When Life Throws You Lemons, Wear Them!!

When Life Throws You Lemons, Wear Them!! Happy Monday friends 🖐. How has your weekend been? I’ve been really dizzy last few days and really not feeling myself so it was lovely just chilling all weekend as it was my weekend off work.

I have had a nice few day away from posting on my blog too and have come back feeling more refreshed. Did you catch my updates about the blog hops?

When Life Throws You Lemons, Wear Them!!

Over the last few weeks I have had my share of up’s and downs!! When Life Throws You Lemons, Wear Them!!

Well it was going to be a good week last week. I had planned to start the week great and get fit again!

The sun was shining and I was feeling fit so popped my running clothes on and went for a run with Mollie. 🐶

Mollie is scared of other dogs so we took a short cut though the woods. The next thing I know I was falling to the floor like a ton of bricks.

My foot caught a branch when I was looking around for Mollie plus I’ve never been very good at falling!!

Ouch my knees and arm too the gravel well but my poor neck and back took a pounding. I stood up with bits of trees sticking out everywhere.

I then said to poor Mollie who was enjoying her run, come on Lou Lou ( my little nickname for her) it’s time to go home.

Then I hobbled down the street feeling sorry for myself!! I felt so achy all week then really dizzy towards the end of the week.

But now I am fully recovered and ready to try again 🙂 Hope you all had a better week than me 😁👍

When Life Throws You Lemons, Wear Them!!  The Weekly Link Up.

Today I am sharing a few photos from our walk around Newstead Abbey, in Nottinghamshire a few weeks ago. It is beautiful here and the sun was shining so a double bonus.

    what a great dress and so appropriate. I hope you really are feeling better, do not overdue it. Falls are more significant then we realize.

    Sad to see the other link ups go but completely understand.

      Thanks Jess. I am all good to go again now 🙂

    Oh no! I am sorry to hear about your fall but so glad that you are okay. And I am excited for your new weekly link up. That’s awesome that you have decided to do this. I can only imagine how tiring running 3 links up every week. I hope that you are able to get more time back. I love your lemon dress. It’s definitely very pretty and unique!
