Showers Of Blessing!

Yesterday my mate Carole kindly chauffeured me to the Medical Centre. [thanks C] The District Nurse checked my leg, removed all the dressings and steri-strips and pronounced everything fine and dandy. She put a small, clear waterproof dressing over one small wound which wasn’t quite healed up, and said that with care [and clingfilm] I could have a shower.

Then Carole took me to Cherry Tree Gifts for a coffee, which was a real treat. I am beginning to feel that life is getting back to normal.


Today I raided Bob’s box ** of PA gear for some gaffer tape [red, yellow, black, white, silver…why does he need all those colours?] and waterproofed the whole area. You can hardly see the little dressing on the inner part of the knee.

There is no way that a 4’11½” woman can photograph her own knee and make her leg look long and slim. “But it’s not long and slim anyway” said Bob. Well, I accept that – but it looks even shorter and fatter than usual in this shot! But at least it is clean!

Never take hot showers for granted.

[**that should be one of his many, many boxes of PA gear!]


  1. Well done for showers. Bet you feel immensely better now! Gorgeous in any attire!!

  2. Oh dear, I've been out of things for a while - what have you done to your leg? Hope it's better soon. x

    1. Just minor surgery to sort out some dodgy cartilage - should be back to normality in a week or so!

  3. What good news! I am so glad that you are on the mend.

  4. I can imagine what bliss the shower must have been. So glad that things are healing well.
    Keep up the resting.

  5. Oh, the first shower is heaven!

  6. Oh, I never take hot showers for granted. Especially in winter - they are such a luxury and blessing. So glad you could finally enjoy one again!

    When I saw your leg photo my first thought was, "Gosh, look at that nice slim calf." (My legs look like stumps in photos.) So when I got to the bit about photographing your own knee, I had to laugh. Honestly your leg looks slim to me!

    P.S. Mr. M does not have gaffer tape, but his collection of electrical tape and duct tape is quite colourful and impressive. Ah well. We have shoes and yarn ... they have hardware and tape. :)

  7. Hope your knee is much better now. Your ankle look much slimmer than mine!
