This week I'm grateful for...

 
...time.



- Time to spend with family.  Seeing as I can't drive at the moment I have been relying quite strongly on my family to take me to appointments.  MR was doing it while he was home but he is back at work now so we can actually have some money coming in.  So my Dad and sister have been taking turns ferrying me about and staying overnight just in case.  Dad and I have been spending some father daughter Lego time, something we haven't done since I was about 12 perhaps? (My Dad is a HUGE Lego fan so we grew up with loads of it) We've begun working on his birthday present from 2 years ago, the Taj Mahal.


We're unfortunately stuck at this point because even though we've both searched through all the pieces twice, we can't find the piece we need.  The box says there is only one of that piece as well.  Sigh, I remember Lego building now... back to hunting.  Either way, it's been nice to spend a bit more time with family.
- Time to myself.  I'm slowly getting past the feelings of laziness at being home and off work for the past two and next two months.  So long as I am semi productive most days of each week I hope to escape the guilt of being home earning no money while MR busily works 13hr+ days.  Time to myself is lovely though.  Lots of reading, relaxing, napping and lots of creative crafting plans in the works...

- Time to heal.  I'm very grateful that I don't have to go back to work in a hurry and am able to give my body time to heal.  It's a slow process this scar healing but my doctor's are pleased with my progress and recover so far.  My weekly blood test and doctor's appointment have now been moved to fortnightly and my liver function tests are almost normal, hooray!


Happy 200 + 1-th gratefuls Maxabella!

Oh lego. I get so addicted to finishing it, and become quite obsessive!

Building the Taj Mahal with your dad is just wonderful! I mean, seriously, does it get any better than that? (I hope you find that @$#% piece!!)

Glad you are doing so well. It's been a big journey for you. x

That is good news about your tests! That is the only thing I hate about Lego as well.....and stepping on a bit in the dark :-)

Lego probably gets heaps of requests to replace that particular block, hehe! I hope your recovery goes well this week.

I love Lego, and there is always a piece missing or wrong It is the Lego Law!!!
