I don't know if I actually said what I'd had done, it was a bunion op-very glam! It wasn't too bad compared to some I've seen (I should have taken a before pic) but it was causing me pain and I was finding it increasingly hard to find shoes that wouldn't rub against it, so when I found out I could get it done privately I limped at the chance (haha) as I am always on my feet in my job and I thought it would only get worse over time.
I just wish I had realised quite how long it would put me out of action, I can walk but have to wear a velcro shoe THING that I hate and I'm not allowed to bend my toe yet as it still hasn't set properly. I have only walked to my local shop at the end of my road so far and that wears me out because you end up holding your leg stiff and walking like a robot! Also I won't be able to wear 'fashion' shoes for months yet (so the hospital says) and no high heels for 6months! I never wear high heels unless it's car to bar but being told you can't wear them is making me want to so badly!
ETA: before photos.
|not sure why I've got dirty feet here!|
It's been very boring at home, in the week after the op I was nearly crying with boredom at being stuck indoors, I had read all my magazines, surfed the net like crazy, ordered loads of sale clothes - (now mostly returned except, bizarrely, shoes and boots) and watched all my dvd's and I had had enough! As my foot has got easier to stand on I've been having a good sort out, Ebaying stuff I don't want or need and I've started a free trial of Lovefilm.com to while away the boredom. Actually I am really impressed with Lovefilm, I think I will keep the subscription after the 14 days are up, I really like watching films on my laptop which is part of the free trial I have, ideal for if you can't sleep.
What else? I splashed out on a Dyson DC25 Animal vacuum for £230! I have never had a brand new vacuum before, I have always had hand-me-downs so this is heaven! I thought I would get one that Which (another free trial) recommended and I decided to pay more for a machine that was exactly what I needed as I have 2 lazy little cats who don't clean up after themselves, and I hope that this will help me keep my flat cleaner, with less effort from me. Its either that or employ a cleaning lady!
that's all! To quote Miranda Priestly!
