In the coming weeks I'll probably be around here a bit less.
In 'two sleeps' (as the girls say) I'm having my right ankle reconstructed.
It's scheduled surgery so we've been able to plan for it, which helps a bit.
Team sport is great, I am a huge advocate of sport/recreational activities in all guises.
It's just that 25 years of quite competitive basketball and many, many sprains, strains and injuries to the same, somewhat weakened joint, has left me finding some day-to-day tasks (like walking down stairs, or stepping backward to push a swing) quite difficult and painful.
So into hospital I go.
My question to you is - what do you do to fill in your time when given an enforced rest?
- I thought I would write a few letters, by hand, you know the old-fashioned way.
- Write the girls a 'now you are four' letter to put away as a keepsake.
- Read, a lot.
But what else to do?
Please share your ideas with me about what to do to keep these usually busy hands from being idle.
Things you need to keep in mind;
- I am seriously crap at crochet and knitting!!
- It is my right ankle being operated on, also known at the foot that pushes the pedal on the sewing machine, not sure how I will go 'driving' my machine with the left.
PS - thanks for all the lovely feedback for the nappy wallet tute - I will get onto it ASAP but given my 'to do' list it might be a few weeks away! Sorry!
