Fun & laughter at putt putt golf and a bruised butt!

It was my youngest son’s Birthday a few weeks back, and he wanted to go to putt putt golf as his main gift. He is sport and ball obsessed, bless him.

So, we went tonight to a really good one near the city, that we haven’t been to before. We got there about 6.30pm, because our sons wanted to go in the evening, because it’s floodlit, and because being kids, they think that is more special.

We had so much fun, my youngest had a ball (literally), lots of laughter and excitement, as 5yr olds do. he was so delighted.

Our other son, was very happy too, loved it and was delighted to get the only hole-in-one, which he of course had to tease his dad about, who is a golfer haha!

My highlight, was falling backwards, on a rock, in slow motion, with my arms flapping, my legs then in the air, and bruising my butt and hand. My medication I take, definitely affects several things, including my blood pressure and I normally have excellent balance, but not any more.

It looked a bit like this – only a woman – in a skirt!


But, it was really funny, and I can really laugh at myself, so I started laughing immediately, whilst clutching my poor butt, and trying to scramble back up and pull my skirt down. Everyone was laughing!

It was the highlight of my husbands night too, he thought it was hysterical and nearly peed his pants he laughed so much! To be fair, he did rush to help me up too.

So, it was fun all round and I’m glad it was fun, lots of laughter – even at me – and our boys were so delighted!

Having been a really tough few months, it was such a relief to have some fun, with my family and I do know how blessed we are.

It was a gift from God – to remind me that there is always good, even in the bad – and there absolutely is.

It was a perfect few hours – even though my butt might disagree lol!

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario
