Life does get hectic sometimes doesn't it!
Firstly an update on my dear Mum. She had a successful operation for bowel cancer last week and is now back at home and doing rather well. She came home 5 days after her operation and doesn't need any further treatment, as far as we know at this stage. So that is extremely good news. She is remarkable to be doing so well at 88 and still keeping her sense of humour. Bless her heart.
Life is very busy though as you can imagine with Christmas preparations now speeding up. The weather is very trying with all the snow we have been having and we are just hoping that our daughter and grandaughter will make it to us on Christmas Eve.
So I would like to take this opportuniy to wish everyone a peaceful and happy Christmas and send you all the very best wishes for a healthy and prosperous New Year. I leave you with this lovely Christmas Carol.
Love and hugs to all. A xxx
