Headbanging and Rollercoasters!

Ok so I got my ass in gear earlier and got dressed *yay*

Then decided to stick on some tunes as they always lift my mood.. stuff that I can sing & dance along to (read dance as in waddle my ass and sing as in strangle a cat!) Tunes like Chrissie Hynde - Live & Let Die, Santogold - Creator, Beyonce - Freakum Dress, Jack White & Alicia Keys - Another Way to Die, Timbaland - Apologize, Goldfrapp - Black Cherry and Jai Ho - PussyCat Dolls.

Anyway did a few bits.. folded washing, put another load on for tomorrow, peeled & chopped potatoes for tonight's dinner, planned tomorrows dinner and then sat down for a rest... Not overdoing it is it? Except that 10 mins later I was overcome with such a banging headache.. immense pressure as if my head was going to explode and this was accompanied by a roller coaster tummy... it made me so sick!

The reason? Shortly after we had an almighty clap of thunder and the rain came down! Whenever we have thunderstorms I always feel yuck just before but nothing like this before... and now we've had it I feel just dandy!

So now I've got my feet up with a cuppa tea and everything else can wait until tomorrow...


Ok... so the time is almost 1.45pm and I'm still sat here in my dressing gown! I feel bad writing that fact but also with a slightly "and?" feeling.. I had a lie in until 10am and felt good for it.. got up with all intentions of getting dressed, having brekky, taking meds and then getting on with some housework (only a little bit as I'm still only 3 and a bit weeks post op)

Instead I had brekky (good start!), then took meds (even better!) but thats where its stopped...

I know I need to get my arse out of this chair.. in fact I'm sat here thinking well why don't you stop writing and get your arse up..

Truth is..... I feel like I have no energy.. I have been walking around a bit without my crutches but now my quads (more specifically and for those in the know.. the vastus lateralis) are saying they're at their limit and I need to use at least one of my crutches...

So I know that thats going to limit what I can do but maybe thats a good thing because it means I don't overdo it... and hubby did leave strict instructions that I wasn't to overdo things!

Ok then... thats settled then... I've had my rant... I feel slightly better and so I shall go get dressed and see what activites I can partake in with one crutch...

Catch ya laters!
