Well, I thought I was on the mend and thought I could manage without the stick this weekend. Then I had a bad night last night, legs were painful and I couldn’t get comfortable so didn’t get much sleep. Couldn’t move very well this morning so phoned in sick and went back to bed until midday.
Apart from a few extra walks to the staff room yesterday I didn’t think I had walked very far. I did the grocery shopping as usual on Sunday but I have the trolley to hang onto as usual. Ah well, two steps forward, one back!
Hopefully, as I’m moving a little easier now, I will be okay again tomorrow. I guess I need the stick for a bit longer. Damn! I do like to learn the hard way.
On the plus side, it gives me a chance to have a dummy run at making a chocolate salted caramel cake in readiness for next week’s Cake Break. Wish me luck. Next week I have to bake for 3 consecutive nights and I will probably have to skip my afternoon naps to fit it all in. I’ll be back on the Amantadine to keep me going and I don’t like taking it as it makes me feel a bit odd; I’d rather have a little sleep. Thankfully, it’s a Bank Holiday weekend straight after - I have a feeling I’m going to need at least an extra day’s rest …
Right, time to put the oven on and sit down to weigh the ingredients.
