Busy Life

Alright...a weak excuse! 'We can all claim that one!' I hear you say.

The last few weeks I've been pre-occupied by school working late nights and weekends. I have missed the blogging and keeping contact with my old and new friends.

Although work has dominated my recent weeks I have had some interesting
titbits of worthy news that I want to share with you.

Had a visit a few days ago to hospital for an x ray. The hip bone has mended well, however I still have some pain due to the muscle tissues needing to be developed through inactivity.

I have continued my gym work using the exer-cycle, rowing machine and weights. I have enjoyed some good cycle rides but I'm limited to dry tracks as a precaution.

My youngest, Alice has been accepted for the army but missed out on the bomb disposal unit. Damn!!! She will begin as a trainee medic in early August and might be working closely with the bomb unit. A bad joke I think!

Alice had her School Ball last weekend and had a great time. An important night for her as her time at school ends.

Bianca celebrated her 10th birthday last night and we had a lovely meal at Fishermen's Table. Her favourite was Zombie Lego.

                                                         LET'S EAT

A bought job but Lea is baking a proper cake tonight

Will try and get some comments done for all you readers who have been neglected.

  2. I'm pleased things are going well for you, health-wise.

    Congrats to Alice. I hope she wasn't too disappointed about not getting on the bomb disposal unit. Training to be a medic is just as important though. Belated birthday greetings to Bianca.

  3. I am so glad to hear your hip bone has mended nicely. your muscles will give you less pain as time goes on. I know from experience.

    I'm sorry you are still having pain, but so glad you are able to ride again, even if only on the track. I just finished my first weeklong bike tour since I messed up last year, and I had pain the final day, but I did it! I hope your recovery is as successful!
