A lovely wee break!

I have just returned from a marvelous 5 days down at Linda’s … we had the most wonderful weather and spent as much time as we could swimming in her pool … I managed to get my revenge for her naked hot tub dip at Loch Goil by jumping topless into her pool … that was caught on camera … whoops!

We fitted in a lot in my 5 days … visited Chartwell, the home of Winston Churchill, went out to dinner with some of her friends to a wonderful italian in Eastbourne, went to London to see “Motown”, which was superb and Linda treated me to dinner at Veerashamy’s, the UK’s oldest indian restaurant.   Although the journey home was a nightmare as we were turfed off the train at Tunbridge Wells due to fatality on the line and had to get a taxi all the way back to Linda’s!

Sunday, we had a quiet day, because the cold that had been lurking in me came out in full force but we enjoyed Sunday dinner with Linda’s daughter and grandchildren.

Monday, I was still sniffy so we had a drive around the local area, lunch at a seaside restaurant in Eastbourne in the most beautiful weather, followed by a drive to Beachy Head and the surrounding area.   It really is a beautiful part of the country.

I flew home on Tuesday, still stuffed with the cold and Barry met me at the airport with Sprout, who has been spoiled rotten during my time away …. but she was the most cuddle wee thing last night.

Im looking forward to Linda coming up in just over a weeks time, this time we are off to Pitlochry for one night and then two nights in Glencoe… with another hot tub … can’t wait!


Oooyahhhh again!

Second visit of the week to Abdur at Fife Physiotherapy Centre …. that man likes to torture! …. but in all seriousness after just two visits I am already feeling the benefits of his hard work.

He has told me that he has years of tightened muscles to fight in my leg and that it may be painful for me (it is!) … He is also working on my back as the muscles from the shoulder blades down are far too tight because they  are compensating for my limp!

For the first time in a lot of years I can walk and stand on the whole of my left foot and not just the ball … but he did point out to me that now, by habit, I am still tending to weight bear on my right … so I have to change my thinking a bit on that!

As far as my back goes, I can now move freely … I still have some discomfort in my hips but that is due to my arthritis so he won’t be able to do much with that … but I am hoping that after a few more sessions I can walk normally and for a reasonable distance again.

After all these years of being so fed up because nothing seemed to work, and just being plied painkillers, I honestly think I may have found a solution in this amazing man!

I fly down to Gatwick later today for a few days with Linda … she is going to be stunned at how well I am walking! I may even do a little trot towards her!

(then again …… maybe not!)

Happy face …

I love this photo of my wee Sprout! …. it was taken at the Mutt Hutt in Glenrothes, where she goes on a Saturday for an hours play with other dogs.  She will miss it this week coming as I am off down south to see Linda for a few days and Sprout is going to her uncle Barry’s and Neil’s for a wee holiday!

When my old dog Brae died, I really didn’t think I could ever love another dog so much, but this wee cheeky soul has wormed her way into my heart.  Her name Sprout really suits her … she is cheeky and full of happiness at the smallest of things (although she does murder any stuffed toy within 2 minutes of getting it!).

I will miss my wee girl when I am away … although it will be nice to have a rest from making my bed at least half a dozen times a day!

After a few really bad episodes with my back and leg, I decided to stop relying on my doctor and take matters into my own hands.

Today I started physio with Abdur at the Fife Physiotherapy Centre … it was a very interesting hour… Abdur studied the way I walked and stood and where the main areas of pain are.  He also examined my legs to try to understand why I cannot straighten my left leg when I lie down, and have limited side movement in it too.

It seems I have 2 separate issues, but both are related.   He feels the main problem is not my osteoarthritis of the hips, but the tightness I have in my leg… my hamstring is far too tight and the knock on effect is that I limp, causing the muscles in my back to tighten and cause sciatica.

Today he massaged my back to loosen the muscles, it was bloody sore! (and yes I did utter the word “fuck” a few times!)  … but at least he prewarned me! … and I have to go back on Thursday for him to start working on my left leg…  I hope it doesn’t hurt too much as I am flying down to see Linda in the afternoon!

The amazing thing is, that even after just an hour, I was walking much better … and no longer standing with all my weight on my right leg and resting just the ball of my left foot on the ground.

I am hoping that, after all these years, I may have found someone who realises that it is not JUST my leg or not JUST my back causing me problems …

I may run a 10k yet!! (ok ok… perhaps I’m kidding on that one!)

The change in my life since meeting Linda is unbelievable… we had a great 10 days together, culminating in a 2 night Lodge stay at Loch Goil. Next weekend I’m off down south for 5 days at Linda’s, which will include a trip to London to see Motown, followed by a meal at a secret location because she wants to surprise me!…. we then have a weekend booked at Glencoe House at the end of the month… a weekend at a spa hotel in Grantham while I take avow renewal for one of my army pals and her hubby… then a weekend with friends at pods at Loch Katrine!…. in April we are spending a week at her timeshare in Madeira and in October 2019, a weeks cruise around the Med with Olivia lesbian cruises!!! I can’t really believe the change in my life… not only have I met the most perfect woman… but all she wants to do is spoil me… I am struggling with that aspect a little… I just buy wee things for her… but she appreciates everything and me… for that I am so grateful!! Life is good.

As I look back ….
