I have a date

For my surgery.  It is to be 13 December 2016.  My grandsons birthday. Not looking forward to it but I need to keep mobile and as such really have no choice in the matter as the pain element has been increasing and therefore I need to see an end to certain problems especially in relation to my back and my feet.

Now I have a date that means that things will have to be done a bit quicker than anticipated.  I have in effect six weeks before surgery and to get ready for Christmas.  I will also need to sort the Christmas pressies out as well.  Things are going to be hectic and I also need the house sorting and shed sorting.

It is Halloween and our little dog Missy's birthday.  I can hardly believe that we have had her for six precious years.  She has bought a lot of joy and a lot of laughter and needless to say has her humans well trained.  Even though predominantly she is OHs dog there are certain things that she will not let him do as they are mum jobs and even if he offers her certain things she will not take them or even eat them unless I hand them to her.  Terribly affectionate though and certainly likes being with us.

Halloween where has this year gone.  It was a proper creepy evening walk with Missy tonight as the mist is starting to rise on the fields near the river.  I have taken some photos unfortunately they have not downloaded as yet.  Will add to the post as soon as they clear.

The kiddies are already out trick or treating with parents in tow.

We have our Sunday dinner tonight.  We bought a leg of lamb from the butchers yesterday and so are having it with all the trimmings this evening. (Have since had and it was absolutely delicious - studded it with garlic cloves and mint jelly then served with mashed potatoes, roast potatoes, shredded cabbage, mixed broccoli, cauliflower and carrots and then peas.  Went down very nicely - now nicely stuffed.

Am very drained this evening but then that is not surprising really after the busy week I have had this far.

Hope you are all keeping well.

Catch you shortly.
