Hello again! I'm home and waiting for the kettle to boil. :-)
I was thinking (a rare event!!) and realised that it is a year ago to the day when I was discharged from hospital after my cardiac-which-turned-out-to-be-gallbladder scare. Since then there have been ups and downs, there've been family illnesses and heartbreaks but for me, despite the discomfort in the first part of the year, it's been a positive time. I am now minus a gall bladder and am five stone lighter, all but two or three pounds. I have a new collection of clothes and more or less a new life. I'm fitter, healthier and much more outgoing than I was.
Week by week you hardly notice it but taking the longer term can make you realise how much things have moved on.
Yesterday was very busy. I did washing, ironing, made meals for the freezer, did some sorting and tidying and generally kept active all day which, I hope, fingers crossed, will slightly compensate for the liquorice allsorts that kept jumping into my mouth. Oh, dear, never mind, at least I managed to say 'no' to the wine!
Today, now I am home, there's unpacking, putting away, a bit of washing, a dishwasher to empty and some planning before tuition. It is so nice to be home. It's my safespace, my comfort zone and, much as I love my parents and their lovely home, there really is no place like your own home, is there. I count my blessings every day.
Well, better get going . . . have a lovely day, one and all. xx
