Taking a Break

It is said that life is full of surprises and I certainly had one sprung on me recently.  I went to see a specialist for a minor concern and discovered that I needed to have major surgery.  

I signed a consent on 5th April and got a call four days later to tell me that I was on the list for 26th April.  Yes, I am having surgery tomorrow.

I’ve just returned from town, where I stocked up on a few last-minute essentials - including a lidded cup with a straw, so that I can drink lying down (if I don’t feel up to moving). I called the hospital this afternoon to confirm my bed and I’m first on the list tomorrow morning, which I’m relieved about, as it gives me less time to get anxious waiting.  

I’m not sure how I’ll be feeling after surgery, but will likely be off for a few weeks.  Wishing you all a happy spring and I hope that the sun is shining in your part of the world.


Well, Easter has come and gone and it is still cold and miserable here - we had sleet again this morning.  I’m wondering if spring will ever arrive.  

I did do a bit of baking for Easter - hot cross buns from Mary Berry’s recipe, which turned out great and were delicious.  Also, our favourite chocolate Easter cupcakes.

The weeks have passed by in a blur and I was surprised to find that I’ve only posted on my blog five times since January.  There has been a lot on my mind - more of which in the next post.
