Boy, it's cold and windy today. I wonder why? Oh, yes, I'm in Wellington now, not Auckland. Today I decided to have a wallowing-in-my-own-misery day in bed. Because of my stupid sore heel. I won't be able to walk properly for months so people (and the doctor) tell me. I've gone to the chemist and bought the loads of the required gel heel-cups and foam pads and whatever. They don't seem to be making any difference.
To make matters worse, my car is in the garage for a couple of days having a makeover. And I'm the woman who always said I could make do easily without my car, that I'd take the bus everywhere. Huh, it would be a chore to hobble to the bus stop.
