    :)Do take time to get out and stretch, and take care not to overdo too much.
    Two months out is still early days.
    Got to say long car rides were not my favorite...hope you have some ice to go!

    We have the 'hinterland' here in Portugal too. My avatar is Galé Beach. We are 20 minutes from the coast going into the hills (hinterland). Definition by Oxford Dictionary ...

    hin·ter·land
    noun

    • 1. the often uncharted areas beyond a coastal district or a river's banks: "early settlers were driven from the coastal areas into the hinterland"
    • ▪ an area surrounding a town or port and served by it: "the city had grown prosperous by exploiting its local western hinterland"
    • 2. an area lying beyond what is visible or known: "in the hinterland of his mind these things rose, dark and ominous"
    Word Origin late 19th century: from German, from hinter ‘behind’ + Land ‘land’.

    Hubby and brother-in-law (visiting from Oldenburg, Germany) have gone out to get KFC for lunch. Yum.

    Be safe and have a lovely day. xx

    PS My BlnL goes to Holland (30 minutes from him) for excellent fish and chips.

    @Izabel
    Thanks for the definition... I thought it only applied to Germany! I love Portugal too.. often go on holiday... lovely people.

    KFC! Yummy.... do enjoy..

    Why is all the tasty food so fattening... not that you have to worry!!!

    Enjoy your day.

    Happy Tuesday! @Hoppy Nanny :wave:
    How fun traveling to see the grandkids. Stopping for coffee halfway through will most likely be a welcome break. Please let us know how the car trip and visit go.
    Congrats on the two mile walk. You're on your way! :walking:
    Safe travels today! :driver:

    I hope you have a fun day seeing your grandson and your daughter. A bit of stiffness will feel nothing compared to the happiness at seeing everyone and as you say things feeling more normal. :driver:

    Had a fabulous day... thanks for your comments everyone.. much appreciated...
    Stopped halfway for a coffee (sneaked in a chicken & chorizo pasty ) ... had no problems... a little stiff by the time we got home at 10pm but otherwise unscathed...

    Just waiting for my physio appointment at the hospital.. not going to do anything on the hip (it’s all too good) but might see if he can help my knee on other leg!!!

    Physio went well... He asked how hip was & how he could improve it & I said ‘ you cant’ so he left it alone.

    He thinks the gluteus maximus is what is causing the tight feeling
    on the other hip.. he said that it was taking all the pressure from the other hip & knee on that side before the op...gave me a band to put around the knee so I can stretch it.. seemed ok & could feel the pull... I will give it a go...

    Only one more visit & then I will be discharged ... yippee!
