Well, I didn't get around to posting anything at all yesterday, did I....... I actually drove to the next town, which is 2 miles away. You may cheer at this point. I also managed to walk around Tesco. With a trolley. And bought my son some jeans. And then I drove to the DIY store, to ask about my loo seat which had lasted all of 3 months and then severed all connections with the actual bowl, which is a trifle inconvenient, as one battles not to slide onto the floor at strategic moments. They told me they would exchange it. So I drove home. See???? I live an exciting life.
So, I unscrewed the old seat, washed it thoroughly, and at that point, Jean arrived and said - let's go to Tesco!!! So I, of course, said yes! Let's go! I can push the trolley! And oh, can we go to the DIY store too please?
Anyway, I had a lovely time, pushing the trolley. And collecting the new seat. As I said - I have been cooped up here too long. Never mind that I had, by then, walked the equivalent of a million miles in comparison to normal days, and the leg was letting me know. Very clearly.
The loo seat took on added importance, you see, because today, I had a visit from the school powers-that-be, and human resources people, to assess my state of health/when I go back to work/what is happening etc etc etc. I did not think that sliding off the loo would make a wonderfully good impression.
They came, and it went well, I think, after I showed them the knee in all its glory as they sat down on the couch. It may well have put them off their coffee, which Jean sorted. She was here as my friend, and just happens to be a teacher and an ex-head teacher. So that was good. But that is one hurdle over with at least.
And the loo seat behaved.
But now I am a wreck - totally wiped out. I am spending the weekend with my son and his wife - my friend happens to be going down that way for the weekend, so will drop me there on her way and collect me on her way back, and I will get to see David too. So I can take him all the stuff he left behind. It all works out perfectly.
Maybe I had better go and hunt for the things he wants....
