Hello! I’m back! How are you all? I’ve missed you and this space.
Well, my return here took much longer than I had anticipated/hoped/realised/intended. Last time I was here we were at the start of Lockdown #4 and here we are in the middle of Lockdown #6 and for Melbournians today is the 200th day of Lockdown since the beginning of 2020. Not a milestone we would want, but, unfortunately, a necessary one.
My wrist has taken a lot longer to come good than first thought. Several x-ray’s, bandages, two different types of brace, a pressure bandage and an MRI later, it has been determined that I had severely bruised the end of my radius (who knew you could bruise bone??) but with on-going pain my Physio suggested a trip to a Hand Therapist. I saw Emmeline yesterday, going in down in the dumps and coming out on cloud 9! Emmeline was able to assure me that there is no structural damage and the pain I’m feeling is from incorrect nerve messages to my brain (yes, I do have one!). While the pain is real, the messaging needs to be corrected and so I’ve been given exercises to do and in the meantime……..I can do anything!!!! I actually came home and cooked omelette for our lunch….and enjoyed doing it.
I’ve found these last 3 Lockdowns quite tedious as I haven’t been able to do what I want – namely lots of sewing – and I really don’t know how people without a hobby, like ours, cope and keep sane.
I’ve watched lots of tv and did have a “Harry Potter” marathon one dark, rainy, cold weekend which is, in my opinion, the Only Time to watch these movies (the bird is a tribute to Hedwig)
and at the beginning of Lockdown 6 The Golfer brought home these gifts in an attempt to pacify me!
He’s a keeper! I was actually quite shocked when we went into this last lockdown not having seen it coming at all, or maybe I was in a state of denial.
We’ve had more sunshine of late which always lifts the spirits, so I’ll leave you for now with some signs of Spring in the neighbourhood.
I’m off to put a new blade in my rotary cutter and, very carefully, see if I can rotary cut. Look out!
