Merry Christmas


I hope everyone has/had a lovely Christmas.

Its the most laid back one I’ve ever had. For once I am not hosting the Christmas meal. I am cooking it at my sisters!!!!!

But it has taken the pressure of me.

This has been my home for the last week.


but last night I’d had enough of being on my own. So we made my bed up on the floor next to the Christmas tree, so that I could watch a film (Atonement). I dosed up on every tablet and miracle of miracles my pain went. So much so, that I had a bath past midnight. The first pain free one for 8 months. Absolute HEAVEN. I even got to sleep in my old bed with my husband!!!.I slept a drugged sleep until nearly 11am.

So today I have been making the most of this slight respite from pain. I’ve finished all the cooking. The gammon ham is baked and carved. A batch of red velvet cupcakes made and of course it wouldn’t be Christmas without a chocolate Yule Log.


So Merry Christmas to everyone, I hope you have a great holiday.




Love from Karen XXXXXX
