Update

5 weeks and 1 day on and my ankle is healing well. I am still wrapped in tubi-grip but the pain is not so constant.  Sitting with my leg up is no problem on rainy days, but not so good when the sun shines.  However, things are definitely improving. We hope to get back to Dance Class after another few weeks. Or maybe that is fanciful.

Crochet is coming on well – 9 lap/cot blankets have been sent to charity and I am now working on a larger blanket for HBTW.

As for a commentary on the news – no thanks. It is either too complicated, too scary or too boring, so I am taking the coward’s way out. Perhaps this is the beginning of wisdom, or maybe I am hatching something.

Happy springtime.

    Happy Springtime to you too Freda.
    I’m glad your ankle is on the mend, but dancing? Surely not a god idea yet.
    Couldn’t you find something less energetic. like rock-climbing or skiing?

    PS. Did you spot the ahem deliberate mistake?

    I hate being laid up. Time to read about Stevenson’s Land of Counterpane, especially now that you are in Scotland and making a blanket. When I was sick as a kid, and that was often, my Mom would read to me and this was my favorite poem. Dianne

    When I was sick and lay a-bed,
    I had two pillows at my head,
    And all my toys beside me lay,
    To keep me happy all the day.

    And sometimes for an hour or so
    I watched my leaden soldiers go,
    With different uniforms and drills,
    Among the bed-clothes, through the hills;

    And sometimes sent my ships in fleets
    All up and down among the sheets;
    Or brought my trees and houses out,
    And planted cities all about.

    I was the giant great and still
    That sits upon the pillow-hill,
    And sees before him, dale and plain,
    The pleasant land of counterpane.

    I’ve been away too long. I don’t know why your ankle is propped up! I’ll go back and catch up while you rest and mend. :)

    Thanks for the good wishes, and I also know the Land of Counterpane from childhood, Ray. A much loved poem, and as a child I didn’t notice the gender bias.

    I’m not Ray, ha ha. Dianne
