See this? It’s my right hand recovering from a two and half day hospital stay. Don’t worry, I am –almost– fine. I went of my own free will to check up on all sorts of things, mainly because my doctor doesn’t like the way my cholesterol count and my blood pressure are acting up. I was really lucky, because I fell into the hands of a particularly motivating team who convinced me that my health in the years to come, was right there, in my hands. I was tested right and left for all sort of things and when I got out, with a few good resolutions that I have started to put into effect and intend to keep, –not too many of them, or else I won’t be able to stick to them 😉 — I felt I needed a treat.
At Christmas, on my daughter’s suggestion, Santa brought her one of those Nintendo DS Lites, and to my surprise, she and her boyfriend, both very young, started on a brain training programme, you know, the Japanese doctor’s programme, I keep calling the poor man Kawasaki, but when I have reduced my brain age from 80 (that was two days ago) to 20 (which will probably never happen) I will be able to remember his real name. Anyway, Julie started on the Japanese doctor’s programme and aims at keeping her brain at 20 forever 😉 And so does her boyfriend. They’ve been faithfully doing it every day since Christmas day!
They tried to talk me into buying one, but I sort of thought that blogging was plenty brain exercising for me. But they had planted the seed! As you know, I am a sucker for gadgets and electronic games and it didn’t even take me two months to go and get one.
On my first attempt, my brain was registered at 80, and two days later, I am at 58. I find the whole thing hilarious, and I did my first sudoku ever, with only three errors, when up to now, I have been unable to even understand the concept!
So there I am, trying to exercise my body and my brain and find time for blogging and photographs too.
