know have also opted for/been offered non surgical recovery.
        It feels like a long road at the moment, but has been great to read your Bridget Jonesesque experience.
