    I found a large part of the week becomes about nursing my aches and pains, and another large part becomes about how to carry on with everyday life. Today I was testing out my bicycle. I found I can scoot along for the first time, but also finally worked out if the physio can get my right knee working, I might be in with a good chance of riding the bicycle properly. Its taken a while to work out and I'm still not there yet but I think its going to happen.
