it's school holidays here again and we're renting lots of dvds to keep the kidlets occupied while i bust my butt at work. next week will bring a change of pace because the governing body for our industry (TGA) are making their audit visit and i have been asked not to work more than a couple of days, too much of a loose canon?
masterchef has grabbed my attention as far as tv is concerned and soups are my current favourite food, not so much for the eating but for the cooking. potato and onion soup was this week's special, it makes a change from pumpkin.
and the real news of the week is about my foot. it's been a long story but i had a pressure ulcer for some months, getting appropriate treatment was harder than i expected and i started to despair of it ever healing. the ulcer itself didn't bother me because i couldn't feel it but an unhealed ulcer can lead, at extremes, to severe infection, surgery and amputation. eventually, with the help of my new best friend, podiatrist anthony, the ulcer healed but the story wasn't over. after such a long time it was necessary to check for bone destruction and there was a long wait for the MRI followed by another wait to see the specialist for results.
it was sydney's coldest day in 61 years when i set out to see doctor garth and he was worried that his american visitors would be feeling it.
i wasn't worried about garth's visitors, my foot was fine!!
the day was clear and bright and i celebrated with a take away coffee before work
well, that's it from me. masterchef calls and i'm making a lovely sweet warm comforting indulgent dessert: sticky date sago.
