What day is it Anyway? June 26th 2020.

Hello now why did I pick that song by James Blunt. Well it’s for the lines

“I put a smile on my face
To hide that I feel outta place
Should I give it all up?
I’m on the edge and letting go
After the highs you feel the lows
Should I give it all up?”


“Could you hold my hand?
‘Cause it’s getting dark
And I’m losing grip
On my heart
Could you lift me up
‘Cause I’m breaking down
And I need you here
With me now”

Yes I am feeling insecure, it’s the cholecystectomy bag, or is it the tube coming out of me. I don’t know really. I just don’t feel like me. Anyhow since I last wrote a post on the 16th June. I have been resting and recovering. I lost blood the first week and had to visit the hospital twice, the last time was Saturday 20th anyway things have settled since then. 🀞. My next appointment is this Monday, for a “drain check”.

So it’s been difficult to sleep, hubby being absolutely great doing most things and helping me. We are both still getting up at stupid o’clock. After four days I felt strong enough to get washed dressed and sit in the garden. I have progressed to folding laundry, and I am walking round the garden, getting stronger. I have had a sort of shower and washed my hair… Both endeavours, though on different days wore me out.😴

This is my view as I sit in the shade and read all your lovely posts. So there really is not much to tell because I really am not doing much. It has been great to read all your posts and news. I am waiting for my muse to return, she has cleared off and left me high and dry!

Then I got a lovely surprise, this afternoon WordPress sent me this lovely Surprise..

So Happy Anniversary to me πŸ’œ

So I amazed to see I have been blogging for 9 years. It been and gone in a flash!

So that’s it for now I need to conserve energy, for getting better and also for keeping a smile on my face and supporting hubby, who is “Chief cook and bottle washer” , dog walker on one hand and exectuter to his mum’s will on the other.He is working so hard so I want to support him all I can. I don’t want him worrying about me too much he has a lot to cope with right now. So I need to support him too.

That’s all for now Folks, and Thank You WordPress.

Stay calm and be sensible.

    You need to take it easy. Your husband knows so just let him get on with it. And leave the laundry alone!

    I’m sorry for all this misery on you. This too shall pass. Use the time to meditate, paint rocks or some other β€˜sit-down’ activity – read, knit, listen to audiobooks….

    Congrats on 9years of blogging what a milestone.

    I wish you a fast speedy recovery. I am sure all will settle fast. The body wants to heals so it will heal.

    I am sure you have done your research and have a list of questions to ask doctors.

    Can you eat Normal food? May be you need increase your iron, b vitamins, via food to help you recover, and magnesium rich food. Vitamin c, d. Also good. All via food, or if you can juice. Turmeric is good for healing. I hope they got to bottom of blood loss.

    Can you meditate? Relax? Just shine light on your body to heal it. I will send some light your way.

    I looked at the website, but I am sure you have too.https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/gallbladder-removal/recovery/

    You will make a speedy recovery. The body wants to heal it self

      The mile stone was amazing it has flown by. I have met so many wonderful people here on wordpress.
      I am getting used to the drain and bag, it has been almost a fortnight now so it will be in for another six weeks. Then the operation to remove the gall bladder will be discussed. I am on a low fat diet and eating lots of fruit and vegetables. Thank you for your advice I am grateful for any help . Be well and safe.πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

    Fold the laundry? Goodness me, stop!!! I doubt it will object! Good you’ve reached nine years. All that content. Maybe if you find the energy growing you should repost some material.

      Hi Geoff, the washing in this house gets quiet aggressive and shouts at me to sort it! I am doing my best to ignore it though!
      Where have those years gone, I have changed so much and grown in the process. Meeting such wonderful people along the way.
      I may reblog some of the early post though it’s a very hard to know what, some of early post are from dark times πŸ’œ Thank you for your encouragement as always πŸ˜€πŸ’œ. Keep well and safe πŸ’œ

    Beautiful music reflecting your life. Love your garden area.

    I feel so badly for you and your husband. This is a lot for both of you. I hope Immie is being good for you. We’ll need a report Monday to make sure.

    I’m glad you are taking good care of yourself and finding the smiles.

    Happy Anniversary! Wow! That’s amazing! I don’t think I’ve been on half that long and the first couple of years I did nothing. But it becomes habit forming. I’m glad I met you here.

    Hope Sunday is good for you.

      I find more and more that songs resonate how I feel at the moment. Feeling so useless dosen’t help but neither would self pity so on with the smile!
      Immie is uncomfortable but I think I have her measure now! We are lucky with the garden it’s not huge but big enough to enjoy and walk around.
      As to nine years…well it does not seem possible.
      I will let you know how Sunday goes πŸ’œTake care my friend and have a good Sunday too.πŸ’œ

        I love your positive attitude. I know it isn’t constant, that it is something to work at sometimes, but I bet that keeps you healthier than the pity that wants to take over. And who could blame you? Sorry I am just getting to this on your Monday. Nearly my Monday. Hope it is a good one for all of us! πŸ’œπŸ€—πŸŒΉπŸŽΆπŸŽˆ
