Good morning everybody! I hope you are all well this fine day.
Let's get to it. What did I learn this week:
- Les Miserable on DVD is much more enjoyable than I expected. I would have loved seeing the theatre performance at the West End in London.
- My daughter, Beautiful B, has never seen Dirty Dancing and seen as she has booked tickets for us to see it in the London theatre she should see the film first. I thought everyone had seen Dirty Dancing - I did when it was first released...12 times.
- Using two pillows to prop your feet up on doctors advice is not as effective as using a foot raiser pillow designed for that very thing, nor is it as comfortable.
- Despite declaring that he did not find the steam iron quicker than a normal iron when it was first purchased, after a little practice Hubby should now be eating his words.
- Season 5 of Castle is just as funny as previous seasons, especially the episode where the police are followed around by a film crew.
- Apple and Pear cordial tastes delicious.
- You can get used to drinking plain water within a week of giving up Pepsi Max and Coca Cola.
- It takes some time to get used to the gearbox in a new car, especially moving from a 1.4l to 1.1l engine, after having the old car for over 8 years.
- Despite being a large burly bloke, Hubby is much more sensitive to a harder suspension in the new car and mentions it more than he should.
- Pain in the heels is known medically as Plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a tough and flexible band of tissue that connects the heel bone with the bones of the foot, and acts as a kind of shock absorber to the foot. Pain is caused by wear and tear of the planter fascia and as I evidently like to be special I have bilateral heel pain.
- Being overweight is not a good idea if you have heel pain, and as flat shoes exacerbate the pain wearing trainers doesn't help. I really cannot see me walking a 5km trail in a low to medium heel on shoes can you?
- Abi will spend 20 minutes trying to get under the computer desk to find the smallest crumb of cake imaginable.
- The J. R. Ward books about the Vampire Blood Brotherhood are an excellent series of books and I highly recommend them.
