Just Hangin Around
Had to go to the village this afternoon to collect some blood pressure tablets from the chemists. When I had my phone appointment with the doctor on Tuesday she decided to reduce the dose of the blood pressure tablets I was taking to try and get my potassium levels to come down. So I went to collect a new batch of tablets on Wednesday. However the chemist gave me 2 packs of the old dose. I told him I needed a lower dose so he phoned the health centre but they weren't helpful. So I phoned them on Thursday. They said they would look into it. They phoned back yesterday to say the doctor would send a new prescription to the chemist. So I finally collected my tablets today. What a faff.
As I set off walking to the village my knee became very painful. I was tempted to catch a bus but as there were none due I just carried on walking. The pain eased slightly as I walked so maybe it was a good thing to give it some exercise. Going up and down some steps was a problem though as bending the knee is quite painful. As well as popping into the chemists I also left a bag of stuff at the Oxfam shop and did some food shopping in Tesco. Then walked home. I was glad to get back and just sit for a while and relax.
I haven't really done much today just a few chores. I did listen to the footie on the radio. Not an enjoyable experience. Newcastle were playing away at Norwich and they lost 3 - 1. They were terrible. It doesn't bode well for the rest of the season.
So what to blip for Silly Saturday. Decided on my fun cat coat hangers. I bought them online a while ago - crazy aren't they. But cute. Thanks to admirer for hosting
