Back on track

I’m back on my feet and at work now. This weekend Liz came to stay, and went out for lunch on Saturday and to the London Aquarium on Sunday.

I’m a Free Man

At last, I’m free to go home, after nine days in hospital. Just as well, I feel like a pin-cushion, and the heating and hot water at home have packed up! Another week of antibiotics and I can finally celebrate New Year as well.

It’s Gonna Blow

I can’t hold it much longer! Apparently it’s not actually green, it’s orange plasma, trapped beneath a purple blister. I did some walking tonight. To the toilet and back. My toes still don’t reach the ground, so there’s still some swelling, but I’ve only got 9 more batches of antibiotics, and one more canula, to […]

New Landmass Detected – North of my Ankle

Something’s happening to my leg. I think a new landmass is developing. A bit like in Superman Returns. Apart from that, it’s beginning to get a little better, although I still can’t walk. My consultant told me I need to stay in until Sunday, which means I’ll have been in for eight days. By Sunday […]

Day Three, In Which My Leg Goes Black

My attractive leg has stabilised a little now, and has even started to get better – not that you’d say so if you saw it. Because people are back at work today, I was able to make some phone calls and get a bed at the London Bridge Hospital. Which is a hospital near our […]

Getting-Slightly-Bored New Year

Day three Well I’m still in Margate hospital, and my leg is still on the gammy side, so I’m starting to get rather bored now. The man in the bed next to mine managed to not shout Bert every thirty seconds all night, and also retained his dignity throughout, which was a big improvement on […]

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone. I’m writing this on my iPhone, from my bed at Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother hospital in Margate, where I’m beginning to go a little mad, and I haven’t been here 24 hours yet! I’ve got a cellulitis attack in my leg, which buggered New Year right up. Pip thinks it […]

The Rough Bounds Of Knoydart

Over May Bank Holiday, I walked around the Rough Bounds of Knoydart in the Western Highlands, with Ginny, Griff, Kitty and Swetty. The Knoydart Peninsula is the most isolated part of mainland Britain, and is only accessible by either driving 21 miles down Britain’s longest dead-end road then walking in for two days, or by […]

Marathon, and on, and on…

And now a short message for my sponsors – thank you very much! I hit my £1,500 target with £500 from Credit Suisse, £184 from a cake sale (thanks, bakers!), more from a work jeans day, and around £800 on the justgiving sites. In return I burnt 4,700 calories, lost 2cm in height, and ran […]

Run Ran

I finished my marathon, in 4h 31m 35s. It was hot hot hot! I was a little disappointed with my time – I was aiming for 4h 20m, but I knew it was a bad omen when I was overtaken by a yellow sperm after 15 minutes.

A few pictures then, and my results here. […]
