It Had To Be This Weekend…

All last week I’d been looking forward to Saturday night. Rob is away living it up in Adelaide so Rae and I were off to the footy to see my Tiger boys take on West Coast, their first game under the new coach. Rae and I haven’t been to the footy together since the twins came along so it was going to be a great night until I woke up on Saturday morning.


My first attack in two years and it had to be yesterday. The day was lost waiting for a doctor’s appointment and sitting around not walking while the medicine tried to calm the pain. I’m so disappointed we didn’t get to go, sure, we won, which is great but a night at the foot with Rae, that’s what the weekend was going to be all about.

The pain has subsided a bit today with thanks to the wonderful drugs but I’m still hobbling and have missed a family trip to Sovereign Hill. Rae and Zita have taken all of the kids and I’m at home feeling sorry for myself. What rotten timing.

Oh, and Go Tigers.

  1. Too much uric acid hey ..c5h4n4o3 ….. They say that cherries or cherry juice are an effective gout home treatment. Cherries, in all their forms have been found to prevent gout attacks and help alleviate inflammation during an attack. Can’t hurt to try, if not, red wine, white wine or pure blonde, all in very large amounts may leave you legless thus relieving all pain.
