Getting back to normal
It's time to get back to blogging and catch up on what's been happening with my friends in the bloggisphere.
The doctor said John's surgery went well and he's been making a steady recovery. It's time for me to go back to work tomorrow and for life to get back to as close to normal as possible. The two weeks I had off work have flown by - admittedly the first few days were spent more at the hospital than at home. I had planned to catch up on lots of the cleaning and organising that I never seem to get to when I'm working and do lots of gardening. Well, I did some.....
It's been nice to just spend time at home with John and Missy - no rush or pressure. I've had a taste of what retirement would be like and I think I'm going to love it.
The garden is looking surprisingly good considering (thanks to my son).
Winter here means chilly mornings then beautiful sunny days. During Winter I usually don't see much of the garden. I leave early and by the time I'm home it's dark. Having time to sit and soak in the sunshine and just watch the garden grow has been a real luxury. John may have been the patient, but Missy and I sat around relaxing nearly as much.
