thank you

‘I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing
in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance
that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.’
–  Henry David Thoreau

Thank you so much to those of you who have emailed, called round, phoned and commented wishing me well. I’m now home from hospital, in good spirits and enjoying today and the time that is stretched out in front of me. Still dreaming about projects, making plans and looking forward to what will be a pain-free existence. I tend not to get too personal on my blog about my life but one day I will, at least, about a tiny part of it perhaps. Not today, but one day, when we can sit back, take stock and sigh contentedly. I think that day will be soon.

Until the next time – be well.

    Great news that you are home from hospital, sounding so cheerful and planning projects for when you’re up to it.
    Don’t rush into things – kick back and take one step at a time.

    Good to hear from you on my blog. So pleased to hear that you are alright and in one piece. I was talking to Louise about you the other day and wondering how you were.
    At least it is lovely and warm over there now and not fricking freezing like here (of course I love the snow so won’t protest to much).
    Lots of love my friend and sending lots of strong energy so that you just get better and better.

    Maybe see you over here sometime 🙂

  13. Hi Al, so glad to hear you are home and doing well but just want to add that I did not receive my email from Greg…Did he forget to put me on the list? I look so forward to hearing from you whever you can. Thinking of you…love, kelly

  14. Rest and be gentle with yourself.
