Things can only get better

New beginnings:
1. My new leg brace. It doesn't feel nearly as stable as my old one. I think it's because it's so much lighter and I'm just not used to something not heavy and large that goes from the middle of my thigh all the way down to my mid calf. It also makes my leg quite sore. The consultant told me to wear it for short periods to start with, so a full on Zumba hour was not on the cards. I decided to see how it went and I managed just over half an hour, which wasn't bad. I think the whole experience wasn't helped by new Zumba shoes, which are also very light. Two lots of light in one day seemed just a bit much.

2. My first outing with my league bowls team. This was the most embarrassing game of all. I managed to totally disgrace myself and if I don't pick up it could well be that I'm off the team before I've even really started. Out of 12 ends I managed to get 4 bowls reasonably close, 2 of which won 2 ends, but that was it. Oh ****!


  1. As you say Vee- things will get better. It's always the way isn't it, that when you want to impress you fall flat on your face!I'm sure the bowling wasn't as bad as you think and your new team will have made allowances for nerves. Well, either that or they'll be amazed at your novel approach heh!

  2. Well Mari, it was very much 'don't give up the day job' said through gritted teeth. I think that says it all!
