We’re nearing the end of our holiday and I woke up feeling a bit less PoTSy and a bit less fatigued so we decided to venture out. We stopped at Broadford to visit the shop ‘Love from Skye’ an amazing jeweller (who also sells online) they have some really beautiful stuff and I’m seriously tempted…Continue reading Skye Holiday, Birds and a Sunset
I woke up feeling pretty rough this morning so today turned into a rest day. My pain and fatigue made my chances of achieving anything pretty slim so mum helped me set up camp just outside the garden wall so I could watch the birds in the rock pools. I did move as far as…Continue reading Rest day on Skye, wildlife photography
Today was too hot so we headed to the beach, after a quick visit to granny and a picnic I set about getting a photo of me doing something I’ve been working on for months. After a long hard journey I have finally achieved one of my final goals. I was discharged from Rehab in…Continue reading Rehab progress update, Beach Yoga

After getting Home from hospital in Tuesday and my epic walk back to the house u spent the rest of the day in bed. Wednesday started with a layin, I just couldn’t get going. I…Continue reading Home at last: settling in, physio, hair dye and mobility aids.
Jam on toast and lots of good luck and goodbye messages already 🙂 I’m certainly going to miss this lot! After getting myself up and dressed I made myself some earrings to go with my cotton cord necklace and bracelet set. After finishing that I started chasing down staff with my business cards in hand.…Continue reading 24th and last day in rehab.
Up bright and early this morning (with both shoulders and a hip out of joint! It’s really hard to pop a hip back in when you can’t feel anything besides pins and needles in either arm!) After yesterday’s emotional meltdown I was up ready for a fight this morning but my morning was a little…Continue reading 23rd day in rehab and my last full day! (wheelchair drama, walking for miles and surprise visits from friends)
Beautifully sunny day today but a brisk sea breeze. Up and dressed pretty early and I was laid on a yoga mat ready to watch the marathon. If they can run 26 miles I can do all of my physio! So after an hour or so of intermittent Physiotherapy I got myself back on the…Continue reading 22nd day in rehab (old deer, beads and yet more wheelchair woes and self-indulgent emotional ramblings)
I had a layin of a whole half an hour this morning before scrambled egg on toast and getting up and dressed. My back is definitely a lot better when I take diazepam at night so I think I might stick with that for a while. I spent most of the morning reading in bed…Continue reading 21st day in rehab (sneaky visit home to watch Grey's Anatomy, the GF Easter bunny)
