If wearing a matching pair of flip flops wasn't exciting enough, I'm happy to report that I was able to drive to work for the first time in 2 months today.
I had a short trial drive last night with an emergency stop. There was no pain in my ankle so I made the decision there and then to start driving again.
I keep saying it, but it's amazing what you take for granted. Being able to drive again gives me my independence back and I'm now able to get to the pool when I want.
Thanks to Mrs Run Geordie Run for the many lifts here and there. I suppose apologies are also in order as I'm probably one of the worst back seat drivers ever!
