Still Plastered!

Just a quick update to say Phil is still in plaster after breaking his ankle on Xmas Day.  It’s now six weeks since he did it and we are now trying to get an x-ray done to see if it’s healed enough to take the plaster off.  I took a trip to the medical centre last week and got a form to fill in and off we went this morning armed with all the necessary paperwork only to find the centre closed!  Not just us though another lady there also wondering what was happening – she pondered and then suddenly remembered – it was local fiesta time so everywhere was closed!  Typical I muttered and she smiled an understanding smile.  So we’re back there tomorrow but before we left I popped next door to Emergencies and asked if the medical centre would be open tomorrow for definate and I was assured it would be – however being a distrusting sole I’ve now found the phone number and will ring up in the morning before we set off to make sure!  If it’s closed then it looks like another trip on Monday.  At this rate it’ll be Easter before the plaster comes off (either that or Phil’ll just take it off himself!).

Work on the street at the side of our house is nearly complete and it’s looking very nice.  Once it’s all finished I’ll post a couple of photos.  Must be one of the best streets in the village!!

Spring is on it’s way as almond blossom is everywhere around at the moment and it’s looking stunning and the air smells wonderful.  We’ve got lovely sunny weather at the moment but the temperatures are cold – perfect walking weather and to take in the stunning views.

Well that’s all for now – will keep you posted when Phil is released from his enforced holiday (it’s done his PS3 gaming the world of good – up to Level 28 on GT5, trouble is he’s getting bored and restless now and wants to get back to work!).

UPDATE:

Ankle still in the healing process and taking longer than anticipated.  Ended up at the Clinico in Granada last Monday after getting an x-ray done locally and seeing his ankle hasn’t healed yet.  After spending 5 hours at the clinico in Granada he had another plaster fitted and told to come back on 21st Feb for another assessment and to see if it’s getting any better.  They said it has started to heal but it taking longer than we anticipated (probably down to age!!!).  So Phil is still chained to the PS3 chomping at the bit to get back on 2 feet and start working again.

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to our satellite tv customers who have been very understanding and are willing to wait for us to do the work once Phil is healed – we greatly appreciate your support and it looks like we’ll have a busy time ahead of us.

Weather has turned wet this week but if the forecast is right by the weekend the sun should be shinning again!!  At least the campo will benefit from the rain and all my plants on the terrace which haven’t been watered for a while.

That’s all for now folks – keep you posted on the invalid!
