I am back from a fabulous break, albeit I was man-down with a spider bite for nearly 2 weeks. My fellow arachnophobic John will appreciate how I feel about this! To cut a long story short, I got bitten in the ear which blew up like a rugby players ear who has been in one too many scrums; then my glands all flared up which made the right side of my face look fat and my jaw went incredibly tight, which was not conducive to enjoying a meal. FINALLY, I decided to head to the doc, who prescribed an antibiotic and a talking to for leaving it for 4 (or was it 5) days before seeing him. The antibiotic made me nauseous which was followed by intense headaches and finally a migraine. I popped more pills in those 2 weeks than what I usually take over a period of 5 years! All in all a positively unpleasant experience.
Moving swiftly along to much more exciting news; my Secret Santa parcel. Unlike last year, I have no idea who sent me my gift this year which truly makes this year a Secret Santa.
Many thanks to Tandy whose fun initiative this was again this year. I look forward to participating again next year.
In my package I received the most wonderful goodies:-
- An exquisite dish towel which I may use as a tray cloth;
- A beautiful set of bone handled and silver cutlery – I love bone handled cutlery; and
- A garlic peeler which I have yet to use – I believe they work really well.
Thank you again to Tandy for the fun and a great big thank you my Secret Santa for my super awesome pressie. xo
