Finally I can share the x-stitch picture which I finally finished for my friend G. I hope she likes it. I admit to being glad to get to the end of it as when you sew with two greens just one shade apart, it sends you cross-eyed! The dark green trees on the right were an area I made an error with a couple of years back and I could not make sense of what I had sewn (and left) and the chart, so I abandoned the chart and bodged them - not too badly I hope.
Yesterday I did some baking - a Boiled Fruit cake with crushed pineapple in, which is a great last minute Christmas cake (sans icing). I also made my Manderin Orange Cake but wasn't paying attention and used the plain flour which was out - it needs Self Raising. Still edible just not very sponge-like!!
Tam has had her booster jab, and the other two are booked in today and tomorrow for theirs. Tam's had her glands come up under her arm, but that is a common reaction as those are the lymph nodes closest to the injection site and their reacting is a sign that the immune system has kicked in. The same thing often happens with Flu. Keith and I, being elderly, just had sore arms as at our age we have less of an immune system to make a fuss with!
Keith's Physio visited again yesterday and they went through the exercises he needs to do to develop his muscles again. He had Keith doing things which I thought he would just not have been able to do, which gives hope . . . He has to do his exercises 3 times a day and we see Daniel again in the New Year.
Well, I shall wish you all Merry Christmas now, as I am sure we are all going to be quite busy over the next few days. Keep safe, and stay happy.
