Positivity

Standard

I do know that a good dose of positivity takes you a long way. I’m not saying it’s a “cure” but it helps you to manage what is going on in your life and max out the life you live. I have recently spent a huge amount of positivity pre and post op. Bilateral hip replacements. The look on everyone’s face when I say that I’ve had both hips replaced. The retort is always “Both?” “At the same time?” Well, ummm yes!

On the craft front I had lots of projects ready to complete or even start and what I Have I done? Very little! A small amount of knitting and a shed load of planning. I’m great at planning, dreaming and thinking. Maybe just maybe I’m turning the corner as today I went to Craft Group. I WALKED there and back! A bit of a mini marathon on the hip front but a move forward nerve the less.

I really enjoy my craft group who are supportive and inspiring so I came away ready to craft and complete Well we will see!

Day Sixteen

Standard

Today is day sixteen since I had my operation to replace both hips. All is good and I continue to progress with baby steps. I’m working on the principle that the slower I go the further I get. Each day I see some small improvement. Remember life is a Marathon not a sprint!

Room with a view!

Boredom is the main issue as I can’t seem to motivate myself to do any crafts. I have done a small amount of knitting but seem to have lost my Mojo so if you find it please return marked urgent!

I use an app called “Audible ” and on this I am listening to various books Even this seems lazy as someone else is reading the book to you! Still, I’m enjoying the luxury.

Positivity is definitely the name of the game . So watch this space and you might find I’m running that marathon!(maybe not!)

Hip Hip Hurray

Standard

I wasn’t going to write about this but it does help to share.

On Saturday I had a Bi lateral Hip Replacement. My mobility was dreadful and the pain very difficult. However the future is bright. I am now the bionic woman and recovering slowly. It is not common to have both hips done at once but I decided that it was a good plan because:-

  • One anaesthetic
  • One recovery time ( but protracted)
  • One worry pre op Because I would have had to have 2 separate operations
  • Able to return to normal life quicker
  • So here I am wrapped in a cocoon of care, recovering slowly but surely. I have decided that slowly but surely will get a much better outcome. I keep being told that it is a “marathon not a sprint” My approach is one of positivity. I know that thinking positively brings positive results! Watch this space.
  • I will keep you up to date
  • Life at sea with SAGA

    Standard

    Hi guys life on a cruise ship is never boring. (If it is it’s your fault) !

    Today is my first day of my first cruise with SAGA Ok the ship is full of golden oldies but what an enthusiastic lot! I’m not working and I am actually enjoying a holiday with Hubs and have the time to attend other activities!

    please note that this is NOT Hubs!

    Mr Motivator (AKA Derrick Evans) is a guest speaker on board!

    This is a gift for me as I prepare for bilateral hip replacements in a few weeks. Mr Motivator is certainly active, enthusiastic and positive! I’m also able to swim daily, well excercise my legs and hips! Just what the doctor ordered!

    No New Year’s Resolutions!

    Standard

    img_1009I don’t do New Years Resolutions! I rarely keep them and can’t see the point. However….

    THIS year I’m not going to start another craft project until I’ve finished at least one Work in Progress.

    In 2017 I will NOT add to my stash.

    Its a good time to start (another) diet.

    By the end of January I will sort out my wardrobe.

    This is the year that I will blog more, blog smarter and blog in a timely fashion

    will be am happy, eager to learn and indulge in positivity.

    I will practice acts of random kindness whenever possible.

    And finally ……I will NOT make any New Years Resolutions.
