Sounds like you've had a rough time of it lately. It does go hard when you're used to being physically active and can't do so much. Sleep's a great restorative sometimes.
We've had a weeks self catering break in Derbyshire, with both dogs of course. Just pottered lazily around. Very nice rural area which suits us fine as we're not townies. Nice to be home in my own bed though.
Went to the J R in Oxford on Monday. I volunteered to be part of research. 9 visits, each 3 months apart. My husband comes too as one of the "healthy controls". It was our 4th visit. We're put through 1.5 hours worth of tests but it's not at all arduous.
Apparently I'm one of the "lucky" ones as I'm progressing very slowly so far. Which is good to hear but of course I know it won't necessarily always be that way.
To end on a light note - I was brushing my teeth last night and became aware I was no longer alone. Cherry was on her hind legs beside me. Feet on the edge of the basin watching very intently. I couldn't tell her off for laughing, she looked so cute. She's developing a lovely character.
Speak to you soon Ruth
