Before my list of gratefuls ,as promised, part 2 of my Christmas.....
Lots of wonderful presents and good food and silly games on the Wii...
We didn't have Turkey this year as I found a recipe on Pinterest for Cranberry Glazed Ham......very, very yummy.
And it was the only day I had to cook!!! Out for pizza on Boxing Day and then an Indian meal on Tuesday...our now traditional meal out with the boy before he goes back to Uni.
Santa Max looking not very happy......oh, the indignity of it!! Silly hat!
The boy went back to Bristol on Weds and I went to Stoke Mandeville Hospital..twice. Consultation in the morning and then biopsy in the afternoon - it was pure chance that they had a cancellation that day - the biopsy wasn't that urgent (fingers crossed). That is why I have stitches in my tongue..sorry Gina, I wish it was 'cos I'd had my tongue pierced! lol Follow up appt. in three weeks...during which time I'll no doubt frighten myself by researching on the internet etc. etc. I may also lose some weight as eating/drinking is painful and I'm on the warm salt water diet for 7 days...bleugh!
But enough of the doom and gloom..... we have 2012 to look forward to..January is already busy with hospital/GP/blood test appointments for both DH and me.....and now I have a mammogram appt. too......yay!! And I still reckon a man designed that machine. :(
Gratefuls for 2011:
Family; friends (esp. my online/crafting ones); Kindle; good books; authors who are accessible and friendly on Facebook; Pinterest for new recipes (as I do get bored making the same things over and over); Man Utd for being Champions again; John Bishop for making me laugh; BBC1 for Sherlock and Zen;BBC4 for Spiral 3 and Montalbano; Sky Living for Bones and FX for NCIS; the England Cricket team for regaining the Ashes in Australia and for sending me a Christmas card.. :) and finally Max for being my constant (in both senses of the word) companion.
All that's left is to wish you all a very Happy New Year..will see you Rocking in 2012.
