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 💜
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.
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

You need to take it easy. Your husband knows so just let him get on with it. And leave the laundry alone!
Okay, I shall try and behave ! 💜
Glad to see you’re “resting” NOT! tsk tsk. Take it slow, what’s the hurry?
We need you around and strong.
9 years! Wow sure beats my almost 3 💜🌹💜
Hi Jen, I am doing my best to behave. The hurry is I hate being inactive but I have no choice right now.
Yes nine years I can’t believe it ! 💜💜💜
Here’s a choice *smiles* RELAX! 😊💜 Easy for me to say.
I do my best 💜

I’m sorry for all this misery on you. This too shall pass. Use the time to meditate, paint rocks or some other ‘sit-down’ activity – read, knit, listen to audiobooks….
I am getting there and mostly being happy. Thank you for your kind words 💜💜💜
Willow, doctors orders, rest rest and rest some more. Congrats on 9 years, That is so impressive.
Thank you so much, I can’t believe it’s nine years myself. I am listening to drs orders… Honestly 💜💜
Good for you. I know it is easier said than done.
Thank you 💜💜
Thank you so much 💜💜
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.💜💜💜
You will get well fast. Rest and live a baby life and you will heal fast
Lol thank you 💜
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 💜 Thank you for your encouragement as always 😀💜. Keep well and safe 💜
Happy nine years of blogging, Willow. That is quite an accomplishment for sure!!
Thank you Mark 😊
Willow, I hope you continue to get stronger each day. It’s good to know your husband is so supportive. You look great in your photo!
Congrats on 9 years on WP. That means 9 for me too, come August. You were one of my first friends here. Where has the time gone?
Please take good care of yourself and get lots of rest. Sending love and lots of gentle hugs to you.
It’s amazing that we have known each other nearly nine years now, I am so glad I have met you. Your poetry and your comments are of great value to me.
I am very lucky my hubby is a great partner and very caring. It’s s slow job but I am moving in the right direction. Take care Betty and stay well 💜💜💜💜
Willow, I’m glad we met too! We have a lot in common, and I enjoy everything you write.
Happy you’re getting better day by day! You’re in my thoughts. ❤❤❤
Thank you Betty it’s been a joy to know you too, I have always loved your poetry too, it’s been nine years of great support and friendship 💜💜
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 💜Take care my friend and have a good Sunday too.💜
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! 💜🤗🌹🎶🎈
Hi yes let’s hope it’s a good one , I have a hospital appointment this morning so I am getting ready for it. It’s to check the drain .. I am doing my best to keep positive 😀, I hope you have a good day too 💜
I hope the check up was good. I will check in with you tomorrow. ❤
Look forward to that 💜
Sending hugs your way Willow ❤️💕❤️
Thank you Kat 💜💜
Happy belated blogaversary, Willow! Nine years–that’s amazing! ❤
Thank you Linda I can hardly believe it 💜
