Back at last

I am finally back in the land of the living - I have felt terrible the last two weeks whilst on (and coming off) the steroids. Over the weekend I have finally found a clear head and feel I can function properly now - before I was living in a semi-drunk kind of world - which would be fine if I'd been enjoying the wine too.

There is so much to catch up on I haven't has chance to read everyone's blogs so best wishes if you need them and a hug to you all at this busy time of year.

First I had a wonderful evening last Monday when I met Julie for a coffee at a nearby shopping centre. We chatted for over an hour and it seemed like we'd known each other ages. It certainly made me feel tons better- thanks Julie.

I will be decorating the church tree on Thursday and have had some more gorgeous ornaments. The first is from my friend Maria in USA, the second is a beaded Santa from Cathy another USA friend, the third is a beaded one from Elaine my friend who works at college, and the fourth is from my secret (as yet) partner in the JA Christmas Ornament Exchange. DH has bought me a set of lights, and mum has given me loads of tinsel, so everything is ready to put up on Thursday. I will be adding photos so you can all see both my tree and all the others.

I haven't done much stitching but am working on a stocking for DS as this is his last visit from Santa - I can't believe he's 18 - and I still expect him to be awake all Christmas Eve with excitement - hee hee.

Thanks for all the get well messages, happy stitching.
