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!
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!)
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:-
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
- 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
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!
I 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.
