Suzanne T.'s Profile
- Someone somewhere is defo not liking me at the moment folks. :(
Hope you all don't mind, but my GS is typing this on here for me, as I've been stuck in bed for the past week with a trapped nerve in my shoulder and upper back.
The only way I can walk is to pull on the shoulder where the nerve is trapped, if I let go the pain is unbearable, and I double up. Not a pretty sight I can tell you.
OH took me to the A & E as the Surgery was closed, and they prescribed me some painkillers, but the tablets don't agree with me, so have had to leave those off and use ordinary Ibuprofen. Hope to get to see another Doctor soon. OH went out and bought me a pain relief machine, which is ok, but am a bit worried I may do more harm than good.
Well, at least I can say that my purse is all cleaned out and tidy, as this is my regular Sunday afternoon job. Have done this since having my bag stolen from me in town back in the early nineties. I thought I didn't have much in there, until the insurance guy wrote everything down, including the cost of replacing the bag and all of its contents at the time.
Try it with your own, you could be in for a surprise. You need to include absolutely everything, including what amount you have on any cards, small change, notes etc, even the price of a lipstick or hankie. It all adds up.
Take care everyone, missing you all more and more each day. April 6, 2012 at 20:31 UTC
- Firstly, ok, I now need a proverbialy 'kick' up the b** to get me motivated again. I can't remember the last time I have ever felt so lethargic as I do now.
So, I'll try again. :/
What are we doing, oh yes, looking at something to do with nature. Hmm, what did I pick up first? An orange, and as I stared at it, I thought to myself, "The skin of this orange looks like me after a bad day"....No positive vibes there then. :(
Then I looked out of the window at the sparrows happily hoping about, minding their own business gathering twigs and grass for nesting when all hell broke out, as two pigeons landed in the tree. Off I shot like a Jack Rabbit and made short work of their intrusion. Peace amongst the sparrows once more. OK, where is my quiet time then?
So, back inside, I looked about for something else, and there on the chair was my very elderly cat, fast asleep and obviously dreaming about something as her paws twitched and funny noises like a strangled snore left her face.
I have to admit that cats are a weakness of mine, and I adore them. I could have picked her up there and then for a cuddle, but what right have I to disturb her obviously pleasant dream?? So, I sat and just looked at her for a while. The next thing I knew, my husband was shaking me awake for a cup of tea.
Quiet my mind, I could have 'strangled' him, for I was so peaceful. It's an early night tonight folks.
Hope to be back again very soon in earnest. Many thanks for all the messages of encouragement, I will get there, I know I will, but right now I am back off to bed.
Hope you are all having a happy weekend and the world is being kind to each and every one of you.
Take care all with ((((((HUGS))))) all round. :) March 31, 2012 at 20:52 UTC

Good to see you back Suzanne, your posts are always entertaining reading. Hope you are soon back to tip top fitness.
- Thank-you so much to Barb for sending me encouragement to do this challenge.
I have not been on the site for quite a while due to illness, so this is really quite a fortuitous challenge for me to do.
Hoping to be back with you all soon.
Take care everyone, you have all been greatly missed. xx March 23, 2012 at 0:44 UTC

Thought it had been quiet! :) Only joking Suzanne, hope you pick up soon.
- So much to do.
So little time.
So had best jump to it.
And bring goals into line. :)
Setting small goals helps us all to reach an achievement. Each achievement reached raises the goal stakes.
Good luck everyone, reach for the stars as much as you can, and make yourself a galaxy. :) February 26, 2012 at 21:50 UTC
- Firstly a big thank-you to Jan for her encouragement. I did try earlier but the site was down, so here I am back again. lol
My first great love of sport was Netball, what a fabulous mind-bending, full bodied exercise it is. I was on the pitch to win and tried my hardest to encourage all other team members to think the same way, but somehow I think there have been too many decades that have gone by for me to take this up again.
So, the other option would be for me to return to line-dancing. Not exactly a sport, but definitely exercise. Exercise again of the body and of the mind, because unless you have done this you won't know how difficult it is to keep in 'line' with everyone and remember the steps as well.
I am pleased to say that I did at least gain my bronze, silver and gold medals for this activity, but do feel sad that when I moved districts I failed to pick it up again. A classic case of 'use it or lose it'
Maybe one day I will take it up once more, as I do still have all my dance steps and some full sheets of actual dances that we had to learn to compete for our medals.
It is great fun and very sociable, plus as an added bonus, if your partner doesn't want to do it, then that's ok, as line-dancing is done exactly as it sounds............in a line........no partner needed.
It has been a lovely sunny spring day today, I have a house full of daffodils, which is always a sign of spring and guaranteed to put a smile on my face.
Happy Sunday to you all. :-) ♥ ♥ ♥ February 25, 2012 at 22:04 UTC
