Me: “Do you want to see my stitches?”
Paul: “No, just like I really didn’t want to see the photos of your drain either.”
I took the waterproof dressing off my neck after my shower today and had a peak – it’s healing well and there is some very neat embroidery, I shouldn’t have much of a scar.
I’m feeling much brighter today although with some residual brain fog. I think it’s the after effects of a long anaesthetic although Paul would say I’ve always been a bit foggy. I took my Kindle into hospital with me but found it difficult to concentrate on reading. As I was browsing through our ‘family library’ I came across The World of Cycling According to G – a book by Geraint Thomas (ghost written before his big win of the Tour last year) and strangely enough it held my attention and I enjoyed reading about how the big pro riders all met as juniors, about their laddish antics and how much they shared their young lives together as they trained. It gives a fascinating insight to the world of competitive cycling.
Anyone who reads my blog regularly knows that I’m a keen cyclist and I like to follow the Tour de France and other big tours. I’m ashamed to say that I only managed about four rides out in total last year but I’m determined to get back in the saddle again this spring and try and regain some level of fitness. As Geraint would say, “the more you do the better you get.”
What are you reading at the moment? Any suggestions for someone who currently has the attention span of a squirrel?
