onwards and upwards

I have been bed-bound for 54 days now so it really is a wonder that it is has only just struck me that I ought to start writing in this blog again. Having said that, the first month at least is a real blur to me so I am guessing the maximum prescribed opiates were at work.

In the past seven weeks I have become acquainted with many television programmes and numerous iPhone apps but I am sad to say that I have lost any interest in attending to my horse, Cub (on 'MyHorse' .... I don't even like horses that much), and need something more meaningful to fill this frustrating void in my life.

Although I have managed to remain vaguely sane thanks to a wonderful support network of family and friends, I really miss being productive and the aforementioned painkillers are doing their best to reduce my concentration span so much so that I still find reading a chore. Irritating, especially with a degree to finish. The thing that worries me equally is that I find listening to music difficult's not right - I love music!!

So, rather than whine as I might have previously been inclined to do, I am going to try and document the little things that I encounter each day that make my day.

Without further ado, here is the first entry:

A lovely mug of Twinings Camomile, Honey & Vanilla with a shortbread biscuit, all courtesy of the Yates family. I have really been spoilt with all the get better wishes, hundreds of bunches of beautiful flowers and thoughtful cards. It all really means a lot! Thank you everyone xx

  2. Hello Beeta, I have found your blog via your Twitter post! I am going to write to you but I wanted to say thank you for your lovely card and bookmark, which I am assiduously using.
    I am so sorry you are having to go through this ordeal, I am thinking of you and glad to hear from Cathy that you were able to begin using your crutches the other day.
