Neither here nor there

I can't seem to find the time or the energy to either blog or diet but I have been out and about walking despite my poorly foot.  These pics were taken a couple of weeks ago before the leaves started to turn.  It is stunning now and I took loads of pics on our walk today so next time I'll  post 'em.

I mentioned my poorly toe in my last post.  I've had the appointment with the consultant now and it si reasonable news.  Osteo arthritis has knackered the big toe on my right foot.  It has really flared up this summer and has made walking, dancing, golf and running very sore.  I'm still doing everything but the running but I suffer the day afterwards.

So, I'm biting the bullet and having an operation to (hopefully) sort it on 23 November.  There'll be 2-6 weeks of recovery afterwards with no walking or driving for at least a fortnight.  Gah!!  I've already re-gained the stone I dropped, I'm going to struggle even more when I can't do any exercise.  Much care to be taken.

But, at least with the op there is a fighting chance that I can get on with the things I like doing next year.  Fingers crossed.

How rotten - poor you. Glad you don't have to wait too long for the op though - I'm sure you'll focus on being pain free after the recovery.

I hear you re energy to diet - is it awful to say that I've almost drawn a line under this entire year and am just counting down to renewed efforts in 2016...?!?

Poor thing re toe - I hope the operation goes well and at least it gives you the perfect excuse to put your feet up.

Ohh, poor you! I didn't know there was an op for that - hope it improves things.
