Holiday has been extended.

Last week I left of a jet plane with my husband, parents and siblings to Bali. I went to Bali on my honey moon and loved it and convinced everyone to go there again.

70% of the Balinese people are Hindu with the rest made up of Christian and Muslim. There is something about bali that captures my soul. The daily offerings they do to give thanks for what they have is a reminder to me how thankful to God that I am not being! I get far to caught up in my own life and world that I often forget to give thanks to God for all he has given me. Like actually dedicate part of your day every day to give thanks!!! It's massive! I love learn about different cultures and religions. It helps me with my own faith- which can only be a good thing.

So the holiday.... Was going great until I slipped around the pool and badly twisted my ankle. Doctor came and saw me and said it was just a sprain, gave me a bandage and went on her way. My family encouraged me to walk on it and to keep moving. I hobbled along very slowly but managed to walk most places, went motor bike ridding and even buggy ridding through the rain forest. Walked through two international airports and once home sat down in an exhausted heap. When I woke the next day I was still in a lot of pain, took the day off work thinking it would heal. The next day- still not any better only worse, so hubby took me to the hospital. The nurses were in disbelief that I hadn't come in sooner, I had X-rays and turns out I have broken my ankle.!!!! They couldn't believe my pain threshold! Now I am the biggest sook of all, so I'm pretty impressed with myself. I am now laid up in bed on bed rest, unable to walk,drive, work or do anything really. It's really important to keep it elevated as its a major joint, if it doesn't heal properly I could have problems for the rest of my life. I was on the cusp of needing surgery, but they have put plaster on instead in hope that it heals enough!

Even though I had travel insurance it doesn't cover loss of income- so that is a hard pill to swallow- but gotta keep on pushing on!
