Back to where we started . . .

On 22 August, 2012 I took a foot selfie.  Fractured fibula, six weeks in plaster - all good.

On 28 September, 2012, the plaster came off and I took this foot selfie when I got into the car outside the physiotherapists.

Nothing from inside that plaster that a good loofah and a slather of moisturiser won't fix.

Today - 3 December, 2013

After struggling for almost sixteen months with pain and swelling, I had an appointment with an ankle specialist last week.  Today I've had an MRI and been fitted with this fabulous device called an aircast or moonboot.  The specialist is of the opinion that I have torn peroneal tendons in my ankle, which would have occurred the night I fell down and snapped the fibula.  This is yet to be confirmed by the MRI, and I won't know for sure for another week and a half.  In the meantime, it's now summer and this is a very tightly fitted piece of plastic.  Which I may need to wear for three months . . . i.e. till the end of summer.  Happy days.


  1. Those purple toes are pretty impressive! Dammit. I can't really wear shoes yet either and it's Winter here. I think we need to have a drink to each other. Cheers!

  2. I'll drink to that! Cheers! In fact, I'll drink to anything at the moment . . . hic . . .

    Thanks Connie, sorry to hear that your foot issues are stopping you from dancing in your Jimmy Choos. You don't appreciate your feet till they start misbehaving.

    Clink - here's to us! xx

  3. Ow, sorry to hear and very frustrating for you. Positives, time to blog and read, watch movies, maybe crochet, knit, write a book? Hope you are up and running soon. xxx

    1. Thanks Rae. I find the sitting very frustrating, with any luck we are on the mend - I'd be happy with walking, let alone running! xxx

  4. Juliet!! You kept your Pot o' Gloss? I can still remember the smell. How are you feeling these days?

  5. Hi Connie! Yes indeedy, the strange things you can't seem to throw out! I'm getting there - wherever 'there' is . . . I hope your own foot issue are resolving as well. xxx
