I had occasion to go the the surgery today, yes, on Sunday! Having waited many months for a steroid injection in my hip for the Trochanteric bursitis which has been bothering me, I was delighted to get a message giving me an appointment for this morning. The lovely Mr S suggested that, working on a Sunday, the Doctor might appreciate some home-made cookies so I made some yesterday but forgot to photograph them. The Doctor was, indeed, delighted. He doesn’t get a day off in lieu which really does seem very wrong. By the time I thought of photos, the rest of the bake had been eaten by the lovely Mr S!
I was told to rest for 24 hours to allow the injection the best chance of success so I have spent another day reading. I’ve just started a book I couldn’t leave in the bookshop when we we were in Truro the other day – Sarah Winman’s ‘Still Life,’ and the loveliest coincidence – my cousin who lives in Australia wrote today about a possible visit and said she has just finished reading this book and loved it. I also loved SW’s novel, ‘A Year of Marvellous Ways’
We heard the steamroller before we saw it…….

I’ve never thought to bring cookies to my doctor. What a lovely gesture. I hope the shot is effective and provides real relief.
Love that steam roller. It looks antique. Is it still operational or “just for show”?

I’ve never thought before either but he was having to work on a Sunday which seemed to need reward. It is very old but I don’t think it’s used for work. 🙂

Hope the shot works for you!🤞🏻

Thank you. It has done in the past but the Dr did say that the shots get less effective over time. I’m feeling positive about it working again! 🙂
