I'm sure you have all heard of cankles (The area in affected female legs where the calf meets the foot in an abrupt, nontapering terminus), well I've gone one better, I have knakles, my ankles are so swollen they are almost the same diameter of my knees.
I slept last night from 7 pm until 5 am, despite this, by the end of today my ankles are very swollen. To make up for not working yesterday, I started work at 6:30 this morning & didn't leave until 4:15, I then collected dgd Norah and took her to gym club, she hasn't stayed the night as she has a nasty cough & wanted to sleep at home tonight.
I've been home since 6 & have my feet elevated. They will be better in the morning & a weekend of gentle pottering will keep the swelling down. This all goes to show that 63 is too old to go without sleep for 28 hours! 
I've spoken to DD Helen, she & the babies are doing well, we ae hoping to visit over the weekend, we just need to work out who is visiting when, so that everybody get a chance to see her.

From Margie in Toronto - just catching up with your posts Hester - congratulations on the safe arrival of the twins - they are both a good weight and I do love the names.

Now you need to look after yourself - have an easy weekend and take care of those cankles!
