The August Break 2011: #14, #15 & #16


- These are late, but there is a reason.

- This Saturday I was taken into hospital (long story short : Broken spine) and I have been unable to walk / sit / use much of my body at the moment.

- I have been prescribed a LOT of morphine, as well as various other drugs (I'm thinking of opening up a pharmacy, Hanna's Remedies!) I haven't really been functioning normally, and I have spent most of the time laid flat, not moving, waiting for my next round of drugs. It's not fun. . . . but today I was determined to move about a bit. . and have been slowly (read: VERY SLOWLY) walking.

- Imagine a heavily pregnant lady and how she walks, that's how I'm moving, but slower! I felt ridiculous but at least Im moving again!! hey ho! what can you do ey?!

-This rainbow was SO bright, I hate how you can never quite capture the magnificance of a rainbow, no matter how hard you try (well I can't anyway, and I don't get much practice on account of rainbows not being too frequent around these here parts!)


- A flock of birds sitting in the field near my house, it's magic when they all take off at once! ( do birds take off?! That makes them sound like a plane!)


-My bedroom window, this is what I have been staring at for a couple of days. As nice a window it is, it looked a lot prettier when it started to rain, yet you could still see the sun shining through.



  1. Hi Hanna!
    what a bummer! well... I can imagine how you must be feeling, but hey, you're walking, right? That's good news! :) Take it slowly, someone up there is forcing you to rest a bit from this wild life. So, go ahead and catch up some nice movies you haven't had chance to see, or a nice book... (when I'm in a bad mood I like to lay down and drool over a good recipe book with a cup of tea next to me) Oh, and you always have this amazing blog-world to keep in touch with life. Hope you recover fast. **

  2. I'm so sorry to hear that you broke your spine and are laid up and in such pain. I too hope you have a quick recovery. Your picture of your bedroom window is wonderful...magical in the moment of sunshine and raindrops. Thanks for sharing it. Blessings-

  3. Thankyou so much ladies, you made me smile after a rubbish couple of days, you're both so lovely!

    @Inês - Taking things slowly is so not me, but I'm kind of forced to at the moment, hence the agitation! I have been making pompoms (useless, but they are colourful hanging around my room!) and online shopping. . . ooohh I am the proud owner of some gorgeous vintage items, and my bank balance hates me!!!

    @Cheryl - Thankyou for you well wishes, it isn't the first time I've done it (sadly, it's an old injury that I've managed to re fracture) . . and it's killer, so debilitating! (I advise you to take my word for it, and not try it!) . . The weather was just so crazy I had to share! don't you find it odd when it both rains. . .and shines at the same time?!

  4. Better late than never. These photos are so gorgeous they were worth the wait!

    Lots of love from Sydney,

  6. Hope you're feeling better. Have a nice week. Wanna see those pompoms ;)

  7. I hope you will recover very soon.
    And you captured the rainbow quite well, the colors look bright.
    Take care, and rest, and drink a lot.

  8. Dear Hanna, I just passed you the "versatile blogger" award, you can check it here;

  9. Hello ladies, I haven't been able to be near a computer much thre last week, so I am sorry if I didn't reply to your comments, but I have been able to read them on a borrowed phone with internet access. They have honestly lifted my spirits so much.

    @Kel - 'better late than never' should be my catchphrase, superhero style! I'm always running late, but (I'd like to think) I'm worth the wait!

    @Serena - I'm doing OK, not better, but definitely not worse! thankyou so much.

    @Inês - you are soo lovely! and of course you will see them, I have a plan for them, a brilliant plan!

    @Amanda - Thankyou so much (for the award) that was so unexpected and so unbelieveably nice of you!, also thankyou for your comments on my pictures. . plus is it wrong that when you said 'drink a lot' my first thoughts were the pub?! haha I'm being careful I promise!

    os quiero mucho


Oh, heeyyyy!
go on . . leave a comment. . you know you want to! (and I want you to really!)
