Visual Treats For You & For Me...

Hi Everyone, I'm back.......! I can't believe I haven't posted on my blog myself, since Mick's Birthday on 21st August. Thankfully, Ben was able to keep you and me updated.
It's six weeks today, that I had my Heart Surgery...

Firstly, I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that sent Get Well Wishes and Gifts and for the support you showed to Mick, Ben & Harry. I can't express my deepest gratitude, you all helped to get us through a very worrying and scary time in our lives. Your positive vibes and prayers certainly helped us all and are still helping in my long road to recovery. I have been working my way through the lists, that dear Nikki sent and hopefully you should have all received a personnel email from me. (Please check your spam folders). I'd also like to Thank Nikki for being such a wonderful caring friend, who took it upon herself to organise my wonderful surprises and who rings to make sure I'm OK. Your a very special person Nikki.. xxxx

I still can't sit at the computer for too long, especially without the help of super strength painkillers.
I'm off to the Doctors later this morning to get him to check my leg as its quite swollen and quite hot to the touch. My chest scar is healing really well, but I've had a few dissolving stitches removed, as they don't seem to dissolve in me!..Typical..

As for the visual treats. Mick took pictures of the Sunset we had a couple of nights ago. If you click on the photo's they will pop up bigger.

The other photo's show the visual treats I've had. Dear Jodi and Richard Creager, sent me a set of their wonderful DVDs on sculpting as a Get Well Gift and a wonderful letter. Let me say I have thoroughly enjoyed watching them all and I'm determined to have a go, when I feeling better. The DVDs are fun and very informative, Jodi and Richard, really explain everything and their attention to detail has to be seen to be believed. (I just loved the little voice in the background..LOL).
I also received a wonderful book from Dearest Rosanna, showing a Bird's Eye view over her wonderful City Genova, in Italy. Rosanna, also put in little arrow's showing me where her home is located and the real Casa Rossa.
It's a beautiful visual treat...
Thank you all..

Hi Debbie,
Wonderful to see back in Blogland and so good to hear you are on the mend. I remember back when I was working, patients complained most about the leg incisions. My Dad said it was the most annoying part of his recovery, so this is not unusual. Looking forward to seeing more of you here. What a lucky duck you are to get those Creager dvd's! ;-)

Beautiful sunset! But you know when the sky is this red it means there is a lot of methane in the air.
Sometimes when i look at our sunset in the winter our sky is deep red cause by the methane terminal a few miles away, but it truely makes it more beautiful.
Really glad the gifts all came together so easily and got to you safely. It was fantastic to see everyones beautiful minis and kind wishes.
The book from Rosanna is a lovely gift and very special to you.
Hope your leg is getting better too.
