Grandma to the rescue was last week ... this week it has been my turn ... although Grandma is managing her own problem or should I say still is !!
Ben with his broken foot stayed with me and on the final day he was here I lifted him into the car and PING goes a muscle in my back / shoulder and by Monday I am in acute pain, after blood tests ( previous Breast Cancer so they always check when I have anything wrong) X-rays and copious amounts of pulling about by Dr's and nurses and physios they have decided I have a trapped nerve in my shoulder area ... I can honestly say this is the first time ever that pain has reduced me to tears more than once in the week. ... so I am absent from blogging because I can not use my right hand with the mouse ( ouch !!) and using the internal mouse takes hours to write just a few words.
So I will be only reading every one's blogs for a bit longer.
Having Physio each day and doing the exercises as ordered to do ....so hopefully the release of the nerve will happen soon ... as my pain tolerance is getting low ... and am popping pills like they are going out of fashion.
Stay a while and browse I chat about all nature of things mainly quilting and embroidery,but also life around us the fields, the flowers and family
Copying things from my blog
I am quite happy for people to use anything that I publish on my blog, if you wish to copy that is just great by me, I would treat that as a compliment, if it goes to a good cause then that is a double bonus.
Me. I am 70 yrs young, I finally went to university when I was in my 40's and received my diploma the same year as my daughter received hers. So there was life in the old gal.
I have been a follower and followed my then husband around the world, he working and me..I had a wonderful time and would not have changed a thing the experiences are 100 fold, I really must get around to writing a book. We have lived in France, USA, UK, Spain, Kuwait, Jordan, Philippines, China, Bahrain, Dubai and NZ to name but a few.
My nomadic life began in 1977 when my then husband was offered a job in Kuwait / Dubai Our wanderings continued and finally we ended up again in Dubai in 2006/9.. 30yrs later, so life has been in a full circle.
Stitching and Quilting kept me sane in all these years and are now my best friends. 2013 now sees me at home in New Zealand with my children and grand children and my last move from these shores. Vacations apart of course.
