What a day. Be still, my beating heart. Actually, sod it, keep on racing. If I can’t enjoy days like Thursday, I might as well give up.

As part of the post-surgery anti-clotting campaign, I’m advised to wear compression stockings for 42 weeks (only 41 to go…). As if that simple sweat-inducing fashion statement wasn’t enough, Mr H also insisted that I be plugged into the Stormtrooper Matrix for at least 24 hours after surgery (see above). The self-inflating cuffs are called Flowtrons; I can’t be the only one imagining a Transformers-esque spin-off story? Continue reading “Blankety Blanks (Part Two) – The Prequel and The Sequel”

Rach is receiving visitors so feel free to drop me a line so that I can coordinate.
