Some days it just boils down to the downright basically of actual balance managing to stay upright or stay on a horse or a bike, now I’ve hopefully come a little bit further. Now I have to try and balance my work and private life. This would have come easier to me before the accidents now I have to make very conscious decisions.
Last week was the first time I got on a bike since 2012. I went uphill for 10km then downhill for 10km! There was a coffee break in between and it was fun! It was strange, but fun! I’m not sure I could go on my own as I’m not sure how I would react if something “happened”. A flat tyre or any other mishaps just don’t seam worth it on my own. Technically I feel stronger on my right side. I don’t want to let go of the right hand. It’s also very hard to work standing up. I don’t have that problem on the horses so not really sure if with more practice this will become easier?
I am now on my way to Austria watching my horses jumping at Magna Racino. It’s the first time for me. It looks incredible, and at the moment Vienna has 4 degrees warmer climate than Palma! Let’s hope horses will be ok as they are more used to rain and English winter weather!
I have continued my piano lessons! I am not sure I talked about it here, but I thought a couple of months ago that my left hand needed to practice her fine mobility. I have never played the piano. At least never long enough to learn notes! Now I can quite easily read “normal” notes, don’t get ahead of yourselves. There will be no Chopin played by me soon. The left ring finger has to learn to curl and take directions as a single finger and not a pair or a group… Long way to go, but an enjoyable one so far!
Keep smiling 🙂 sometimes you will find yourself surrounded by babies that don’t belong to you on a 3 hrs long flight and they are just bubbly and gorgeous!
