My sunny garden this afternoon.
Thank you to everyone who got in touch asking if I was ok. There have been a few scary moments healthwise - such as the out of hours doctor's prescription which a Hughes patient should never ever have - can cause a major stroke - but I am still here to tell the tale - but boy did I feel poorly for a few weeks!
I stopped writing because I could not think of anything much to say. People who know me in real life will find this a bit weird that The Chatterbox should have nothing to say!
I feel that this time has been a time of growth and change. There was a lot of crafting and a lot of trying out new recipes. I read a lot and joined an online challenge to draw every day. I am useless at drawing and wanted to learn more. This challenge gives a list of what to draw each day. But you know me, I am useless at being told what to do - lol! So I got into the habit of searching online for stuff to draw and then each evening I settled down to draw what I had chosen.
My birthday came along as it is wont to do. I am now 51 and feel the best and the youngest I have felt in a long while!! (I am also 2 stones lighter!)
For my birthday Steve bought me a tablet which I am loving. On a bad day I can curl up on the sofa with my music, t'internet, books and blogs and I am very happy.
Thankfully there are now more - loads more, good days than bad and I am working for Steve and looking for teaching work.
Alex graduated with a 1st and the ceremony was in Bath Abbey. Of course my eyes brimmed with tears as I am a silly old fool!! We also had a week of celebrations as Alex turned 21 and different folk came to party but all at different times because of work commitments etc so the party just went on and on.
I learnt a lot this Summer - some of it a bit dreary - how to self inject medication - not nice, but necessary. But most of it was good and perhaps I can share this here in later posts.
My overwhelming feeling is that I am back - not just in Blogland but back in Life in General and that is a good feeling!
