I was so frustrated over the last week not being able to blog properly as well as having a sore ankle and sore face, that I had to go to our zen garden in the village to calm down and get some zen.

Is anyone else having issues with blogger?
I can't reply to comments.
I can't comment on my own post.
I can't delete spam comments.
Grrr frustrating
The format seems to have changed, the nav bar is different, there is no pencil icon for editing posts, there is no delete icon to remove unwanted posts??????

Recently I was admitted to hospital because the wound from a skin cancer incision had got infected. The wound had to be dressed every six hours and I had to take oral antibiotics. Although I was worried about the wound opening and not healing, I didn't feel sick enough to be in bed all day. I had books to read, iPad and puzzles and TV I was still bored stuck in a room all day. So each day after the wound had been dressed and I had my medication, I escaped from the ward and went for a walk around the streets.

  I came across the hospital chapel and went inside for some peace and quiet after the noisy ward.

Now I am home with my soul mate and feeling relieved that the germ has been eradicated but the wound is still trying to heal.

 The usual crowd was there, Bob, Chris, Mary, Helen, Ann, moi, Bill, George.

Ann arranged Birthday Bear's outfit including a pig for the Chinese Year of the Pig.

My Story Continued:

At Christmas time it is always nice to celebrate with family. So we used to travel to Sydney to be with my parents and Aunt. Sometimes they would come to Brisbane.
Before we left we visited Santa and spent the hot days in our pool.
 This year Sonya wasn't frightened of the man in a red suit and a big white beard.

 Carol and Sonya in their best dresses, which Grandma made.

Fun in the pool with dad.

Dinner time then to bed before we go to Sydney tomorrow to see Grandma and Granddad.
