happy holidays

I can't believe it's been 10 days since I last posted! What's been happening? Well we're sorta limping to the end of the year here at craftapalooza. The pinched nerve it's getting there, slowly, still  painful but improving. Ted had his first surgery to correct his luxated patella (grade 3 for those in the know) and we're now trying to keep him on room rest and short leash walks for the next 5 weeks. Can someone please tell him that he shouldn't leap onto sofa's when he's just had a couple of pins put into his leg bone. Silly pup.  He's recovering surprisingly well thank goodness which is a relief as we had no idea what to expect and didn't want him to be in pain. Sondra's also having some health issues at the moment which are causing her some pain, poor honey. So effectively we're the house of pain.

Aside from all of the above we're actually doing well and enjoying the beginning of our Christmas holidays. Though I'm frustrated with the lack of crafting, the neck/arm doesn't allow for much at the moment I have managed to do some Christmas baking and packaging. On the menu peppermint bark, vanilla snap biscuits and homemade vanilla marshmallows. The peppermint bark recipe I made up from several recipes I found online, the vanilla snaps and marshmallow recipes both come from Donna Hay.

Wishing you all safe and happy holidays. Thanks again for dropping by!

    I’m glad you’re on the mend. I’m just finding out that my wrist/hand/arm problems are probably from a nerve problem too! At least I can hopefully get it all fixed now but I understand your frustration at not being able to get on with crafting and other things.
    Also I’m glad your puppy is ok, but sorry to here you partner isn’t well! I hope you all had a nice Christmas anyway and will be all better very soon!
