My knee
Monday 23rd April
It's 8 weeks to the day since I had my operation - not long really in the scheme of things. Although the muscles are still weak in that leg and I am still using a crutch, there is no pain in my knee when I stand or walk which is a miracle after what I've put up with in the past.

I don't do a lot of memes but this one is good because, as you say, you get to know a bit more about the author. I will visit soon. Thanks for dropping by.

Sorry that was me. I had a senior moment and forgot I'd already been by yesterday! I greeted you all over again! (Put it down to the hormones)

"Early Bird" said...

Akelamalu said...

Early bird
Glad you enjoyed my innermost secrets! ;)

What did you buy?

Anonymous said...

Thanks for asking me to do this. It was fun!

Danielle said...

I swiped this meme.

Be well and enjoy the day

Cream said...

Ake, can I call you Ake! Akelamalu is so long!
Ok, Ache, I love cheese too! Anything, and the stronger the better.
And the other thing is that I love your playlist...

Linda said...

Love your answer to #20 (who wouldn't?!)

I really like these sorts of memes as they're easy for the writer to do and it really does give us a glimpse into that person more so than just regular blog posts do.

So glad to hear that your knee is mending so well! Pretty soon I'm sure you'll be without that crutch completely!

Cindy said...

Everyone who said pretty much the same thing about these memes being a good way to get a glimpse of someone is right.
Glad to hear your knee is doing better.

la bellina mammina said...

As always, love your answers! And your playlists too.;-)

Nea said...

A person learns a lot about someone with these meme's don't they. Maybe to much, haha.......if we answer them truthfully.

I stopped and thought a moment on the pet question, do you have a pet, and your, because it is to hard when they go.....and I have to say......that is exactly how I am feeling. I want another dog, but I am not going to get one, not now anyway. It is just to painful when they die.

Elween said...

haha,a cool set of questions and answers too! :)

Akelamalu said...

Glad you enjoyed it, it was great getting to know more about you too!

Feel free! I'll drop by to find out more about you later. :)

You can call me Ake or Ache, it's up to you. :) Glad you like my playlist.

Hugs and Kisses - fantastic!

I like easy memes too, nothing that taxes the brain - I'm basically lazy!

Yes it's great getting to know people!

La Bellina Mammina
Thanks honey. Enjoy the music.

The pet question really got to me too. :(

Thanks. :)

CS said...

Interesting meme - one of those ones you read and it's nothing earth-shattering, just the feeling that you know that blogger a little better. I like that.

Akelamalu said...

Yes it's a good way to get to know more. :)
