I'm back!

November 16th, 2007 at 11:09 am

Wow, it's been 4 months since I last posted. I hadn't forgotten - I had to be hospitalized in July and it's been a slow recovery. I keep reminding myself of all the things I have to be grateful for, like all the wonderful medical care I am getting, paid for under our State system. And having a paid for house in these shaky times. I had to spend $1100 on doing some alterations, but still have over $3000 in bonds to fall back on if needed.

I haven't given up on returning to work eventually but for the moment I'm back on the sickness benefit and have very little spare cash so need to be extra diligent about where my money goes. I'm looking at having to sell this place and moving to an apartment in a couple years. Also since I'm not guaranteed a ripe old age, I'd love to take a trip to Britain next year and see ds and other relatives in England and Ireland. No one can predict what the future holds, but I'll make plans anyway!

    I've missed your Kiwi down-to-earth, authentic presence on this site, and am glad you haven't forgotten us. Your postings are always uplifting because you are a shining example of the perserverance and courage of the human spirit in the face of adversity.

    Glad you are recovering from your illness, and that you're making plans to visit your son in Pomland (England).

    Welcome back!
