Well, I started writing a blog post at 7.15 this morning, having slept for a couple of hours from midnight but then having been kept awake by serious pain in the legs… Various painkillers eased it to varying extents, but all in all it wasn’t the way I’d hoped to spend my last night in! When it was a bit less bad I managed to get some reading done, and my trusty iPod helped distract me, but I’m now exhausted, having only managed those couple of hours’ sleep in the end…

However, now the feet and knees are feeling better, the doctor isn’t worried about them (it may well be coming off the steroids that caused the problem), and I’m on my way home! It’s so exciting to be out, though it does seem to be a lifetime since I last was… Being very tired makes it that bit more surreal, but at least I’m not delusional now! I’m also aware that I can catch up on sleep much more comfortably and easily at home, so I’m not worried about missing out on it.

I’ll let you know when I’m comfortably ensconced at home – yay!
