I am so happy to pop in again to share with you some photos... Han finally got around to taking some photos of the pool!
Here is the main pool area...
This is what it's pretty much like in the evening when we go, it's lovely! There are no children in in the evenings past 7pm... There is just the odd few people in sometimes popping in after work I guess? This was 10.30 pm I think...
Here I am in the water!! Just got down the steps, takes me ages as it really does hurt... But once in the water it's brilliant. You can just about see the smile on my face!
Here in the water bobbing about with a float.... Again smiling! Lol
It's so nice in the water, there is no pressure on my back and my knee is ok if I remember not to move it any direction other than straight! I understand this is not a 'flattering' photo!! But this is me! And by using the pool and doing even the little exercise I am doing now... It's a start... So don't look too closely!!
Then the best part! Han wheels me around the corner to the hot tub.... Oh it's lovely!! It's actually huge! I am only sat in one corner! I don't like the big bubbles, it's too much for me, so I sit in the one next to them (where I am) as the bubbles are much gentler. It's hot and so relaxing.
Opposite this hot tub there is a sauna and steam room... I have ventured into the sauna that is so nice, love it in there! But I have found by the time I get out of the hot tub I am very tired and have no energy so at the moment it's one or the other.
Hope you liked my 'pool' photos... I am really enjoying going, it's so tiring... I hope it gets easier soon.
As for other things....
Stitching, yes I am stitching! I assure you I am! I will have something to show you all very very soon, I promise! I am thrilled with it, I hop pe you all like it!! Eeeeeeeek!!
The weather here has been so warm, Han has been trying to get me out the house more, it's been brilliant but really tiring. Maybe I should schedule a rest day after a day out? I mean just getting dressed is a major effort and something I have not been used to doing for well over 12 months! I lived in PJ's whilst stuck in bed, I am not out of my bed, I am still spending all my time in it, it's my lower back pain that keeps me there. Sitting upright is still causing me a lot of pain, when I am out in my wheelchair I find I lean forward a lot to relieve pressure. My left knee is the un-repairable one and well yes it's painful most of the time.. Recently my right knee has been causing me pain too. I think it's due to moving more than I have been? Hey ho! Got to work through it.
Well I am going now as its late and I am really tired, the heat is zapping my energy.
Happy smiles to you all until I next pop in 😊😊
