Ok, so for about a month now I have had stiff hands and fingers from fluid retention, especially on first waking up in the morning. And I was hoping I had escaped the same happening to my legs and ankles ... but no. Have just taken my socks off and lo and behold, puffy legs and really pretty podgy feet! Am now putting them up in the hope it will help, but in the meantime I feel a bit like an inflatable Emmy.
Elle came round to pick up the cats, who were very sweet and clearly quite suspicious that the food and litter tray had been cleared away. I will miss them a lot, it has been lovely having them in the house.
