Ouchie, Docandie! That sounds painful. It really is amazing how important a part of the body the knee proves to be when it plays up. Toothy's right knee gives her a stabbing pain sometimes when she's climbing the stairs and she has to sidle up at a weird angle to stop it. She's been to the doctors who thought she'd done some cartilage damage, but she has no idea how or when. Of course the knee didnt oblige with any meaningful symptoms when confronted by a doctor.
He suggested Toothy take glucosamine (which are the size of horse pills!
) but she's not convinced they're doing much. Another doctor visit beckons.
Mr Totty and Toothy went to visit Elder Toothlet at uni yesterday. It was a good excuse to feed up said student, although she does eat sensibly normally - just as well, given she's studying nutrition and food science! Lunch was at Jamie Oliver's Italian and was wonderful. Toothy had king prawn linguine and a Gorgonzola, pear and walnut salad, followed by an Amalfi lemon slice with pistachios. Nomnomnom. After lots of heavy duty shopping, the others were hungry again. Toothy could've waited a few more hours! But...they all descended on Cote, a very good French-style restaurant, where more delicious food was consumed. Toothy had to go for a chicken and avocado salad and forego pud as she was just too full. She finished with fresh mint tea instead. The other two had 2 courses each, involving duck with cherry sauce, steak, creme brûlée and chocolate melt. No wonder said student wanted a parental visit.
And today? Well, it's raining and windy (no, the latter doesn't refer to Toothy...amazingly enough!). The outlaws are coming over and there's some singing to be done at a Mayoral service thing. Otherwise, a relaxing day.
