(Day 44) // 6th week – walks and soreness // 26th December 2020

Christmas has come and gone. It’s been a great time and an adventure for my feet. After my last appointment on the 18th, I grabbed my backpack and went down to the Isle of Wight to spend Christmas with my cousins (and it was a good thing I did, as London went into tier 4Continue reading “(Day 44) // 6th week – walks and soreness // 26th December 2020”

(Day 36) // 5th week appointment // 18th December 2020
