.. Merry Christmas.... see you in 2017 .. xxx

..   Hello everyone   ....


 Hubby will be home from hospital on Christmas Eve and he will be on crutches he has been given no indication when he can drive again.......

  My big news is that I was rushed to hospital last Wednesday and after a long round of tests, it was decided that my Gall Bladder was infected and I had stones... so it needed to be removed..  this was done on Sunday and I came home yesterday... Tuesday 20th.

My daughter Mary moved in to look after Mum and has no intention of leaving until I can manage things on my own again.....   Isn't she wonderful ...Mum is enjoying Mary's company xx

My brother Franc and brother in law Steve have been great taking Mum to Drs appointments... she had a skin cancer cut off her top lip last Friday and will get the stitches out this Friday.....  it's a good thing done..  We want it healed before her party .

Mary is taking us to our friends place for Christmas lunch,,   will be wonderful,,  xxxx

wishing you all a merry Christmas and a wonderful 2017.....
... love ...  Barb   xxxxxxx

I bought a new kettle because the hot water dispenser was recalled ..   they all had a potential fault that could cause a fire.......   I love my new tilting kettle .....
