Long time no blogging ......
I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day. I did. Had a lovely breakfast with Dear Daughter and family and received lovely hand knitted socks, DVD voucher and lipstick - truly spoilt. Received some lovely pjamas in the mail from Dear Son. Took MIL out to lunch and generally had a lazy day.
I've been knitting still. These are more fingerless gloves for me. I also knitted gloves and two headbands for Dear Grand-daughter (almost 15) and gloves and a headband for Dear Little Grand-daughter (5)and gloves for Dear Daughter.
I've also been playing with my newest gadget - Sunbeam Pie Magic 4 - makes 4 pies. These were curried chicken - made with left over last night's roast chicken (cooked in George Roaster) mixed with white sauce, curry, peas and corn. Yummo! The pies only take a small amount of pastry and I use low fat puff pastry sheets. Guilt free pies as far as I'm concerned.
I've been blogging for THREE YEARS!!!!!!
Thankyou for keeping in touch with me for all those years!
On the health front:
Not good I'm afraid.
I won't go into too much detail, except to say there has been yet another diagnosis for my ailments - Polymyalgia Rheumatica - I have an appointment with a Physician on the 1st of July. My symptoms of pain and inability to move much more than a short walk and basic housework remain. One of my blood tests was abnormal - pointing towards this diagnosis - I remain sceptical - I don't want to take Corticosteroids unless absolutely essential, due to side effects. I know no-one really wants to take them and I know that I may have to take them.
I have often tried to leave supportive comments to some of my blogging friends who have an arthritic condition without truly realising what they are going through - I now know.
It's my Birthday later in the week. DH is taking me to a nice little resort/retreat for the night. I'm really looking forward to it.
Take care everyone. xx
