ANNOUNCEMENT: AN UNFORSEEN 'BREAK' FROM BLOGGING


My apologies to all my blog friends for not 'visiting' your blogs in the past week or so and also for not updating my blog.

I have sprained my ankle badly and have to keep it elevated for a few days until the swelling goes down. Thank god I did not fracture or break any bones.

If just a sprain is causing this much trouble, imagine what a break would have caused!!! Just trying to type these few lines is causing me some discomfort and the very hot weather here (36 deg Celsius) is not helping my cause too! We are not happy, Jan.

Sorry...I am just feeling rather miserable at the moment.....Hope to be back on deck next week. Till then me maties.

Hi Vin,
What naughty thing have you been up to to make you sprained your ankle? ;-). But poor you though, it must be really painful! Like they say, RICE - rest, ice, compression and elevate. Hope you get better soon! Make sure Mr. G takes really good care of you okay :-)

Sorry for what has happened! Get Well Soon Dear!

Zue Murphy said...

I am sorry to hear about your injury. Get well soon my dear. I wish I could cook for you some chicken soup.

Usha said...

So sorry to hear about your injury, take care and get well soon :-)

Sorry to hear about your injury. Hope you are back on your feet soon.

Noor said...

I was away from months as well and was not able to view any of my friends blogs, I missed you all. I hope you did not forget me. Can not wait to try some more of your good recipes.

VG said...

Thank you so much to all of you for your 'get well soon' wishes. I am very, very touched, truly. My hugs and kisses to you all. You are true freinds.

LG - Naughty thing? I was only trying to do my job! I had gone for a meeting to the Dept of PM & Cabinet when on the way back, whilst walking on a gravel footpath, my foot twisted on some loose gravel...sob! Yes, I have had plenty of 'RICE' to last me a life time this week. What I need is real RICE, LOL....sick of eating Aussie food!!! PS: Yes Mr G has been wonderful.

Thank you Anu...on the mend now....very little swelling at the moment.

Thank you Zue....would love some chicken soup. Maybe with some crusty homemade bread rolls??? He! He! Orang dah pelawa chicken soup, karang nak mintak bread roll pulak, ish, kurang sopan! LOL...

Thank you Usha, Charming and Gert. I should be right in the next day or so.

BTW, how's Malaysia Gert? What have you eaten and bought so far??? If you have written to my work e-mail, I'll answer on Monday, okay?

As-salam mu-ai-lai-kum (hope I spelt this correctly, apologies if I didn't) Noor - welcome back. I have been wondering where you have been. Hope all is well now. Yes, I missed you....now I can get my fix of arabic cooking again.

VG, I e.mail you last week I think. You didn't get it? Must have went missing in the cyber world :)

Pureglutton said...

Oh dear... I hope u get well soon! It must be really frustrating but do take a good rest and be back on your feet soon!

Sayang Suhana said...

hey there darling....what happened?..oh well...a stupid question...whatever it is, only time will heal it...i broke my fibula ten years ago and was on crutches for six months...i know that feeling..but then again, feel blessed to have friends around the globe to lean against..have a graceful recovery and we'll be waiting..take care sweetheart...

Jun said...

OMG...Vin..what happened? sorry to hear 'bout ur ankle...u get well soon dear...

FAMILY FIRST said...

I was thinking to myself . how come VG does not visit my blog anymore .. did I say write something that hurt her . hope not. Now I know. Take good care, rest well and "see" you again soon!

Pushpa said...

Hope you have recovered, if not just take it as a much needed rest. Your dear hubby will handle the rest. He is sooooo capable. Since you are an ardent fan of novels, you can have the peace minus the pain and that can be fullfilling. Just want to give you some positive outlook. Do take care and waiting to read your writeups.

VG said...

Hi Chris, thank you. Unfortunately, other complications have occured. I'll put a post updating my 'condition' soon.

Thank you Ana. I am blessed to have such good friends around the globe, as you put it.

Thank you Jun. Hope to get well soon. I hate being 'bed ridden'.

Hi Jo...sorry for worrying you. Funny, I think the same thing too when my friends don't write or call me. I go through things in my head, thinking if I have offended anyone. Rest assured you haven't and I am the type of person that will 'confront' (in a nice way, of course..he!he!) people if something has annoyed or is worrying me. I value people's friendship too much lah...Once again, thank you for your concern.

Thank you Pushpa. Yes Mr G has been a gem. What would I do without him....

And you are right...I have been reading quite a bit and also been catching up on some movies. Looking forward to write them up soon. I am getting my daughter to type things up for me....she might as well make herself useful for mummy, eh?!

ummi said...

Hai Vin..Sorry coz I couldn't get thru your comment box to drop u a lines when using PC at my office, tried many times! Forgotten, when at home, so sorry..Only now I manage to come over again!

Feel so sorry to hear about your ankle..Is it still painful? Really hope you're getting much better right now! Surely, you've missed your kitchen as well..and me? Miss you so much dear!!! Take care and get well soonest!! (*kisses n hugs)
