therapy by the sea
Tue 28th, Jan, 2014
Just wanted to pop in here with a couple of pics from my phone this morning to say that we are healing though very tired. Many people have been in contact to say how the human body is pretty amazing, last year when we had an accident in Bali I experienced that first hand, this time was a whole different ball game and I was unsure of it, but again it’s amazing how things can slowly get better in a few weeks, day by day….
We are improving and slowly normal life is coming back in little dribs and drabs and the injury couldn’t be doing any better according to the surgeon. My heart is still ripped in two, will that ever change, I don’t think so, but we are now on a more even keel and regular things are happening again…learning to accept it all and the changes for the future…
I’ve found enjoyment in pottering here at home, making really homely meals and lots of healthy veggies and beans, I’ve been taking photos of them too and squirreling them away to one day maybe share, the penicillin chicken soup I’ve found myself making over the years when kiddos have been unwell has helped so very much – when the thought of anything to eat made me gag a bowl of this restored and recharged, pulling on my wellies and gardening has been good, when the house was very quiet the white paint was out, unbelievable but true and we’ve been ensconced in essential oil concoctions, taking photos of things I love has been therapy and long deep baths and foot massages have been a-plenty in this old cottage…
I’m not wanting to go out at all but thanks to a good friend and a little prompting I made it to the beach for a coffee this morning before another appointment with the surgeon this afternoon….
As I looked out to sea today sitting on the beach it’s a good feeling to know that this place they call Australia, this lovely land, this climate, the beauty of nature, whatever the circumstances, is now the place that we call home. If there’s anywhere to come home to, to recuperate, to recover, to take life on the chin, well, this is the place for me and I’m so grateful for that.
