An Update


This is by way of an clarification of why my blogging is now far more rare. It follows on from my earlier posts (see conclusion) about my significant osteoarthritis, ankle fusion surgery and the dying this summer of my mother.

Bottom line, I am now a Lot more mature than I was when I to start with begun this blog site

Previously this thirty day period I celebrated my 68th birthday – and I can no for a longer time child myself that I am a spring hen even if my facial area and chin(!) have absent back again to wanting like they did numerous decades ago!
An outing for a birthday deal with at Kew for my birthday

I am also possessing to function really challenging at the two:
  • work out for restoration from my surgical procedures
  • retaining fit to protect against (ideally) the osteoarthritis in equally my hips from receiving worse.
For that reason I’m now entirely committed to daily workout including a stroll which will take very a bit of time out of the day and helps make me come to feel fairly exhausted when I get back household. 
For the uninitiated:
My common day by day exercising now suggests that:
  • I can now carry my adhere somewhat than use it all the time. 
  • Plus stroll additional than I have been in a position to do for a pretty long time – so prolonged as I have frequent sit down breaks!
  • AND I can now stroll up and down slopes which I couldn’t do at all for a pretty appreciable size of time following medical procedures. I still have to stay away from sideways slopes which are unachievable with a rigid ankle!
But I even now will need a adhere for uneven surfaces and for getting up and down stairs.
Going for walks down a steep slope – bit by bit – at Kew!
Nonetheless I still go through from remaining Pretty stiff at periods and knowledge major equilibrium difficulties when at house. It is really very odd – going for walks now helps make me feel standard, whilst I in some cases battle to stroll at dwelling right after finding up from a seat!
Occasionally I can merge training with traveling to art exhibitions – and I anticipate to be doing a lot more of this about the winter season as the climate gets even worse. The pleasant detail about artwork galleries is they have seats!
Base line although – I’ve obtained significantly considerably less time for blogging.
It is a great discipline while as it will make me assume which is also great exercise for the brain – so I will not be offering up. 
Even so the minimized amount of blogging is possible to continue for the foreseeable foreseeable future
Predominantly mainly because you will find no possibility of my severe osteoarthritis likely away. But also for the reason that I want to get in shape for and then recuperate from my upcoming surgical procedures – which is a shoulder substitute (which I have required for the final 2 yrs!)
I now want to do the job out how I am going to blog whilst I invest 6 months with my arm in a sling and then a have entire bunch of new routines to understand and do in the course of restoration! 
I am pondering no matter whether I really should start off executing video clips or podcasts and speaking the phrases rather than composing them! Anybody with any recommendations – I’d like to listen to from you. (see contact me)
