The great and the mediocre come together here today. The great part is that I WENT OUT! And I actually managed to fold my leg into a cinema seat. And I saw Mama Mia, the movie. If you haven't been, go. Go now! It is the ultimate feelgood movie of the summer, and I laughed till I cried. Meryl Streep is something else, and people, the lady is 59....... 59! There is hope still. I am obviously going to blossom in the next 5 years and go to Greece, and dance on a wall and a table. And sing like a dream and look amazing. And Julie Walters was so funny....
I am a little over the top here, but I went out. OUT. I loved it. And do you know what? Every single person in the movie theatre left laughing and smiling, and yes, there were men there too. Hello world. I am back. Robocop is alive.
The mediocre is that my consultant's secretary is away till the 26th August, the first appointment I can get is on the 27th, which makes me think the consultant is away too. It would have been good if he had mentioned this before my friends paid a small fortune for the rapid MRI - and I will be less than happy if the free one appears before he returns.
So while I have had it done, I know nothing. And treatment can't begin till after the 27th, which is 5 days before I am due back at work at the start of term on the 1st Sept. The same day David may be starting uni.
Back to the good - I am about to go off and have a manicure. The bride from the wedding a month or so ago, is treating me, her Mum and another friend, who helped with the dresses, to a visit to the salon in the village. There will be much laughter and lots of coffee involved.
I will be back!
