Did you know No: 15



Good morning, haven't heard from me for a few days, as I don't blog on a weekend generally speaking.

Saturday I did a casserole for lunch and Jessica, Leo, Kathy-Lee & Summer came for lunch, Tim doesn't work Saturdays so he was here as well and even though he says he doesn't like casseroles he ate it. After lunch Tim & I went to the square (local shopping centre) to do a bit of shopping and I was able to hire a motorised scooter so had no problem getting around.

I saw the GP on Friday afternoon and he said that I have torn my achilles tendon (which I knew) and to stay off it as much as possible. He also said I should have physio which I am not keen on, the ankle is healing the pain level has gone from an 8 to around a 2. I am going to my aqua class this morning so we will see how that goes.

Well it is Monday so that means it is “did you know” day, so here is this weeks facts

Interesting fact there Jo-Anne.
I don't always blog on weekends either, sometimes I do though - have heaps of cooking to do every second weekend when the little ones are here..
