First of all...

a big thank you for all the well wishes I've been receiving. It means a lot to me to know that I have so many friends who are sending me the good vibes.

The other thing I've been grateful for is to have had Mark staying with me until today. It was great to not have to worry about being on my feet to organise many simple things like dinner. But from tomorrow I'll have to organise my own coffee in the morning.

Another thing Mark has done for me was to turn me into an urban farmer. Yes, I've finally had the horrible plants that were outside my front door for all this time replaced with something that I can actually enjoy and care for. On the right I now have tomatoes and on the left I have a variety of sugar-snap peas. Mark, being a horticulturalist, has set this up ready for me to take over from today. Who knows, I may not even kill these and see some fruit appear in the future.

So an update on how I'm traveling:
I saw my surgeon today and he confirmed that I am healing well. He also confirmed that this is something that can't be rushed so I'm still off work and receiving daily visits by the nurse to redo my dressing. This will continue for at least the next week. But, I'm on my feet and shuffling around a lot more. I seriously can not wait to be back on my feet totally. I feel like such a sloth at the moment. I've realised that it's incredibly hard for someone like me to just stay put! I need activity, fresh air and sunshine to be truly happy. This really has been difficult. I also realised that I eat when I'm bored.

So once again, thanks for all the digital love and know that it has made me smile.

You make us smile so it's only fair that we repay the compliment when you are out of sorts.

Good to read that you are on the mend.

VERY good news Muz! Hope you can enjoy (as much as possible, given your situation) your rest, AND your tomatoes when they grow! :-)
