Apologies for my absence but I haven't been very well. I have been backwards and forwards to the Doctor who along with the NHS have been brilliant. I'm still awaiting blood results but the emergency scan I had within 48 hours of it being ordered by the Doc, thanks to a cancellation proved normal. I'm count my blessings as I'm a very well person normally, so to feel unwell has really got me down. Everything has been a struggle because of the pain and tiredness I been experiencing due to the lack of sleep.
When you reach your sixties you seem to hear, all too frequently that someone you know in your age group has passed and this happened only this week when my SiL's father had a massive heart attack and died aged 62, despite being airlifted to hospital. That's no age. He'll be missed by the family.
Christmas has slowly visited my home and the tree and decorations are finally in place. There are 2 battery sets of lights to go on the bays later today when/if it stops raining. I must recommend these sets of LED battery lights available form all sorts of places. We got our first ones 2 years from Wilko and managed to pick up 3 more sets on offer at £3.75 instead of £5 with batteries included. We did invest in some extra batteries from Poundland, 24 AA Kodak batteries for £2 (I know its a bit of an oxymoron). The lights have 8 functions and automatically come on for 8 hours and go off for 16, furthermore the batteries last for 30 days on average.They are ideal for dressing my small conifers in pots near the front door and anywhere you don't have an outside socket.
I discovered these picture ornaments in my bargain box, the place I put all the after Christmas sale stuff ready for the following year. I'll be searching my phone for suitable photos to insert.
I've had a couple of very good yellow sticker shops and I'll report on them shortly. I'm loving having to think on my feet when I get the ingredients home and turn then into meals etc Well that's all for now, I have a four legged little hairy friend whom I'm totally in love with waiting for a walk as the rain has finally subsided. The wind or rain doesn't bother him in the slightest but it does me!
Bye for now, Tx
