The Weekend Blog
26th July 2014
I promise to make this post cheerier than the last Weekend Blog. Promise.
The weather has been something quite special this week in Liverpool. We’ve been trying to make the most of it as much as we can by spending lots of time outside; even if it’s just popping to the shops in town.
On Monday I had an appointment with the physiotherapist. I’ve been given some exercise to do three times a day, and I have to follow these exercises with ice therapy, i.e. putting ice on my hip. I’m actually loving the ice therapy, as strange as it sounds. I bought a flexible ice pack from Poundland and I find that it really helps to sooth the pain I experience after physiotherapy. I have another appointment next week where I will be having an ultrasound of my hip.
On Wednesday, Tyrone and I met up with our friend Darren and I took a walk up to Everton Park. Everton Park is home to the Everton tower – the tower that is featured on the badge of Everton football club. The view of the city from the park is beautiful I’m starting to wish that I had taken my camera with me. Maybe next time. Until then, here’s some poor quality Instagram pictures:
(My flat is located somewhere among those tower blocks.)
On Thursday I had a day of appointments. First of all I had to go and see the disability support team at uni. Then I had an ergonomic assessment at home. I’m having a desk made specifically for me (I got to pick the colour and size) and a chair that will make my study area a lot more comfortable.
On Friday, Tyrone and I took the train to New Brighton; another seaside town in the Merseyside area. I finally got my chance to paddle in the sea (see picture) and I plan of sharing the photographs I took in another post next week.
Today, the giants are in town. It’s hard to explain what the giants are, so here is a link to a post which has pictures and a bit more information on the whole event. We are going to see the giants later this afternoon when they walk near to our flat. I’m going to try and get some photographs, but I know it will be a bit of a nightmare because it’s going to be so busy. The giants were also in town yesterday, and the queue to get into the train station to leave Liverpool was a one hour wait!
