Go to work early, finish at 2, have a nap for an hour and then start all over again... It does work...
The reason I finished at 2 today was a privilege afternoon holiday for Maundy Thursday so after the nap I got all the housework done, baked a cake, cooked a demon chilli con carne from scratch and did all the washing and ironing.
I am now free to play cars tomorrow,,,
And catch up on what's been going on here..
Early tomorrow morning I’ll be baking bread... Kneading dough is incredibly therapeutic...
And then doing an ATF change on the XM, checking her spheres and doing other minor TLC ready for a run in her ton Somerset on Saturday to see Dad...
I have been following the instructions of my therapist and also getting great results from pacing Jim, I've felt really quite good for some weeks now, and I've got the pain meds sorted too.
However - and I've worked out a major no-no - I spent a couple of hours out in the cold chasing Sam around parks yesterday. About 6pm, I just crashed and was pretty bad the whole evening. Couldn't Had a big bowl of porridge and crawled into bed about 9pm and suffered for a while before dozing off. Drugged myself up this morning, feel ok again.
I'd say feel free to pop in to Staines on your way to or from Somerset, but I'm not sure if you go M25/M3 or not.. we're about a mile off the M25 and have Earl Grey..
