Well, I’m 59 today and getting back to the real me. For those of you who know Ikea, I built a billy bookcase, 6′ high (I’m only 5′1″ ish) carried it from my sons lounge into his boiler room, lifted it over the washing machine, put it in place and screwed it to the wall. Phew, hard work carrying it but I did it, had to use quite a bit of strength in my leg but I was careful.
Went to the football yesterday, (City actually won 3-0) and the young woman who sits next to my husband had broken her ankle in 2 places and Roy an elderly gent in front of me had been unwell and was using a walking stick, general opinion was if you didn’t have a crutch you couldn’t sit in our section!!! Quite funny really but I think I won in the injury stakes.
ps UK Nodger, my brother had read the blog and has got the Adrian Chiles’ book so is letting me have a read of it. His wife is a Baggies fan!! Just watching the cricket on Sky - Lancs v Sussex, my son has gone down from Manchester to Hove for the game, expected back at 3 a.m. (or thereabouts) and is due in work at 8 a.m. must be mad.
