Right so. Let’s do the checklist:

Pain: subsiding (but moving upwards towards my belly button).

Scar: impressive, by my standards.

inflammation: well it’s difficult to tell. Been off work, and on the couch with a packet of chocolate digestives for nearly four weeks. I may have a secondary infection, or I may have gained a kilogram in weight!

Assessment: 2 paracetamol, 2 Ibuprofen, apply cool gel and trainers as required. Go for a walk on the cycle path. Take phone.

And an observation: when the medicine label recommends “Avoid alcohol’, it’s the same as saying “Avoid motorway”.

For example, if I tell my son, “Do not touch those chocolate biscuits”, then we have reached an understanding.

If I tell him, “Son, avoid those chocolate biscuits”, that’s pretty much an open invitation to eat every single god-damned biscuit in the packet.

Running, rambling, cycling, swimming and scrambling to my heart's content. Happiest on a trail, with some jelly babies in my pocket.
