dad tells me he is feeling better then could hardly breathe this afternoon, i thought it was another cough asphyxia coming on but he managed to get up whatever phlegm was stuck and was okay, i wish he would let me hire him a wheelchair for when we are in edinburgh, he is so not going to be able to manage the hills and the walking, anyway he reckons he is well enough to go out for a drink tonight, he says he'll only be a couple of hours.
chrissie from the rik rak ravers had her baby last night, a little boy named drake, she has posted some photo's and he is gorgeous, will have to make a card and send a gift
got my new cj done today, it doesn't need to be posted until the 30th january but with me going back to work after my holidays i thought i would do it while i had the time as time for scrapping will probably be replaced by sleeping and catching up on uks when i'm back

decided i'm going to take most of the xmas decorations down on monday and just leave the tree up until new year, then it won't be such of a mad rush, aslo wondering how to broach the subject with dad of maybe hiring a wheelchair for him while we are in edinburgh, don't think he'll go for the idea somehow
got lots of lovely stash to play with, including lovely stuff off jane who was my secret santa especially love the stamps and the inkpads, also got a lovely scarf off beatrice and a really pretty bracelet off val and some lovely stash off heather,
it's the seaton sluice crop today but not going, too much to do LOL

cooked the turkey today so it makes cooking xmas lunch a doddle tomorrow, i did it all by myself this year, and it looks lovely, didn't stuff it so it cooked really quickly and did all the checks to make sure it was cooked and i'm pretty sure it is, have started the stuffing and when that has cooled i'll put the sausage meat then i'm going to shape it into loaves LOL
must remember to stick a bottle of wine and a bottle of cava in the fridge for tonight and tomorrow
also did a bit of online shopping, sizzix were having a 75% off sale so i got 1 full alpha, 2x 9 die alpha's, a swirl and a label all for £39 WOW!!!

i thought we had reached an agreement where he would tell me if he wasn't well after the time last summer when he ended up in hospital, but obviously not, men!!! grrrrr!!!
had a rather formal letter off chrissie today inviting me to a meeting with her and hr on the 12th january at 10:30 to discuss my phased return, she had written on the bottom that she hadn't meant it to sound so formal, i'll have to see if i can get the occ health advisor to come along to it too
Monday, 22 December 2008
rang chrissie this morning and confirmed i will be back at work on the 12th january, she will get in touch with hr and occ health for me to arrange a phased return, so i've said i'll get a signing off note off the doctor for the 29th of december then take those four days as holiday then it only leaves me with 14 days holiday to take between mid january and march
my secret santa parcel arrived off rikrakravers today, i was naughty and looked the postcode up online so i know who it's off. i've put all the parcels into my stocking for xmas day and chrissie (uks) posted that she loved all of her pressies too

just relaxing today thinking, all is done for xmas so i can just chill, then i realised oh my god, we go to edinburgh in two weeks time and i have nothing sorted apart from we're going to see keith and nicola on the sunday we get there. so this afternoon thanks to google maps, my road atlas and lothian buses website, i have all the day trips planned!!!! planning on spending most of the time in edinburgh with a day out along the coast to tantallon and north berwick and tha morning at linlithgow palace before we go to keith and nicola's for lunch, if i get all i want done in edinburgh in 3 days just might have to have a trip up to striling to go to the castle and of course the craft shop LOL
so think i'll have to get the suitcases out quite soon and also get the toiletires sorted though hopefully we should have stuff left from tyndrum in november.
thought i'd show off my sprouts lo too, did it using the sarah's cards december kit which has some gorgeous luxe design papers in, love my sarah's cards kit

warned beatrice that i will be back after my birthday so she better get the cupboards tidy LOL
left about 10:45 and had the same chatty taxi driver back, i had a really lovely night with two really lovely ladies, mind you they were naughty and had xmas presents and i hadn't bought anything for them so will make sure i get them a little something when i'm in edinburgh

anyway, ceri and joy popped in for a cuppa and a chat today which was nice to see them, after they left i rang ernie and my computer was ready, they have ran many scans and i have again and ther's no sign of the thing, hopefully that means i'll be ok, then heard that there is a problem with internet explorer so after advice from some of the girls on uks i have changed over to mozilla firefox, not sure about it yet but at least i have managed to get my google tool bar back so it looks a bit more familias now

have been using the free papers i got out of the scrapbook magazine to make my book but i'm grunging it up with lots of ink etc. think it'll look good full of xmas 08 black and white photo's
Thursday, 4 December 2008
so that's christmas day sorted, i'll wear them with some jeans and might wear them for my 40th in edinburgh, keep putting them on and just looking at them as they are so pretty
on a more serious note, i had my assessment appointment with the clinical psychologist today, he was really nice, it was filling in forms and taking a bit of history and my next appointment is 15th january, which was a bit of a shock, i was hoping i would have had a couple of sessions under my belt by then.
had tons of snow today and i lost control of the car a couple of times, beginning to learn what to do in a skid now, hope it's all gone by tomorrow
