It’s probably nothing compared to other parts of Europe, but it’s -6.5° as we came home, and falling. We’ve split the dining room into two to make it easier to heat and the outer part is at 0°! Obviously we heat the inner part, in case you think we don’t heat any of it!! A solitary couple of guys ventured out into the nippiness tonight to give us something to do, so we are home quite early, hence a blogortunity.
Also, been suffering with a really sore left elbow and related muscular pain down to my wrist since just just after Christmas (mysteriously coincides with having a go at a new dance-ercise dvd that I got from Santa, but shh, don’t tell anyone!) So finally went to the Docs today for a diagnosis. Of-course I was convinced that it was bone cancer and Dave bet me €1 I’d get anti-inflammatories. Of-course he was right and I rightly paid up. He reckons he could go into business as a Doc and just oscillate between prescribing anti-inflamms, and anti-biotics. The other point here, really, is the oddity of knowing your Doc on a social level as well, it’s just more interesting to talk about skiing! It’s kind-of odd, but also a bit comforting. I know he finds it a bit wierd too – he socialises with loads of his patients!
So anyway, no bone cancer, thank heavens, just tennis elbow, torn tendons that join the muscle of my forearm to my knobbly elbow bone. So it has a name and I can plead weak and feeble! However rest is one of the treatments……I’ll have to teach Dave to cook…..on second thoughts…
Well, there’s only one thing you can do in these circs, and that is to go off and meet some good mates in a fab apartment in a new resort (to us)a 5 hr drive away for a couple of days and completely skive off for an extra couple of days. So we’re off on Sunday after the lunch service and back on Weds. Can’t wait!!
