>Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now

>Sums up the feeling.

I’m still off work with the knee injury making it impossible to get to/ from the office. Even walking to the newsagent up the road is painful. I can drive a little bit, but even that is not too good for my knee. So I’ve not done a lot of late.

I have been able to do some work at home, even though I’m signed off on the sick (dedication eh?) I managed to finish a report I’ve been working on today and tried to email it to the office, but the laptop won’t connect to the office system – grrr. No problem, I will ring work’s IT help desk. Well that was about 7 hours ago and I’m still waiting for them to sort the problem out. No problem, I will download it off the work laptop onto a memory stick and send it via my home PC. Oh dear, I can’t do that because of all the hysterics re data security meant they stopped us being able to use the USB port to download items.

Great, my last weeks work at home to finish this report on time seems to have been in vain as I can’t get it to work. To think I spent hours everyday working instead of watching Jeremy Kyle, Loose Women and CBBC.

I was supposed to be out for a drink tonight with some old workmates I’ve not seen in years, but I’ve had to cancel that as well. It would only make my knee worse to dance on tables stagger home off the last train. [I only inserted this in case my bosses ever happen to read this and thinks I’m skiving. If that’s what you think, then just remember I’m not cycling, and I’d happily be in at work if it meant I could get back on my bike].

I’m off to have an MRI scan on my knee on Thursday. Hopefully that will shed some light, so to speak, on the problem. I have to confess that I do not know what an MRI scan is actually. I have no idea when I get the results or indeed what the scan results are capable of showing. Time to check out NHS direct I think and see what it involves. The scan is at 07:20 in the morning, so that’s going to be an early start for me.

There must be a way I can get on my bike again soon. I’m more concerned at not cycling than anything else at present.
