Bouncing Back ...

(taken from the internet)

I have been thrown off
balance in the last few months ..
not just a broken ankle but
a few other emotional things to deal with.

I am not sure how long it is going
to take me to bounce back and be my
usual happy self again.

I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends,
your support has meant so much to me.

I received a beautiful bouquet from
Diane aka Trubes ..

My favourite flower too.

I was truly touched..

and Barbara sent me a lovely card too..

all on the same day .. It cheered me up so much.

I am truly grateful that all I have is a broken ankle ..
I know that I am on the mend .  ..

Emotions are tough to deal with!!!



  1. I know how you are struggling at the moment and my thoughts are with you. I am sure you will bounce back very soon. Chat soon. (The other) Diane xx

  2. So good to see you back here blogging again, Anne! It must be very frustrating for you at the moment, being laid up with that broken ankle. As you say, you will have to learn patience! That certainly wouldn't be easy for me, I must admit!! As well as your poor ankle, I do pray that the emotional side of things will get better soon as well. Thinking of you and sending hugs.

  3. Now that you're home and it's good weather (hopefully) you will feel better. Sit outside, foot up, and feel the sun and the breeze on you, watch out for butterflies and birds, and just rest. Thinking of you and wishing you well,


  4. you need time and relax! I hope everything will be fine again

  5. I really hate to hear that a broken ankle has slowed you down! Hope you can use this time for some refreshing and restoring down time to do all those things we "never get around to doing."

    Hope you're better soon!

  6. Hey Anne, the fressia are blooming, I hope they smell as good as they look, I know you are going through a very difficult time emotionally, but take your time, it is a great healer...Thinking of you...Di..xx

  7. WOW!
    I had the same mess with sciatica in Feb...immoblized and dependent.

    But the body has a wonderful way of mending and the time it takes forces you to rethink yr formerly casual ways indeed.
    get well soon Anne.
    I'm a believer in water exercise for swift recovery once you are able.
    But it's an ongoing process - keeping all the bits moving isn't it.
    Take care

  8. We are all here for you if you need us and are thinking of you and sending positive thoughts. I hope you are well on the mend and that you feel more yourself soon. We live so near that once you are feeling better and able to it would be great to meet up in a couple of months if you would like. x

  9. I hope you are up and about soon.

  10. Dear Anne,

    First off, it was my pleasure again for the card. D & I are thinking of you.
    Flowers were a lovely attention from Trube :)

    My inner feeling is that yes, you will bounce back. You will mend and grow. The thing is we never know how we will end up, except we become stronger.

    Hang in there, honey. xox

  11. Anne - Whenever these things happen, we sometimes just see the negative, but the world will become sunnier in just a bit and you've got to keep that in mind. I hope things get better really soon for you.

  12. Hi Anne,
    I just read this blog today. I'm sorry to hear about your struggles. Warm wishes is being sent from Ireland - Hugs!

    Enjoy your day!

  13. A little time off and a change of scence and I'm sure all will be well - and we will all be here when you get back,

  14. Oh, Anne, I'm so sorry. Thinking of you, xx

  15. Hi Anne, I'm glad your ankle is on the mend and you're slowly bouncing back. Yes, the emotional side of things is always tougher to deal with and always takes longer... Even if I don't visit as often as I'd like, my thoughts are with you :-) If you make it to London, you know I'm here xo

  16. Soon, you'll be jumping as high as the girls in your photo.
    Take care of yourself.
    Your Friend, m.

  17. Anne, I am happy to hear you are on the mend, both mood wise and as far as the ankle goes! I'm sending you lots of hugs and really really hope we'll get to meet in person one time... so get better soon!

  18. Hello,

    take care and enjoy some outdoor and some rest time..

  19. Hello Anne!
    Sorry to hear about your ankle! It is such a bummer to break a bone!!! The flowers that Diane sent were spectacular!

    Hope you are feeling better in every way today~


  20. Hope you are feeling much better!

  21. Anne, I think you need to take a trip to Italy, eat some good pasta and drink some very good wine.
    Actually, I hope by now you are feeling much better and having a very good summer.

  22. I hope your ankle is much better now!

  23. Hang in there, Anne! Hope the physical and emotional challenges aren't getting you down -- you will soon be dancing on the streets of Paris again :)
