all clear

So  I went to the doc and I had the physio come see me for the last time... yep... got the all clear.  I'm going back to work after being off for 9 weeks.

I'm allowed to continue my 'rehab' and have some new exercises as well as being allowed to get back on wasabi on the road..

Of course I had to ride asap.... So this morning at 6.30am  I did my first 20km out on the road with my very own fisherman/mamil coming to keep me company.

The conditions probably couldn't have been much worse for a come back ride... headwinds and 30 degree heat even at 7am!!

But the tailwind home was sweet reward.  I felt pretty good, but didn't want to push it on the first ride... it was a slower ride, yes i could feel a few niggles but I was and am still grinning!
Need to take some new photos... this is actually about 13 bags of stuff I gathered from the girls rooms... I did a massive clean out and changed beds around etc  so savers scored big time and so did I.

Off to my guilds Christmas meeting for a while, and best of all the froglet is coming home tonight with her man for Christmas!!  woot... been 4 months since I have seen her.

On the improve

 So here is my beloved bike... Wasabi
 Shes on the trainer.....
 I may or may not have done some extra minutes on her last night.... my neighbours may or may not have heard me singing to my music....   was rather happy to be spinning my legs.
Its blurry..but the big tree IS up for the first time in a few years.... I couldn't remember what colours I have... So I sorted through the bags of deco's.... I threw out an entire rubbish bag of broken ornaments and manky tinsel.   I'm going shopping tomorrow for a few more bits and pieces... I have a bit of a theme going of owls, mushrooms and apples....

moving on!

 So here is the next row of the double wedding ring.  The froglet turned 21 this week... I cant believe its been 21 years since she entered my life... and she certainly made a huge entry.

I'm getting excited again as she and her solider boy will be home in 16 days for Christmas and new years... then she will be coming home from Brisvegas for 6 months.... road trip coming up!!
So now my other exciting news.... saw my physio today and I can chuck the crutches!  I can now increase my exercises ANDDDDDDDDDDDDD I sat on wasabi today... oh my!  how excited am I!  hahahaha....  had to come to a compromise with the physio... she said she didn't want me to ride for another 2 weeks... but you let me sit on my bike!!   So I have a hybrid bike.. its more upright and has a big fat arse seat... I can go for short rides and increase as it feels ok.... BUT I can also put my wasabi on the wind trainer and start riding on the back verandah.  WOOOT!!

So stay tuned..... going to be some posts about my numb butt no doubt in the next couple of weeks... but I will be smiling as I will be riding!!
