Thank You

A big thank you to my many friends here and on Flickr for all your lovely sentiments and many good wishes in recent months.
After waiting since January to have a spine injection to relieve pain in my legs I had it yeserday! The long delay was the NHS waiting list and more weeks delay as I had Shingles badly.
Last night I slept well and, although mobility is not much improved - I knew it would not be, I feel very much better today, no leg pains and looking forward to taking up favourite hobbies, but I will have to watch tennis at Wimbledon until the end of next week (on TV!).
I have to go back to hospital next Wednesday for new investigations - hopefully problems will sort quickly this time.
I feel mean that I haven't commented individually on photos, lovely crafting, and so many good wishes for a long time - all the photostreams and blogs do so much for me, helping to raise my spirits on low days and providing enjoyment.
I hope to be more positive soon and contact many friends individually.
Again, many thanks.

Memories ....

"Awake, in the night,
Memories of happy days,
Float like drifting clouds."

For too many months I have had disturbed nights and have read many novels, browsed the internet, and spent hours remembering the many, many, happy days in my 76 years -I'll never be short of happy memories!

On Friday, at last, I'm having a spine injection which will hopefully give relief from pain, and I'll be able to sleep and dream about the happy days .....

June ....

June - soon half the year will be gone!
I'm much better from the dreaded Shingles but I'm not sleeping well, have too much pain, and still waiting for a spine injection - promised 'soon' in January, (NHS has funny ideas about time scales!!!)
Well, I now have a date, June 24th ....

This week I was more sorry for myself as PC Monitor had to go away for repair - but it's back today.

On 1st June our daughter bullied me to venture out and we came upon a poppy field - gorgeous, though I couldn't climb the fence to get close for photos.
Never mind, it cheered me lots and now I've got a few more pics in my flowers files,
