Hello again everyone! I know your thinking ‘well, where have you been then’ as the blog was starting to do well and take off just before I started my hiatus. I am currently in recovery from a spinal fusion operation. Basically, as you could see from my Holiday Maxi Skirt post, I had scoliosis which in simple English means a curved spine. This meant the top half of my body leaned to the right meaning my organs (particularly my lungs) were becoming crushed, my left hip stuck out very prominently, my back muscles were overworked on the right but almost non existent on the left and I experienced frequent back pain. My surgeon has now screwed a metal rod alongside my spine meaning the curve has now been corrected and there is no chance of further bending.
I mainly did it to protect my future, I still want to be able to get about when I’m an old lady! However, now I have 3 months off work for recovery (full recovery being a whole year) I finally have some precious time to get back to the blog that I love. Also in my time off my nan has been teaching me to crochet so expect some great ideas and patterns to follow shortly. I want to start by thanking you all for continuing to read while I’ve been away.
