Get your thyroid checked!  Underactive thryroid can affect healing/recovery, particularly of tendons, ligaments etc.  

Speaking as someone who had a badly sprained ankle some time ago, which lasted for years, until the hypothyroid condition was treated.

Oh, for those who have family/friends returning from Reading/Leeds, can I claim kudos for my son who will be spending the night unloading, recording and putting into storage all the gear from Biffy Clyro's touring set.  The bottom having fallen out of the antiques market, he's returned to his previous career of sound engineer/roadie/etc and is spending the summer making sense of the contents of huge lorries full of musical instruments, electrical equipment and flying pigs (or similar - I'm probably showing my age).

Have been dining on Pasta Puttanesca on the terrace with OH - a bottle of rosé has been drunk, and he's been on beer   I've promised not to hit submit before he's seen the typing   ( i'm a bit squiffly )

Weve been playing the dinner party game - you know, who would you invite to eat and get drunk with and put the world to rights with ... well, alongside Stephen Fry (who is apparently on everyone;s list, but at least he lives just up the road from here) several of you made the cut
