On Thursday afternoon they managed to get the gas leak sorted and turned me back on (oo-er) just in time for Ingi to arrive bearing flowers and cookies, and we had a lovely afternoon chatting about everything and nothing and drinking tea. It was *so* nice not to be on my own all day again.
And on Friday morning I finally managed to burn a CD without any errors and got the laptop booting the Ubuntu liveCD, so I could do a bit of work (just keeping an eye on the postmaster world and doing some daily routine things). Amusingly at much the same time they finally found and texted me the windows admin password, so I tried that as well, but couldn't get the wireless networking to work. Bah.
And we had steak and egg and chips and leeks for tea, and I got a lie in this morning, and Mike helped me wash my hair (bliss) and mum and dad are coming to visit later today and taking us out to lunch tomorrow. So all is much better than it was with no heating at Thursday lunchtime :)
I have my fracture clinic appointment on Monday, and we'll see then how long I can expect to still be hobbling about. Foot does still hurt some of the time, and I don't think I'd want to try walk on it without the splint yet, so it could be a while. But hey, I'm getting better at Guitar Hero in the meantime :)
I have some photos of me looking terribly silly over on Facebook (but public, so the link should work even if you don't have a Facebook account).
