OK, I admit defeat (Robin Hood spoilers included)

Whatever has gone wrong with my shoulder obviously needs looking at by a doctor, I admit it. The dratted thing went out again yesterday morning at around 10.45am (I know because that’s when I left for church and it went from fine to ouch in the space of ten seconds) and it’s still very painful today. I’m managing it better this time – mobilisation and heat packs – so it’s not yet reached crippling stage, but it’s bloody painful and I definitely cannot drive now.

Bugger.

I’m also tired because there was no comfortable position to sleep in last night and therefore I haven’t had much sleep. As soon as the office opens, I’m calling to get an appointment with my doctor. I’ll work out how to get there when I have an appointment. She’ll probably tell me to see my specialist, but at least I’ll know whether it’s worth bothering the specialist then and she might be able to give me something to take the edge off and get some sleep when it goes out.

Hey, ho, live is always interesting with hypermobility!

The weekend was productive and fun, despite not getting to see my aunt on Saturday. The stuffed mushrooms need some experimentation to get them right, but I have a mushroom left over so I think that will be Wednesday’s supper πŸ™‚ I think a bit less cooking time and a bit more stilton might be the way to go. Adding a bit of sour cream to the juices that cook out an drizzling that over the mushrooms is definitely a fine plan. Recipe will be posted when I’ve got it right πŸ™‚

I got 2,000 words done on my current project, which makes me very happy, and there was also some rather excellent weekend TV.

I’m very much enjoying the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. I could listen to Jill Scott talk for hours πŸ™‚ It’s lovely gentle Sunday night viewing and the glimpse of an African nation that isn’t in the midst of war, famine and horror is lovely.

Robin Hood impressed me much more this week πŸ™‚ Tuck is still annoying, but he was on-screen less so that’s fine. And thankfully my first impression of Kate didn’t play out. She has the potential to be a very interesting character if she’s done right, although could someone please get her a better hair style? That braid across the front annoyed me all night.

Yeah, I’m shallow.

Robin is still surprising me by looking like a grown-up and being actually fairly convincing as angsty and tortured.

The best bit of the entire episode? The bit that had me laughing out loud? Hooting for joy?

Robin and Finn hang-gliding down from battlements πŸ™‚

I love my shiny silly show πŸ™‚

Also, there was Guy. The hair looked much less froofy this time, he’s getting the hang of angsty and tortured and he’s finally seen just how devious and evil the Sherrif is πŸ™‚ Vengeance! Vengeance will be his!

Maybe we’ll get an episode where Robin and Guy have to team up and defeat the Sherrif, sniping and being angry yet reluctantly doing the “the enemy of my enemy” thing. That could be filled with all kinds of fun and insanity πŸ™‚

I’m guessing that we’ll have at least one more Kate-centric episode to establish her, which is fine, although I am hoping that we get good episodes for other characters later. Can John please get a good plot of his own? And Much needs an episode that’s all about him and isn’t a comedy episode, because we know very little about him apart from the fact that he’s the comic relief.

Anyway, big improvement from last week and long may this continue πŸ™‚
