I had a training day with the day job on Friday that left me in a lot of pain. I don't do well with sitting for long periods in the same position. At work I have a special chair that moves with me so I am never still (that's the best I can get for comfort at work). But really I am never totally comfortable sitting with my legs down, mostly they have to be elevated (more than the 2 inches off the floor that H&S at work say).
Another aspect of Friday that left me in pain was dealing with public transport. Luckily it was only trains (I don't do buses) but on my way home I had to spend part of the time standing on legs that already hurt. People don't give up seats, and its especially hard when you have a hidden disability as they cant see that you do actually need to sit down. By the time I had hobbled to my car my legs hurt so much that I just cried on my drive home.
So onto my photos:
Day 48 - Red, White, Blue
It came with the car as part of the limited edition pack.
Day 49 - Diamonds:
I proposed to my lovely Mr Mouse, he said yes and we went ring shopping.
Now I don't like big rings, I am not flashy and I like timeless classics so I picked a diamond solitaire. I know that some people will look at my ring and only see the size. Well I looked at bigger ones but they weren't me and frankly would have got on the way when sewing and knitting. My engagement ring does have a little secret - there is another diamond on the inside with the words 'One Love'
Our wedding rings we had made for us - the date is in Roman numeral, very fitting as we were married in Camulodunum. The date is spaced with little diamonds.
I have said to Mr Mouse that I am now collection diamonds.....I see diamond trilogy and eternity rings in my future (Mr Mouse take note).....
Day 50 - Socks:
I have lots of socks and none of them are plain. I often will pick up a new funky pair when I see them, to the point that I have to remember a little mantra 'I have enough socks'.
During the summer you will never see a pair on my feet but as it gets colder there are an essential item of clothing.
I have Raynauds Disease (yes something else that's added to the list, luckily its mild), but my extremities get very cold, numb and I even get chilblains on my toes if I am not careful. It affects my feet, hands (I have to sleep wearing gloves) and even my nose (Mr Mouse keeps saying that they should develop a nose warmer).
My hands and feet get that cold that even when I have warned someone they still tend to be a little surprised, and Mr Mouse threatens divorce if the socks/gloves are removed during the night.
