My last post was in January 2017 just before we went up the coast. The holiday started out good, we had a few visitors and some lovely days, but by February when we (I mean John) were back painting the house, I got really sick. I had a blood test and my doctor ordered me home and into hospital. I have had Crohn’s disease for the last four years. Anyway, things went from bad to worse and I had an operation to remove my large bowel. I have started a new blog about this. You can find it here
The clothing challenge and declutter went quite well and I learned some new lessons although they now have to be modified. Unfortunately, my new physical appearance has made a huge difference in my clothing choices. I have donated or given away about 20 pairs of jeans that don’t make the cut over the stomach. I need really high waists or low rise. Six months ago there were hardly any high rise jeans around when I wanted them and now there are hardly any low rise. Anyway the high rise aren’t high enough. It is hard now every day on what to wear.
I will be concentrating on the bag lady blog from now on because it is my new normal. I understand that it is completely different to a ‘lifeabovetheliqourstore’ type of blog and I know that for most people, it will not resonate.
Thank you for reading.
