To be quite honest I am not enjoying being broken! I love my independence and having to ask for help is not something I like to do. I have kept going to work via Taxi paid for by ACC, other wise I would go stir crazy and things need to be done at work. There has been NO shopping trips or after work activities all week BOOHOO!!! But I have been lucky to have friends visiting me every day this week, so that has definitely lifted my spirits. I miss being in my garden and being able to jump in my car and just do things.
But once I mastered those bloody crutches I did make it out into the garden so that was a plus.
The weather has been fantastic, very Autumnal with cooler mornings and glorious days full of sunshine and happiness. My Gerberas are flowering!
Big and Toebee
stalk watch over me in the garden.
Chinese Anenomies are popping up everywhere
and searching for the sunshine.
The girls wait be the outside room door for me to feed them,
not an easy job to do on crutches.
They will not starve on my watch!!
My huge Blue Hydrangea is changing colours,
and looking no less beautiful.
I discovered toadies growing in a pot next to my pottery ones.
I think that is called companion planting!
The Walnuts are falling to the ground,
and so are the colourful leaves.
My friend Kerry visited with her photos of India to show me and she had bought me these gorgeous shoes while there. I can still wear one!!
I do have a book to read when I get beyond over doing nothing
but sit with my foot up!
OMG I even painted my nails!!
These beautiful Purple shoes arrived in the post, something I had bought off trade me before I broke my toes. Thankfully next Summer is only months away, quite a few but it will be back!!
Can you imagine my excitement when I got home from work on Friday and this knee scooter was waiting for me!!! Supermarket shopping next week will be a dream now. I was so excited I did laps in side the house, it is a wonder I did not crash, it is quite the zippy wee thing.
Yesterday was Saturday and TOF had a fishing trip booked which he went on. I mooched outside in the sunshine enjoying the garden. My dear son the Spare came and rescued me from my state of cabin fever and took me out for coffee and cake! Such an adorable son he is, I so needed an outing.
All these amazing things were happening this weekend and not one of them could I go to. These are the things I would normally just go to by myself.
The Spare declined the offer to attend with me which is understandable, I was only in need of a driver.
Next year I will be able to go, so I will have to make a note of them all for next years diary.
Sure I could have asked a friend but I didn't, weekends are precious to most people and time to do stuff with the family.
Maybe this afternoon once TOF has filleted all his fish from yesterdays fishing, he might take me around some of the Street Art.
Toebee was my source of entertainment outside. He loves to climb and still loves to ruff and tumble my hand. He was booked to be de sexed last Monday, but that has been put on hold.
My Hibiscus is still flowering.
The Hoya flowers appear to be crying.
Yes yesterday was definitely a good day to be outside,
oh and to wear flowers in my hair.
Some weren't as keen
Time for a Toebee overload as he is so cute.
The other day he was so tired after having a snack he only made it half way to his basket.
I put a basket on the table as every time I sit at my lap top at the table he joins me.
A basket seemed like a better idea than just snoozing on the table cloth. He can make the basket look inadequate size wise so today I am going to un earth some thing larger for him to use.
Life is so tough for such a small boy!
Far to cute!!
Even his tiny little teeth are cute!
I go to the Fracture clinic on Tuesday and I am hoping that all my behaving myself with keeping my foot in the moon shoe and keeping it elevated as much as possible will have helped the healing process. Fingers crossed the out come is all good news. Thank you to all of you who sent me kind messages, nice to know how much you all care.
I am trying to follow this one!!
Enjoy your life and take time to smell the roses,
marvel at Nature,
and be kind to yourself and others.
