I took my brave pills and let the dr dig around some more- couldn't find anything!!!! I'm still hobbling but not as badly. Maybe it's just bruised- I jolly well hope so.
I'm feeling like a fat little piglet after yesterday. I'm sure I didn't really need to eat everything I laid my eyes on- but I did. We've been having lots of fun today with my new pressie- a tomtom!. One of those global positioning systems. I'm hopeless ( or rather- very good) at getting lost. Today sexy richard told us where to go and when to turn. Irish sean was a dead loss and gave up on us but down to earth aussie ken/kevin ( not sure exactly) was patient and just kept giving us other options when we ignored his advice. lol- we are such children here!!

I'm starting to get quite enthused about the idea of studying again. Having lots of thoughts about possible research- hopefully this will come to fruition and not just keep getting pushed back into something I might do one of these days.
My left foot is still battling plantar fasciitis and now my right foot is battling with maybe having something in it!! I trod on something in the kitchen on Wednesday and although it doesn't look as though anything is in it and the doctor doesn't think there is either- it's still mega sore!!! I'm a mess of hobbling feet! The doctor said the only way to be really sure is to inject anaesthic and have a jolly good look- eeekkkkk- I'm such a baby when it comes to pain (he says it's character building!!) Meanwhile I'll just try to ignore my lower limbs.

This is the first year that I haven't had school holidays!!! I know, I know - "welcome to the real world"!! If anyone says that to me again I might just clock them! I'm sure lots of people think that teachers have it easy with all those holidays but nothing makes up for the hours and hours of work at night / weekends/ and holidays. I'm not making this up- the work load is relentless.
I don't miss that part but I do miss being busy throughout my day. I find that gym work is spasmodic with lots of cancellations from clients especially at this time of year. Next year I think I might do some study of some sort. I've been looking into fitness courses or I could seriously think about a doctorate! Perhaps combining disability and fitness. I considered this some years ago but could never come up with a suitable 'question' to research!! Anybody got any suggestions????

After Saturday and the cycling experience I've done nothing but EAT!!! I have been so hungry and now can't seem to stop.

Really enjoyed yesterday and all that spinning. I reckon we were in the saddle for at at least 4 and half hours- not flat out but working pretty hard! Owowowwow- my bum!!! and owowowow my knee!!!. However - the instructor was fantastic and taught us heaps- especially all the safety stuff and technique. After a bath at home I was ready to dance the night away- and did!!!

Whoowooo- tomorrow I learn to be a Cycle Instructor. Hope my behind can recover!!

Was perusing the paper yesterday and noticed the entry form for 'run for the kids' in April. Made my decision- I'll do it!! I went in the first one they had - 2006- and it was just the best run- all through the city, over bridges and through tunnels, bumper to bumper people which made the time pass really quickly. I was looking forward to doing it again this year but my foot got in the way. However - MY FOOT is really improving and at least I will be able to walk this event with maybe the occasional minute ( or more) of running. It makes me feel good and positive at least to think about doing it.

I'm not a shoe hoarder or buyer, in fact I rarely buy any shoes other than running shoes but I couldn't resist these !! If you look closely you'll see how much of a bargain they were. Now I need the LBD to go with it!

I've been tagged by debstar and it's about which picture is on your desktop. At the moment I've got a picture of an English cottage covered in wisteria- it's not one I've taken , it's a downloaded one from webshots. I usually change the desktop quite frequently. I'll have to think about who to tag cos not many people seem to read my blog- sob sob

Hmmmmm- interesting update here- well I thought it was interesting!. Decided I would show anyone who was interested the progress of those pots I planted earlier in the year. I'm very impressed at how this one has progressed- see below! However, when I got the old photo on the screen I realised that ONE OF MY POTS IS MISSING!!! A hunt is required ! Perhaps that can be my next w/e job. Sad thing too- the edge of the cat in the 'before ' pic is 'bad cat' who disappeared while we were away- presumably to go to a better place as she was very old. I still wonder if she will one day appear in the driveway.
