This year I decided that I would have
a Valentine Tree!!
I was in hospital over Christmas so all my plans
of having special decorations
and a Christmas Tree
all went away
I was feeling rather blue until I suddenly thought....
"Why not have a Valentine Tree?"
I found a lovely pattern for
'Teeny Tiny Hearts'
at Attic 24
and I was off.....
I so enjoyed doing them
I think that, perhaps next year,
I'll do them in other colours as well!!
Life goes on much as always here.
I did actually drive a short journey
for the first time....
in several months.
It felt really strange ....... but good
as if I have a little more control over my life and don't always have to rely on others
(though, I hasten to add that they have all been wonderful)!!
My life is very narrow
compared to the way it used to be.....
but I am determined
that I will do more again this year.
My friends were wonderful last year
and came on very shortened walks with me so that I could enjoy our wonderful coast paths
I hope that
they will agree
to do the same this year!!
I also hope to be able to drive greater distances
and take my mother for a holiday.
It's always such fun going with her
as we have the same sense of humour
and each enjoys pointing things that catch our eyes!
As we are now well into the new year....
and I'm feeling a lot better
I intend to make a list
of those things I'd like to do.
I did that last year and learnt to crochet
started to blog and so have met all of you
my wonderful friends!
I have spent the last 5 years in and out of hospital
and have become able to do less
I have realised that
Life is not a dress rehearsal!!
This is all we get!!!
So I am going to take the little I can do
and do as much as I can with it!!
I don't want to look back with regrets
as I now regret the things
that I could have done when I was fit.......
What about you??......
Can I challenge you?
What would you like to do this year??.....
