Hello *waves* and Happy New Year dear friends. How have you been? I am back from just over a months vacation (that's a break away to you and me) and I've only just started to control the withdrawal twitches so here I am.
So what's new? Fill me in on all the goss. I've got so much to tell you from this end. Firstly we had a great Christmas here at the Makeshift Manner. I had family and friends visiting over the festive period, including my soon-to-be 92 year old uncle, which Youngling and I loved hosting. Speaking of Youngling he was spoilt rotten, as you can imagine, and thoroughly enjoyed playing pass the parcel to the tune of the dancing Christmas tree for us to open each and every present. I even ate an entire slice of Christmas cake for the first time ever!

His favourite gift it has to be said was one he got as an early Christmas present. A darling friend treated little man to a brand spanking new Nexus 7 Tablet which Youngling has started calling his ipad (easier for him to say I suppose).

One of my choice favourite gifts, of which there were many, was again an early present in the form of a stocking full of treats from Warner Bros. for Youngling and I to enjoy.

It stretches from thigh to my head, across my shoulders and back and in my hair also.
I will keep you posted as to what the Dermatologist says and I finally have the hospital referral for my knee (again). Already it has been such a busy year - hence my month's holiday. Youngling has started back at school and thoroughly enjoyed his sleigh rides (aka on the sledge) through the snow. I have also written and spoken a sermon for my Church and am currently adapting it to send to some Christian magazines. Its all go!
