You win the Brownie Points. The newly Named donkey will go into the spare bedroom for visiting grandchildren.
Meanwhile: tomorrow I go to have my fitness for surgery checked. Just one slight worry. I was told today this involves putting me on a treadmill.
This raises a serious question. Can I use my crutches? If not then I can’t walk very fast, but with them I can usually beat most of the allegedly normal population.
Or maybe it will be just a static exercise bike, in which case I should be ok, as long as my right ankle doesn’t jam up.
It does say wear a tracksuit, but I don’t have one. I’ll just have to go wearing my usual scruffy.
This could be fun.
