Bit weary.On the 26th July 2011 i fell badly and although it was not very high, my feet were about 8 foot of the ground it was bad.
I ended up in surgery and had my right heel put back together using steel plates (titanium). For the next 13 weeks I was not allowed to put my foot on the floor. It's when I did put my foot down that I realised how bad the injury was.
Mick carried on working and I started to play golf. I limped round, the limping setting in just a little bit further along the golf course each week.
I have done a few days mostly half days, but this week I went back to work. It's been hard, even though Mick does the hard stuff. I remember when he came back after a bad injury, he was over weight and struggling. It can be a very physical.
Well it's Saturday night in Newcastle (well most places) Richard the golf partner is running late, he's still in Yorkshire. So he's picking me up at ten in a taxi.
It's not a problem, Newcastle does not really get going till ten. Everyone comes out late and goes home late.
Talking about kick off, after 3 games in the Premiership they broke off for International Week, but
now they are back. We play on Monday at 8pm.
Off for a shower, good night.
