Day 24 bathing and sleeping

Archive, Arthritis, Health, Hips, Hypermobility, Hip replacement, SURGERY

It says day 24, but I actually accomplished this at day 21. It was pure heaven.

I had practised in the bath fully dressed, to ensure I could get in and out. I had my door open and husband nearby, so I also felt safe.

I held onto the side of the bath and lifted my operated leg over first, I then put the other leg in. Put my operated leg more diagonal, and gently lowered myself down. Perfect.

Added a candy cane #lush bubble bar. Then bath salts and used a bath scrub by #theorangetree I’m starting to feel a bit more ‘me’

Coupled with finally getting a decent sleeping position, I’m almost human again!! *Could of been a one or two night wonder*

I’ve tried to sleep on my side, but it’s too weird, too painful for me just yet. So I’m taking the stomach sleeping position for now. But even that isn’t infallible, I do periodically have to shift back to my back sadly.

Starting to think that side sleeping ain’t ever going to happen!

Still haven’t done any physio since my day out in Birmingham, I darent. The outer thigh is throbbing after walking a bit, or doing a chore. Either bursitis? If possible after having bursa removed back in 2006 and IT band lengthened. Or end of stem pain? Not sure what it is, but I’m not going to aggravate it further. Definitely feeling the one step forward two steps back recovery so far.

#lookfantasticbeautybox #LookFantastic it’s the Nov box and because I paid 3 monthly it’s my last one (I had previously thought it had stopped) it was a pleasant surprise to see it arrive.

Unusual box for me, it’s a @qvcbeauty #Tili box it came with an array of goodies such as a

#Tili leopard print headband, perfect for when you are applying masks,zlich make up or just to have your hair off your face in a cute stylish way.

#winkylux eyeshadow in Ursula and inky plum shadow with prismatic shimmer, so pigmented.

#sandandsky soon purifying pink clay mask, 4 in 1 clay mask takes the stress out if detoxing the skin.

#bod mermaid shimmer sorbet, party season is nearly here and what better way to get party ready than with a sparkle and shimmer, iridescent glow and holographic effects.

#antipodes worship serum, an organic nature conscious brand gives us a serum to fight the oxidative stress and environmental aggressors, it’s water based, to give your skin a new luminous lease of life.

#livingproof dry shampoo, a clean scented dry shampoo travel sized that will draw out oils, sweat and odour, leaving you feeling fresh. (Much needed after surgery, as washing hair will be a struggle)

#korres lavender blossom shower gel, a zen like scented lavender and citrus gel perfect after surgery too. I’ve always loved korres.

#pixi endless silky eye pen in black noir, a gel crayon that gives a jet black colour, that can be smudged or drawn into precision.

#caudalie vinosource moisturising sorbet, had this before and it’s perfect for dry thirsty skin, hydrating just when you need it most.

#shayandblue black tulip edp an absolute gorgeous velvety floral perfume, with notes that are rich and sensual. A perfume like no other!

#ciate liquid velvet lip in delight, a dusky nude. A light weight non drying to lips lipstick, infused with hyaluronic acid to keep lips hydrated and plump all day.

My review

I was seriously impressed with this box it’s a one off payment and it cost £20 and the contents are worth a lot more, they say £52 which I think is about right. Good deluxe or travel size, and I’m looking forward to trying them all out.

Totally bought as a hospital/surgery pick me up, as I spotted the dry shampoo, and shower gel, and perfume, those with the headband turned my head to buy. Everything else a bonus to me x
