So ..... I’ve been stuck inside at home for a month having a bit of a pooey time post surgery!
But The end of this week I did all I could to fill the energy cup up , got thrown on a plane, fell out of my chair on the airport tarmac and BOOM I’m in Darwin!
Today , with a couple of good mates we had a yarn to a room full of professionals about a few hot topics!
I met @dylanalcott and forgot how to speak ‘what a legend’! #fangirl
Now Ill have a beer in bed because #1 I’m buggered, #2 Darwin’s a sauna, #3 my energy cup wasn’t as full as I thought.

Even in your darkness there is always something spectacular taking place!
I got shit on my head yesterday while I was asleep on a patch of grass, apparently it’s supposed to be good luck , so I guess that was my ‘spectacular’ .... and the rear end of this sunset , it was a bit alright too!

Never forget to take good care of yourself we only have one life!

Around this day 5 years ago , about 3 weeks before my accident I opened my first ever fortune cookie while having lunch with a friend.
I’m not usually a believer in that sort of thing but I can say I often think of this little piece of paper that come out of a not so delicious cookie especially when I feel I am struggling to move forward!
BUT....
I’m about to teach my little sister my wool handling ways from start to finish to help me get on top of a few orders.
I’ve been off the tools for nearly 3 weeks and it’s doing my head in so I’m creating a new method to put an end to that , wish me luck 🤔🙃✌🏼✅ ‘here’s to my first full day off the couch’ (hopefully).

I have officially reAched the top! 🤕🤢 Actually I’ve only made it as far as the couch , but I’m on my way Ha!!! ...
Thanx for all the well wishes, love & laughs.
I’ve been in my own little world these past 5 days, due to a few complications.
Currently waiting it out on the couch for a couple of days before heading back to Sydney.
Feel free to call or drop by, I’ll be lounge lizarding , trying not to fall off the Loo or attempting to get on it! 😕

Something tells me, I won’t be knitting today or tomorrow HA!
This morning my hand smelt like poop, this evening...... it smells worse HAHA! .
Just an update for ya’ll , had a few complications, surgery ended up going for an extra 3.5 hours (almost 8 total) , they snapped my fingers , and forgot to give me a manicure, I feel ripped off. 🤣
Bonus- I get to keep my finger nails for now!
I need a G & T , BAD!!!
Still not sure if this was the right decision but anyway it was this or lose it. .
Sorry to those of you I didn’t tell but should of told! #1 there’s more important things going on in the world then me harping on about all this #2 I didn’t want to & #3 because there was a high possibility that I’d chicken out and swan dive into the harbour this morning 🤣
I love you all! 😘
..
I’m having an out of body experience 🤣 I’ll take it all while they are offering 🤣🤣🤭🤯🤯 ..
I should mention this is not to regain movement, quite the opposite actually*
My finger nails had broke through my palm skin 😘 .
