Share Your World – February 5, 2018

What would be your ideal fantasy way to spend Monday?

I just did it and it was not even fantasy. I laid around with my broken leg, had an after dinner golden oldie sleep and did not touch a hoover or mop all day. I cooked lunch and even enjoyed it with Mr. Swiss as apprentice, giving and fetching and fussing around. I even managed to have my hair washed, courtesy of help from Mr. Swiss. I tell you just break a leg and all doors are open, and watch it all happening.

What one person that you are out of contact with would you like to say thank you to?

Jason and Emily
Great grandmother Emily and Grandfather Jason Baldock. Married on christmas day because that was the only day in the year they had for a holiday. 16 children, my grandmother having 11 brothers and being the only girl, the other children died on the way.  Lived in the priest’s house at Sissinghurst castle where great grandfather Jason worked as a farm hand. Not really saying thankyou, but I would have loved to have known them.

List your favorite toys or games as a kid?

I would play cards a lot with my dad. He knew many games, and good ones. I wasn’t really a toy person.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I did not appreciate falling onto a hard wooden floor and breaking my femur and so I did not have a lot to smile about. Friday I was sent home with a selection of various pain killers and a new toy, my walking frame. It can only get better.

  1. I’m glad you are home and being cared for. I had to live on Garry’s cooking after the heart surgery and I wasn’t even able to tell him what to do. He did OK, all things considered. Simple, but edible. We are grateful for microwave veggies and things you can easily cook in a frying pan!

    I’m in the middle of trying to get through me set of books for judging and I have a couple of other regular books to review, too. I’ve totally run out of time, but you are important and I’m very glad to be able to chat with you 😀

    A walker is not elegant but it will keep you a bit safer and that has to matter at this point.

    • So far so good. I just have to make sure to take my tablets regularly as it makes a lot of difference in the pain scale I noticed. Just had a small catastrophe. My Acer could not be found by my computer and it was as if the computer was kaput. Suddenly it started up again, but no mouse, nothing. Eventually Mr. swiss connected a cable mouse and now it is working. I did not really have stress, but now I do. I have to get away from the computer- Mr. Swiss chose a nice elegant walker in shiny violet with all the trimmings. My biggest problem is standing up after sitting somewhere. I no longer have so much strength and Mr. Swiss has to hold the chair that it does not slip away. Enjoy the evening if possible, see you again tomorrow.


  2. I’m happy you are home. A hospital is not the place to try to get better. Here, they wake you up about every 4 hours to take your temperature and blood pressure and ask if you need anything. Yes, I need my sleep. Now go away! What is the need for blood pressure check when you are sleeping?!

    • Not only blood pressure, but temperature as well. They checked my blood sugar three times a day and you get a blood thinning injection as well, not to mention the collection of tablets to take, which are on the size limit to swallow and too hard to bite.


  3. So sorry you’ve had an accident! Not great to break a leg when you’re at that golden age! I do hope it heals quickly. In the meantime – take it easy and let others do for you.
