A Proper Post!

James - buzz cut & name.
I am so busy spamming you with London photos, as well as managing to keep up to date with the December Meme that I haven't actually done a proper post in ages ... so here goes.

  • First, I am so sorry, but I forgot to post Birthday wishes to gillo and shaddyr yesterday.  I truly hope you both had lovely days, being spoilt by those you love and that the coming year will be a truly special one.

  • I have just got back from the doctors.  I have been signed off for the rest of this week with the option to just phone in on Monday if I still feel rough.  It is being called a viral chest infection, but basically exhaustion on top of that.  I have had viral chest infections most years, normally lasting about 5 - 7 days, so it's obvious when my body has to slow down that's what gets to me.

  • Jiffy has another bad skin infection, so he was happy to go and see Marni for a cuddle (and anti-biotics!)

  • My new kitchen worksurface arrives tomorrow.   So when I finish this I have to clear all the surfaces.

  • I really need to get organised for Christmas.  I think I have done most of the shopping, but need to sort it out and post things off.  I haven't even thought about cards, but already received some, so I must focus.  Maybe I will try to get started tomorrow while my kitchen is being dismantled.

  • Yesterday I had a suprise phone call.  The person who had been Mum's friend while they were at school during the war.  They lost some of their closeness when she married, and then Mum moved away, but have still kept in touch and visited .  She just phoned to find out how I was coping.  So that was really lovely.

Well, anyone who is still awake wins a special award.

Now, I will post some more London photos later! But to finish, a Christmas song I heard on the radio this morning -

Yay for future kitchen fun!

Or, I could not want to get things dirty, and just buy take-aways!

That could be fun, too. :D

Sending good vibes along to you and Jiffy.

Thank you - we are both doing OK today

There are some nasty viruses (virii?) going around here too. Casey is just finishing up dealing with a nasty bug. Across the state, my mom just got rid of pneumonia, my dad has a bad head cold, and my sister just got diagnosed with sinusitis, bronchitis and something weird with her throat. I'm barricading myself from everyone and cuddling the cats.

Sammy (our dog) has a bad (really bad this time) skin infection too. He's in the middle of his steroids and finishing up his antibiotics. Poor puppies! Sammy send commiserating woofs to Jiffy.

Hugs.

Sorry for the late reply.

Hope, by now Casey and Sammy are 100% again.

So, many bugs!

Sorry you're under the weather. It was very kind of your mum's friend to check in with you.

Poor Jiffy!

Sorry for the late reply.

Thanks for the wishes - Jiffy is slowly getting there, as am I.

Yes, it was nice for Pat to ring, it meant a lot.

I hope you and Jiffy both have a full and speedy recovery!

How sweet of your Mum's friend to call!

Hi! I had a few minutes so I wanted to say hello and wish you a Happy Christmas. Tommy and I went to the movies and out to eat today. I managed to get my Christmas shopping done. I set about to make candy for presents and found I had not candy thermometer. I know I would have packed the one I had, but I am missing several things I know I should have packed when I moved. I will have to find one I like so I can make peanut brittle.

It's going to be very cold tonight and I can't figure out how to get my heater to work. I haven't had to use it and it's a gas heater which I haven't had one for over thirty years. It's in a dark little room with no light. I am not happy about having to figure out how to use it.

Sorry to hear about the viral infection. I hope you had managed to get past those. Hope the new year shows an improvement for you.

Continuing to both miss you, and wish you a positive year ahead.

Reading your comments about the packing made me smile, I moved M&D's stuff to me, and moved my stuff around so much that I am sure I have mislaid loads .... probably realise it when I go to cook, like you.

*hugs*

Thanks - I am slowly feeling better.

Hope you are much more well now and send lovely Jiffy my best for the infection to get gone soon pls!
