At the beginning of the week, whilst taking Betty round one of the local fields, my foot slipped on a lump of earth and it's obviously damaged my Achilles tendon. It hasn't been too bad, just a bit sore up until yesterday evening, when we took the dog for a long walk round the Marshes nature reserve. By the time we got back to the car, it hurt like hell and I could hardly walk. Taking anti-inflammatories today, OH will buy some ibuprofen gel for me when he goes to work later. I've ordered a support strap online, it should be here tomorrow. If it's no better next week then I'll go to the GP. In the meantime, I'm just going to rest it up for a couple of days - I've been on my feet all week in the kitchen doing a lot of cooking and baking for the freezer, which I don't suppose has helped it much. I'll do some gentle stretching exercises too over the next few days, hopefully it will get better without me having to go to the doc.
This week I've made 2 lots of dog food and dog biscuits. A fruit cake for the freezer, a double choc chip cake and some muffins. 2 cottage pies, one frozen. 2 fish pies, one to freeze. 2 lots of Frugal Queen's frugal tartiflette. Sorry there's no photos, I didn't think to take any.
