Good Morning 2019

Door Christmas decoration 25.12 (1)

Well I got there and arrived in 2019, although sometimes it looked a little doubtful. It began 2018 at the end of January with a broken thigh bone in hospital and now it seems to just be a thing of the past. My leg is still attached, and I have absolutely no painful reminders.  I managed to have two rescue sessions from the ambulance to pick me up from the floor at home where I had fallen and could not longer stand up on my own steam and the grand finale was being rescued from my bath, where my seat no longer held me. On that occasion the hospital found that it was jus a minor thing and sent two police to lift me out of the bath – how embarrassing. At the last moment I put on my nightdress to preserve a little decency.

I had to find a good cleaning lady for a few things at home, bathroom, shower and kitchen, as I could no longer manage it. I was lucky and Lucia has almost become part of the family with her weekly visits. She does more than clean, but helps in other situations as well.

I discovered that wheelies with my chair were excellent for taking photos and I did my first visit of many to town with it. I was a little apprehensive at first, but now it is part of the fun. I have to rely more and more on my walker, but you just get used to it.

Mr. Swiss is no longer as fit as he was and cannot manage long walking trips. He also has a wheelchair at home to make it a little easier. He came with me on shopping trips and helped, but that is also now a thing of the past. I now go alone to the stores and who would have thought that I have again become a regular car driver and even enjoying it. Unfortunately I no longer have so much time for my photo safaris, but still manage at least once a week.

And that is my life as I enter 2019. Yesterday I head the explosions of the fireworks from my bed as I was already falling asleep. In the years gone by I might have watched the fireworks from the window with a glass of bubbly and toasted the New Year in with Mr. Swiss, but we were both hugging the bed already yesterday.

And now I wish everyone a bloggy New Year, enjoy and make the most of it. As I get older I definitely make an effort to do it. A happy New Year to all that accompany me daily on my Good Morning rambles, and may there be many more this year.

  3. Best wishes to you and Mr A-S, for a bright and healthy 2019. Keep up the blogging; you give us such wonderful photos every morning. We have started the new year with freezing snow here in Albuquerque and the sun has not been able to melt it away as usual. We’ll hope for good snow melt in the Spring which the country sorely needs. We golden oldies are grateful for a warm house and well stocked cupboards so can hunker down and don’t need to go outside. Warm greetings to you and yours.

    • Thankyou for your good wishes and the same to you and I am glad to like to see my posts, although I no longer have such good opportunities for photos, my married life needs me more for assitance now. Our snow is missing, just cold and now and again some rain. The snow is all up in the mountains at the moment.
