I think we broke a record this morning! Lovely Husband drove me to my appointment with my main consultant (who, by the way, is excellent) and we arrived to an almost empty waiting room. We only had to sit for a few minutes before we were called in. Usually, the waiting area is heaving and we have to wait for ages, sometimes even hours!
Anyway, the really good news is that I have actually lost a little bit of weight since my last visit, and my blood pressure is totally normal. The doctor made it very clear that I have to make myself exercise to prevent the very serious consequences of becoming totally bedridden with muscle wastage and loss of bone. He appreciated that this is extremely difficult for me to achieve, but emphasised that, somehow, I have to try to force myself. Lovely Husband, who was a PE teacher, is fully on board, as you would expect, and I have told him that he must kick me up the bum (metaphorically speaking!), if I don’t.
So, I must get my exercise chair out of the garage, blow off the dust, and use it regularly. Also, I really must walk around the area as often as I can. Yes, I know I have said and written this lots of times before, but I have been given a real wake up call!
Today’s outfit was one of my favourites and one of the nurses remarked on my obvious love of purple and lilac!
- Purple cotton mix crew-neck top – Lands’ End.
- Pale lilac cotton mix crew-neck cardigan – Lands’ End.
- Indigo cotton straight leg jeans – Klass.
- Violet resin and gold Medusa earrings – Grand Tour Collection.
- Blue iris leather and pale gold Vara bow wrap bracelet – Ferragamo. This matches the scarf’s contrast hem.
- Silk scarf, 90cm, in mauve, violet, blue and yellow – Jaguar Quetzal – Hermès. I folded the scarf into a triangle then rolled it to show off the gorgeous denim blue contrast hem. It was secured with a purple lacquered horn anneau infinity scarf ring from MaiTai.
To complete my “explosion” of purple shades, I carried my lovely amethyst pebbled leather Victoria handbag by Massaccesi. I had intended to wear my new Hotter trainer shoes in polar white (a very pale greyish mauve), but it was drizzling, so I changed them for navy shoes instead.
I was very tired when we arrived back home, probably from all of the walking around the car park and hospital, so have been in bed since, but I am determined to do some exercise tomorrow. I will let you all know how that goes.
