Quick Catch Up

Hi to anyone who drops in to visit me - I'm sorry I haven't been around very much lately.  A very big thank you for the kind emails enquiring after my well being.  Very much appreciated from my blogging family x

As a family we've had a lot of "stuff" going on lately and I've needed to turn my attention to that so we can be the strong, supportive unit we always are in trying times.

During my blogging absence there have been some good times too, a lovely trip to Banbury and Oxford for me and the man, full of blissful relaxation in a wonderful hotel, great food,  Xmas shopping in gorgeous little shops and a meeting with a dear friend.

We've put up our Yule tree - a woodland theme this year - here's some pics:-


























I'm off to hospital to have my gall bladder out tomorrow and to say that I'm a tad scared is an understatement as I've never had a general anaesthetic before.  I'm sure all will be ok and I shall see you on the flip side as they say ...erm... somewhere!

Be good - Santa's watching! ;)

  3. If your op is via keyhole surgery, all should be well. Never having had an anaesthetic, gosh you are lucky. It is nothing to worry about, I usually feel a little sick afterwards but most people don't even get this. Hope all goes well and love your tree.

    1. Thank you DC - I did have keyhole surgery - was very surprised as I didn't think they'd be able to but they did! x

  4. you'll be fine, lovely girl. I had mine out last September and it was a breeze. You will have a needle in the back of your hand and when they inject the drug, you'll slip off to sleep and wake up with 3 tiny holes in your tummy, wondering where that hour went. I had little pain, but expect to be sleeping the anaesthetic off for a few days afterwards. Lots of TLC from the family, don't try to do too much, recover slowly and enjoy Christmas xx

  5. I love your woodland themed tree - where did you get your decorations? I had an owl at the top of our tree last year, and pheasants the year before. We like a natural world kind of tree too, especially as I don't do religion! Hope the operation went well - I've had general anaesthetic three or four times in my life and always feel really scared before - I don't like going to hospital at all - hope everything went well and will look forward to hearing from you when you are well enough.

    1. Your past trees sound wonderful! Do you have the pics on your blog? Pheasants sound great! Most of the stuff was from Wilkinsons but a couple of its were from Paperchase (the red stags). I adore the tree this year and am really happy with our changes xx
