Tumble

It's days like this I wish I had an amazing digital camera - it's frustrating to have such a spectacular sight before me and not be able to photograph it effectively with a point and shoot. The Red Checkers flew over Wellington this morning, and it was beautiful to watch.





I had tickets to go to the Ohakea Air Show with my parents over the weekend, but I was not at all up to it unfortunately, so it was nice to get a small taste of the aviation action today.

I am sorry that I haven't been posting anything on here. Over the past couple of weeks I've experienced a lot of back pain again. In addition to all the limitations that puts on me, it's really not doing anything to help my emotional/mental wellbeing. To be honest, I'm scared as hell.

I want to keep blogging, even through the difficult bits - especially through the difficult bits actually, it can be quite therapeutic. But I don't want to turn this into a pity party, because that wouldn't do you guys or myself any good. Perhaps measured honesty is the best way forward for now.

More as soon as I'm up to it... I have a lot of ideas, but not a lot of energy to carry them out at the minute.

With back pain, you are really lucky you decided not to go to Ohakea in the end... We spent an hour and a half to move 2km just south of Sanson...

I love your shots of this today! I wish I had known it was happening, so I could have been somewhere to see it! They flew over our place, but I didn't have my camera ready to capture them, mores the pity!

Hope you feel better soon. I know its nothing on your experience, but I remember when I put my back out a few years ago. A good 2 weeks of agony and having to have Mum shower me because I couldn't bend. Embarrassing!

Beautiful photos. This is your blog, and you can write whatever you like on it, even the bad bits. Don't think of it as a pity party, think of it as a place to offload :)

Even with a point and shoot - you still take better pictures than most people with a fancy SLR. Sorry to hear about your back pain!

What a bummer about your back pain... I really hope that things get better for you soon!
