The last few weeks have been quite strange. I spent ten days in hospital following a fairly major (but planned) operation, and I have spent the same amount of time since then recovering at home. I had planned to read tons of books, organise my photos into albums, skype all my friends back in the UK, catch up on blogs and maybe even make a few posts in this time. Truthfully I haven’t had the energy to do anything other than sleep and watch endless tv shows and films. The days go by pretty quickly when going for a ten minute walk is a big deal… I’m finally starting to feel like my old self again, and getting much better every day – hence I’m back on here posting!
Before I went into hospital I made a point of spending some time at the beach, knowing it would be a while before I could dip my toes in the ocean. Also, this is only my second year in Australia and I still can’t believe that in mid winter I can wear short sleeves, roll up my jeans and walk in the surf. A-mazing.
I can’t wait to be back to normal in the next couple of months, and walk barefoot on the beach. These photos were taken a few weeks ago at the northern beaches in Sydney, yes, in the middle of winter!
