Day 5 – The cast comes off


Day 5 started slowly with household chores being done along with paperwork & banking which I was considerably behind on. I caught up quite quickly and was pleased to see that despite spending freely over the Christmas break we weren’t in too bad a shape.

Come midday it was time to take Katie to the hospital to have her cast taken off. Katie suffered a broken wrist before Christmas whilst in goal at a futsal (indoor soccer) game. It’s only taken 24 years of continual sport to have her first broken bone. Katie was looking forward to having the cast off.                                      Two hours later we finally got the all clear but the wrist was still quite sore and weak. I think Katie thought she was going to be straight back to normal and was disappointed it still hurt. My pictures today show the before and after cast removal. Onwards and upwards to restoring the wrist to its normal self.

We were starving by the time we left the hospital so once we returned home we had to eat. When we pulled up the driveway Andrew was there with the newly purchased second hand bike on the stand being cleaned and adjusted. He was proud of this acquisition and maintains it was the bargain of the century. Once he had done what he could with the bike he had to do a late delivery job with the help of Thomas.

Thomas was soccer training tonight so I decided that as Katie and I had eaten a late lunch I was not going to cook and suggested we go out to grab something which we did around 6.30pm.

On our return we all did seperate things, Katie watched another episode of the “Gilmour Girls” – she has watched almost every episode ever produced and can’t quite believe she was never exposed to the series from the onset. Andrew was trying to change the battery over in the road bikes computer and I took a call from my dad who is getting quite obsessed with his upcoming trip and the jobs he has to do whilst he is here in Australia.  Then……..after we watched The Heat thrash the Scorchers in the BBL we found time to watch the penultimate episode of The Tunnel, OMG, I was on the edge of my seat(well the floor actually), twists & turns we had to keep pausing it as it was getting quite complicated. I love it. Can’t wait for the conclusion. Hopefully we get the chance to see it tomorrow.
