I had to perform open heart surgery…

with a stuffing transplant on my daughter’s favourite teddy this morning. Poor thing! He’d had the cotton played out of him quite literally. So I told her I’d fix it up for him. She scrubbed in to assist ( too much Grey’s Anatomy episodes :-):-)) while I meticulously repaired the damage and told her to keep him on bedrest for the rest of the day. Which she did. Quite beautifully:-) checking his temperature with her doctors kit and making him watching a cartoon to relax this afternoon:-):-)

I was planning to watch Gone with the Wind finally after they’d gone to bed tonight but my son was so impressed with my work he’s left two of his favourite stuffed toys for me to fix by morning! And no cutting any corners he said very seriously. I want them good as new when I open my eyes in the morning! Heaven help me. Guess I will be staying up until midnight after all. Have you ever seen a alittle kid’s disappointed face before? Well I haven’t. And I don’t intend to start the new year with one! :-):-) kids for you eh

Happy new Year’s Eve everyone:-).

Ps. Thanks for being there for me this year. It was appreciated far more than you’ll ever know. Hope you a peaceful and prosperous and bright 2017 too. God bless you.

Hope the xmas holidays

was kind to you. Nativity  plays, secret Santas,  Christmas work lunch do and dinner, helping to wrap presents for Lapland so that every inpatient on Christmas day got a gift, visiting friends, gift buying, gift wrapping, remembering love ones…..Yes it’s been quite busy my way lately so I apologise for not writing sooner. My dad died three days before Christmas and my marriage ended around Christmas time so I can be and have been very low recently. I light a candle in the window every morning and evening to remind myself that light shall not be overcome by darkness and that even in the pitchest darkness of our lives there is always light. I light a candle to remember the dead and to remind myself that while i was still alive I had a duty to live my life fully and beautifully for those left behind. I light a candle for hope.

Hope you had a good holiday too.
