Friday - Warm and sunny
A weird day!
I got up early (for me) this morning and I got dressed up and went for a walk. I was thinking on the way that my foot hurt a little, but by the end of my walk, it was my hip that was hurting. I got home and honestly have been in pain ever since when I get up and walk around.
I watched some of my TV. I tried to take a nap between my shows, and managed, but I got a delivery from the post office! I got some books that I had bought from someone in Japan. Then, during Charmed, I read the paper, did a little crochet and fell asleep! I woke up 30 minutes later and was terribly surprised that I had fallen asleep.
I had breakfast, slept again. Yikes. I finally got off the couch, painfully, and took a shower. I did some stuff that I needed to do on my computer then scanned my cards. I also had lunch in the middle of this, and watched DCI Bates too. I love British Detective shows.
It was a little after 5 when I decided to run off to the post office. I biked off, and biking was fine. I wasn't putting weight on my hip, so it didn't hurt. A car stopped on the road in front of me, so I stopped too. I tried to get off my bike, but I think I must have put too much weight on my bad hip or something and as I was getting my leg over the bike, realized that I was overbalancing and couldn't stop it. My bike is quite heavy and since I was at the wrong angle…anyway, I'm not badly hurt, but I have a small bruise on my left knee, a huge scrape on my right calf and a wounded ego. The biggest surprise to me was a lady on a bicycle came over to me and asked if I was okay! It was very nice of her, and I think it was the first time that anyone has shown concern for me when something like that happened. I said I was and limped over to the post office to mail my cards.
I gingerly got back on my bike and rode home. F was there already, so I explained my sad tale and he was sympathetic for a change and even got me an ice pack for my knee.
We relaxed for a while and watched some TV. We talked about going shopping for new phones tomorrow. That'll be fun and I hope it is okay to do!
We had dinner in Fireball and it was yummy. Tonight we had madai (a kind of fish) and komatsuna (veg) spaghetti in a cinnamon sauce and smoked salmon and mushroom spaghetti in a vodka sauce. They were both really nice. After dinner we talked to the chef about a gathering next month and made a few arrangements, then came home. F had set up the bread-maker before we left, and it was due to come of any minute!
We made it in time. Just. We had a quiet evening. F was tired as he started work early today and I was and am in pain still. Bah.
I'm not sure what I'm going to get up to tomorrow, come back and see. I hate to say it, but I think my sciatica might be back, but in the other hip now. Grump, grump, grump. That was my day. Not the best one I've ever had! I have to go. Night.
