I've Made Friday Week 163

Good Morning everyone!
I hope your week is going well.
I hope you are looking forward to the weekend.

Wow sorry this is a bit late.
I am really not keeping up this summer holidays!

I am loving having Red Monster home.
He is such good fun.
I've been evil mum and am making him
do a small amount of work each day.
I can really tell the difference if I let him
have a few days off.

We having been doing fun stuff as well.
He has gone to the park most days.
We've watched a few films.
I even got him to watch Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.
It's still a fantastic film!

We even had loads of fun singing to rock music.

I was really shocked about the cuts to the NHS.
I have a condition called chondromalacia patella.
I have suffered with it since I fell out of a moving taxi when I was 7.
It wasn't going fast but I fell awkwardly on my pelvis and hip.
Sometimes my pelvis just sits wrong and my muscles etc pull on
one side more.
In previous years I have gone for physio and worked on the issue
with them pulling and pushing me and I've been fine for 
another ten years.
I know the exercises I have to do to help so start with that.
Take the anti-inflammatories and other such fun things.
I did this as normal and went through the process
before they forwarded me to the physio.
By this point I had already chipped a couple of small
pieces of cartalidge in my knee so was in quite a bit of difficulty.
I went to see the physio who didn't even touch me.
She didn't come anywhere near me.
She told me to go away, buy some tape, come back
and she would show me how to tape up my knee
and then I wouldn't need anymore treatment!!!
So the new idea is I purchase my own treatment
and treat myself with a work around that doesn't solve the issue.
Shocked is an understatement.
I will get 4 sessions in the hydrotherapy pool (if I can manage it).
Don't think I will but we'll give it a go.
Even if that doesn't help they don't offer more anymore.
The thing that gets me is the fact that
every other time I have been treated I have had
another ten years of my knees sitting and behaving
Now I get a workaround that won't cure the issue.
The tape isn't cheap and each time I place it on the skin
it gets sorer and sorer.
Oh well looks like we'll have to save up and pay private.

In the meantime it's going to be a lot of this.

I'm really sorry but I haven't got any finishes this week.
I was hoping to get my socks finished but I made
a mistake on one of them
and I had to frog back to the start of the heel.
I'll hopefully have them finished for next week.
