*Down, up pedals, down, up, down.....

Yes, another day sitting on my bike pedalling away for 10 minutes but I swear the RPMs were a little faster! Then I faithfully did the other exercises as explained to me by the physio at the hospital. Its probably the first time that I have had the time and the patience to do as I'm told, when it comes to physio-prescribed exercises (tho' don't tell Craig!).

I had a surprise visit from Roy this morning, which was nice. I got to see his medals from the Olympic Dream 10km race which was on in Melbourne last Sunday. This year it was the Kerryn McCann medal.

Aside from that, I've not been up to much - there's been no further cruising of the Mall on crutches and that dress! (well, not since Sunday anyway but that was with my partner in crime). I've been eating healthily - lots of protein and omega 3s, drinking lots of water, and.......no chocolate. I think I'm paying for my chocolate (over) indulgence from last week! And playing with my iPhone - its the best little multifunctional toy er...um....phone..that I've had and I love it!

Uh oh, time to go, my favourite show is on - Masterchef! And they have to make Croquembouche (I have no idea how to spell it). Burnt fingers coming up for sure.

And ihatetoast - Team Edward, Team Jacob..meh...give me George Clooney any day!!!

*From the lyrics of the "The Pushbike Song" - a popular Australian song originally recorded by The Mixtures, a Melbourne band that formed in 1965. Written by brothers Idris and Evan Jones, "The Pushbike Song" was released in 1970 and reached the top-spot for two weeks in the Australian charts in March 1971. It also proved popular in the UK, reaching the number two spot on 16 January (beaten by George Harrison's My Sweet Lord), and number 31 in Canada. (Wikipedia)

I remember the Pushbike Song when it was first released. Must be getting old and slow. I watched Masterchef tonight, so who is going to win ? Fancy Miss Universe a bit to win, that ( can't say the word for that dessert let alone spell it) looked perfect. But being a sportsman, I pick Eammon, his knowledge of ingredients will make either " sink or swim".

Yep I remember it well. I was 13. I have a lot of CD's and one is..... The Mixtures Greatest Hits! There were only three. The others were "In The Summertime" and "Captain Zero".

Good to see you're maintaining a positive outlook. Keep up the good work!
