It isn’t a matter of if you will experience a “Curve Ball” it is when it will occur. By the way, they never come at a convenient time!
For us, it happened when I finally released my head from the proverbial sand and acknowledged that I had to get a sore on my hand checked out.
It wasn’t healing.
After two biopsies it was diagnosed as being skin cancer. The Big C. Not a major and certainly not life-threatening it just needs to be dealt with so the medical establishment told me. So in between sorting out our apartment, buying furniture and emptying our storage unit, I have had a few trips to doctors and specialists. With a nod towards the other typical “things” in life.
From the beginning of December, I won’t have the use of my left hand for a week or two, if not longer, as it will be in a sling. So, for December, I will also not be tapping out a blog post. Unless, I get myself organised and get a few posts completed before the big day and after we are entirely shifted in, as my focus won’t be on moving and choosing what to sit on and lay our bods. On a few occasions this past week, I was starting to feel like Goldilocks, though porridge wasn’t involved just a wide range of beds and an assortment of furniture.
Fingers crossed we receive our new bed and entirely shifted in this weekend.
Getting back to all things blogging. What I can concentrate on is reading your blog posts and generally have my left-hand man, the Squire, to be just that, my left hand within reason.
Our change of plans in returning to Europe had to be replanned and which are now going to happen from April next year, instead of this month.
So apart from this glitch.
We are feeling positive about having to spend more time back in New Zealand. As the saying goes, there is always a positive to every negative. Then there is the bonus of enjoying and living in our new apartment straight away instead of waiting for a year.
Not forgetting the bonus of spending more time catching up with family and friends.
With future planned housesits next year to look forward to completing plus many more adventures in between.
So there ends the life of another curveball. It was caught and thrown back with much more energy and enthusiasm than when it was received.
