I am so enjoying working on the Simply Blessed stitcheries, and my goal for the weekend is to finish the Nature block.
It has been a long autumn, and the blog has been badly neglected.
I have posted a lot on Instagram though, as I have been baking and cooking healthy, and
moved a lot of projects in small steps forward.
Instagram is more like sending a postcard - quick and easy. You can find me there by the name Hanne Schneider, or hannequilt.
Personal content alert - stop reading here, if you so prefer.
Health wise I have been a mess.
Living with spastic Cerebral Palsy for 54 years is taking a high toll.
I am taking the
needed more needed actions now and am in process of getting a wheel chair so I can still participate in the good events in life.
Over the last few years I have been moving from 1 walking cane, to 1 crutch, to 1 crutch + 1 ankle support brace, to 2 crutches + 2 support braces.
Not mentioning chronic joint and muscle inflammations, severe intestine palsies, asthma and chronic fatigue.
I will rather use my strength to do the things I love, like sewing, writing, occasional teaching, laughing with friends, loving with family, than to walk on my 2 feet all the time.
I hope I can get a wheel chair in a cool colour, like turquoise, pink or purple though, and I hope it does not take to long to get through the paper mill of bureaucracy of our national health care system!
I have been arguing long and hard whether to share this on my blog or not,
and I have found that this is as good a time as any,
and now it is out there - I am not sure if it is with a sigh of relief or not - yet!
I have been taking actions with a healthier diet and have lost over 35 lbs. over the last year.
I am pretty proud of that, as it has been without running around the block - "just" by doing (some rather big) changes in my diet.
It did not really cut my problems, but it has been good anyway.
On Monday I will start with a special class in water aerobics, warm water, and I am sure it will be a good addition to my already 2 days a week working out at gym + physiotherapy regime.
I am doing my best to be the best version of myself, most of the time!
I have been showered in love from some blog people who have missed me in blogland -
you know who you are!
<3 Love you too <3
