I just rediscovered my Strava account, from many moons ago!

My face is like 😁🤯🤪.

I’d forgotten about all of this… 2013 must have been when I began to seriously run again, after the 2010 marathon.

Gawaan!

That is SO my actual plan for my future right now… I’ll just relearn how to do it all again! 😁

I mean, my body is still saying “no, please… not yet!” But if you know me, you’ll know how flipping determined I am to do this!

I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m sure that I didn’t die from getting run over only through the fact that I was so fit and healthy from my half-marathon training in London. I was meant to do that on the Sunday…

The accident had happened on the Friday night… Get off me car! 🤬

🥳 ❤️

Yesterday, I had such a ride!

This is my guy!

It’s such a good ride, although I STILL don’t have the correct fixings for the computer that controls the motor, so is always just my leg power!

I’ve found and bought the computer, so I do now have one that I can use, but I need to buy the fixings to attach it…

Come on real-life, I see you coming back to me now…

It’s been a really long and painful journey, but oh man, I’m ready for ya’! 🥳

Am I 5 now?

I’ve just been compared to a 5 year old boy that’s been out to the park all day, and is now falling asleep in their food…

In the last hour, I’ve been walking around my kitchen table in my flat! 🤯

I did 7 laps on one controlled, easier by the lap, stroll!

I only used a single walking stick in my left hand, which was so incredibly satisfying! 🙃

This is the front door of my new house…

The work has now started on my new house. I believe the plan now is to tear it all out, and then start again…

Trimble out! 🥳

Who’s had trouble sleeping then?!

I just had the BEST sleep! So much so that I’m going to blog about it to share my amazement! 😁

I went to bed at 10ish, so I was in bed and trying to sleep by 10:30pm. I’ve just woken up at 6am, and I don’t really remember anything about the last 7.5 hours…

I’ve just had a real night asleep, and was just sleeping for all that time! That’s the first time that I’ve ever just slept, without any drugs to knock the hell out of me, in over half a decade! 🥳

I’m just going to blog the hell out of this, as this is so mind-blowingly awesome! 🤯

I’ve spent over half a decade not sleeping very well, AT ALL, but now I’m not in my bloody wheelchair ever (because of this lockdown…) I now can tire myself out by being so active with no drugs to help me sleep, I don’t even know what to do anymore! 😁

You know what? I’ll just try to sleep for another hour! 🤣 🥳

Edit: this morning I did my physio session with my teacher, and it was so flipping awesome!

I can now walk around my dining table without holding anything other than a walking stick! 😁👍

Amazingly awesome! 🥳

I now want to sleep all day haha…

More mini-wins?

Oh go on then!

I’ve now started being able to:

  1. Only use my walker whilst at home.
  2. Walk all the way across the garden outside, to the bench.
  3. Never using the portaloo at home.
  4. Getting out on my bike daily.
  5. Load the washing machine.
  6. Take out all the washed clothes from the washer and put on the airer.
  7. Do my own ironing.
  8. Do a fully alone night time routine!
  9. Fully making the bed, myself! 🥳
  10. I can now get out onto my bedroom balcony as well! 🤯
Just making the bed, FULLY!

I’ve always kindof made it myself, but I’ve never had the drive to stand and shake the “life” out of it! 😁*
