Hi, I am a professional nail tech that lives in the beautiful country of New Zealand. I also have CRPS -- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
I have a love for anything Kombi and love the beach, and dream one day of owning my VW Beetle and a cottage by the sea.
Though I am currently not working, I still love the weekends, no appointments for me yay - though I still have to do my hand exercises and mirror therapy, I am a bit lax on those as well..... The kids are in Auckland this weekend, so David and I went to Rainbow and Fairy Springs - we go there regularly cause we have an annual pass.... did I mention I got a new camera the other day, was going to get a Digital SLR, but with only having 1 hand, changing lenses etc would be difficult, so I got a really good Point and Shoot. I am loving it, though I still have a lot to learn, but it takes my mind of the CRPS when out and about well some of it anyway..... and you have to love digital cause you can take as many photos as possible and not waste money paying to get them developed... so here are some photos of Rainbow and Fairy Springs....
Our New Zealand Kea - Her name is Jenny
The Vicious Geese - well one of them
Ummm Forgot the name of this one
Tuatara - through glass hence the spots
The bottom one is Pounamu or what most people call Greenstone - it is huge and when you rub it you get good luck, so we rubbed it for my CRPS.
After that we went to a cafe for lunch, which was really nice as the cafe was not to hot.... so I actually enjoyed it. :-) Then we went to David's mum for a bit and got some groceries and by then I was knackered.
The best time for me to do things is morning, am not so sore :-)
Anyway today the kids come home, Andrew (Their father) is bringing them down double yay..... so this morning not sure what we will be doing, will wait and see when David gets up :-)
Oh yeah went to the gym with my Physio, sorted out some of the machines I can do, now to try them and hope they don't aggravate the wrist. Tomorrow I am meeting him at the pool to work out some stuff for there. At this stage ACC have paid for a 6 week membership - but hey better than nothing.
