Three reasons I'm blogging today

Three reasons I'm blogging today.
First, I've just had an operation on my hand and I can't do much else.
Second, we've got a new laptop (new to us anyway) and I wanted to add some of my favourite blogs onto it.
Third, I enjoy it.
As I can type with my left hand (and I'm getting better at using the mouse with it too), this is something I can do to keep busy. Is that reason four?
I haven't blogged or blog-hopped for some time and I'd forgotten how much fun it can be. I love this blog and this one. There are so many good bloggers around. Unfortunately, I'm not one of them! I'm a lazy blogger as you can see by how often I do it.
I read this on Pioneer Woman's blog and thought there were some pretty good tips for new/bad bloggers so maybe I'll try to follow some of the ideas. I don't have a sister, but I got a new Sister-in-law a few years ago and I love her like a sister so I'll pretend I'm talking to her when I'm blogging.
Today I'll talk about the hand. I've had arthritis in my hands for quite a few years, getting progressively worse and it finally reached the stage that the doctors decided to operate. A few days ago I went into hospital for a Trapeziectomy. A small bone was removed from the base of my thumb and a ligament was used to strengthen the joint. I will have my hand in plaster for about three weeks. As it's my right hand all sorts of things are difficult. I won't go into details, I'm sure you can imagine! Anyway, I'm twelve days into recovery and my hand is feeling better daily. I do have to remember not to use it though as it soon reminds my if I do too much. I will need the other hand doing later but then I'll be a new woman. Can't wait to get back to crafting.
Here's a card I made a while ago, it says Thank You for dropping by.
