Yesterday's hijinx are having an impact on drawing today.

And by 'hijinx', I mean a trip to the dental surgeon to have my bruxism splint adjusted, and a trip home by tram because I could, although once again it was the 500 metre walk to my house that seems to have done me in, even though I took it slowly.

~~~

I am still trying to work on my waddle and get a normal stride going again. All these parts used to work in sync with each other without any conscious effort on my part, now they only vaguely remember working together and they converse rather too much about it.

It's almost like having sea legs. On the plus side, the fact that the various components are at least conversing, and the fact that sea legs resolve, makes me feel optimistic.

My trips up and down the driveway are now a display of funny walks as my legs and I reminisce about the good old days and try to remember what actually used to happen.

I was thinking last Thursday that your walking gait had improved.

Oh that's brilliant! Thankyou.

I guess it's hard for me to see improvements because they build up so slowly - so that's very encouraging feedback.

nice there is some silver lining from not having seen you for ages :-)

The Rolling Stones are going on tour AGAIN? Didn't they do their Farewell Tour a few years back? And even then, Jay Leno observed that they were selling commemorative walkers on their last concert tour. I'm guessing whoever mummified Keith Richards figures the body will last one more round?

Kudos on doing the walking. Most people don't understand what an ordeal that can be. Ah, ye good olde days.

Apparently they're coming here. They're still on the Farewell Tour, they just had to have a little lie down in the middle...

Which I can totally understand.

Thankyou. The walking is further compromised by a leg fracture two years ago - CFS prevented me from doing all the necessary rehab, so I'm not convinced I'll ever improve as well as a well person would.
