Progress Report...

Thank you for all the prayers and good wishes.

I am in a lot less pain than I was two days ago. The painkillers are certainly doing their job, though I'm trying to find that happy medium between not being in too much pain and not being completely zonked. The temptation to do too much is also one to be resisted - I realise that I have to rest my leg, but, living alone means that I have to fend for myself to a certain extent. It's a bit of a balancing act (literally!)

Luckily this happened while I'm on school holidays - therefore my messed-up sleep pattern isn't too much of a problem. I do want to go to daily Mass, so I have the motivation to get up and dressed, but Mass isn't until 10am most weekdays, so no pressure!

In the meantime, when I'm not out of my skull, I can play around with the internet. I managed to set up a small webcam, and now have Skype. I don't make many international calls, and I rarely go over my "free" mobile call allowance, so the money-saving aspect of Skype isn't that useful. However, I do like the ability to see the person to whom I'm speaking, and the opportunity for a conference call has a certain appeal... online Skype blognic, anyone?

Hi Mac:

I used not to use Skype at all, until I found I had a friend in Austria I wanted to talk to and didn't want to pay anything for the calls. It's great!

Yes, Skype is very useful but I'm not so keen on the video calls, I prefer the good old-fashioned audio-only calls! It frightened the life out of me when I saw the Pater Familias larger than life on the screen! A bit like Big Brother!

I also find the Skype chat very useful as you can continue with whatever you're working on at the same time as having a conversation.
