How time flies!

It really does seem like time flies by these days.

I’ve had my serial casting pots on for four weeks now and it’s passed very quickly, which I’m going to say is a good thing.

I’m still not sure when they’re going to be coming off yet, that will all depend on when my new splints arrive, and when the splints ( AKA orthotics department) can fit me in at a time that suits them both. I don’t mind being in the casts for as long as it takes, but I won’t deny that I’m looking forward to them coming off.

As I’m sitting here typing this, I have an itch on my left leg that is just under the pot and just out of reach. It’s been here for a couple of minutes now, and because I’m writing about it, it’s making it seem worse. So I think I’ll talk about something different…

So, anyway, (she says, trying hard to focus on the keyboard and nothing else), I’ve had this current pair of casts on for two weeks and no one has signed them this time. They have been sort of customised by accident though because they are covered in bits of fluff from the slipper socks that I’ve been wearing to keep my feet warm. The bits close to my toes and heels are starting to go pink and black, which kind of makes me smile. I’m pretty sure someone will come at them with a marker pen before too long, though.

Speaking of decorating, I’m already thinking of how I can cover Martha in trimmings for Christmas this year. I was talking to mum about this earlier today and she has a few ideas too, so between us we might be able to come up with some form of festive fun for my walking frame.

If you have any suggestions for things that you think might look good and are fairly easy/cheap that I could try, feel free to suggest and I’ll see if I can incorporate any of them.

  1. O-M-G I hate that!!! there’s nothing worse than getting an itch you can’t get to….. I always get an itch when I have my splints on and can’t find somewhere to sit and take them off!!
    I was in a crafty shop this afternoon and saw some ribbon with reindeer on, that could be good for decorating!


    1. I know that feeling well. Or when your sock slips down and the splint starts sticking to the back of your leg I you can’t pull it back up again.

      Oh, that ribbon sounds nice, I might see if I can find some.


      1. oh I hate that!! I actually buy special afo socks, they are expensive but really comfy as they hug your leg and don’t bunch up or slip down


  2. neither did I until a couple of years ago, they are called smartknit afo socks. they are an American idea. A friend of mine told me about them, she uses them in the summer as they help keep your feet and calves cooler in the splints and helps stop rubbing.
