UPDATE : 23 March 2020

A Note From Marie

To my fellow bloggers I am sending my first bulletin regarding my situation, health-wise.

I deeply appreciate the good wishes you have sent me and it is touching to know I'm not forgotten. I have had a very illness-free life so it was a surprise when I had a life-threatening medical emergency necessitating surgery followed by two months in hospital and another 4-5 months under the care of a hospital-in-the-home service. I am improving from day to day. I am pleased to report that I have regained strength in walking (now without aids) and I am becoming more independent and almost well enough to cope with living alone.

My daughter saved my life in so many ways. She refused to give up on me and she nagged and bullied (in the nicest possible way)and persuaded me to believe the fight was worth fighting. She lives in the same street only a minute or two away if help is needed.

My problems melt into insignificance with the pandemic now affecting the lives of every person living on the planet. I wish you all a safe journey through the mayhem of life changing rules and the attack on the economy.

A big thank you to all of you for your thoughtfulness and good wishes.

From Marie aka Ozstuff

Three Muses Challenge 31 - Something Old, Something New

Well it's the last challenge for 2009 here at the Muses. Thank you so much for supporting us over the last seven months, it's been a fantastic experience for Marie, Bev and myself, making so many new friends and seeing our little community grow and prosper.

We hope you will continue to visit and post your lovely work here and may we take this opportunity to wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2010.

So without further ado, here is a little inspiration for this week's theme of SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW. I can't wait to see what this theme will mean to you.
