New year

Monday, May 07, 2012

I turned 39 yesterday.

But people who don't know that are always more than surprised.
They all think I'm between 28 and 32.
Hey, I ve got an eight year old. And I ve been to university. I worked. And my mum is now 68.

Now its nice that they guess me younger then I m but a couple of years ago, it was not so nice. Cause they underestimated me a LOT. Even at work I had to perform more and harder then the others, cause I simply looked so young.

Well, I can live with 32 ... ;)

All food prepared.

Vegetables, fruits, some cheese, pate for my lovely daughter, ham, greek and soya yoghurt, hardboiled eggs, a yummy quiche with salmon and green asparagus, a fluffy light cake and hubby makes some fresh squeezed orange juice.
Baguette and rye bread.

Something for everyone.

From my daughter I got a lovely birthday card and a salt stone for a candle - my parents gave me a voucher for a spa day!
Only my husband - well christmas and birthdays are always so unexpected dates. So nothing from him.

So yes, I'm a bit disappointed with him. Cause I think the last couple of years he always forgot my birthday. To his defense - he as well don't care about his birthday.

    Aww Bryan doesn't care about his birthday either which makes it harder when I get bummed that he doesn't make a big deal about mine. Sounds like you have a fantastic set up for today. Enjoy your spa day what fun! Have a great Birthday!

Today I will be busy.
I invited for Brunch tomorrow - so I have to send my hubby to the grocery shop.
And bake two cakes, a quiche, and make some salats ...

Well, it will be tricky to blend in my diet, but I m sure I will do it :)

Have a splendid weekend!

    Meddy - we live in a 3 generation house, so there are enough people to eat the left overs ... As most of the stuff I can not eat at all cause it will contain diary products - I will only make a bit for myself :)

For example ... I do not like filling pastry - so I'm safe ;)

    I would probably handle the making and the bruch - the leftovers would bring me down... good luck!

And now?

Friday, May 04, 2012

I ve been busy yesterday. As I am allowed to use only one aiding stick in the house, I was able to clean a bit. In the evening the knee was ... not really hurting, but I felt it.

But I ve been thinking since yesterday.
When I talked to the physiotherapist, I told her about one strange thing I ve got. there are a lot of trigger points at my body, always near the muscle/tender, who are very sensitive against pressure.
She asked me if I ever had been tested against fibromyralgia.


Today I ve googled a bit and well - I think I will ask my GP to refer me to a specialist.

It might be that she guessed right ...

    paskaline, I had a look at the trigger points and I can say: most of them ARE hurting me :( In June I'm going to make an appointment with my GP and discuss it with him.

My pains are better since I changed my diet, so I think I do not have to rush ...

    Oh man! My mom has fibromyalgia. I sincerely hope it's something less crappy!

First Physio

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Today I had my first physio therapy.

And the therapist was very pleased with my knee.
She showed me a couple of exercises - and relaxation stuff for the knee.

Horray, I'm allowed to use only one aiding stick in the house if I have to - like carrying a coffeepot ;)

(And my hunger yesterday .. I had smashing 1500 calories and felt great ;) Today I'm back to normal - hopefully)
