Still plodding on.....

OK here's another one for the list.... a lorry swiped Luvbug's car on Saturday!

I'm not joking! All is ok; the bumper just did its job, basically! Huge rip and it's hanging on by one side. Lots of scratches and a hole. We're trying to remember what used to be in the hole. Haha.Maybe it was a little 'Fiat' badge or something. Have to sneak up on another Fiat Punto and find out what little circular thing they have on their bumper.

Meanwhile, mum is doing ok. I've nipped in to the library to log on for a wee while and she is up the shops. We're meeting up in a mo for tea and a mince pie in a cafe. I'm not really into mince pies but I'm trying to fatten her up a bit and she won't eat unless I do, so.... :)

I am getting almost unbelievably fat. No bike here so my new excercise regime has gone to pot and all the extra food. I usually have a snack of a breakfast and then a meal with Luvbug in the evening. But I'm trying to get mum into Breakfat, Lunch, Snack, Dinner routine ( as per her dietician, whom she'll be seeing this Friday) and as she won't eat unless I eat, and won't cook unless I cook.... it means I am eating more than ever! I am looking forward to the new year, to mum being fit and well and living nearer us, and also to getting myself fit, too!

Luvbug brought some of my craft stuff down at the weekend, and I bought some basics at a shop here, so I managed to make a few Christmas cards last night. It was nice and relaxing. I refrained from glitter though. Best not get it into the carpets with mum selling up an' all....!

Hope to be in a position to visit your blogs soon. Please bear with me! The laptop worked on the internet last time I was at mum's, but this time it just doesn't want to play, so I am limited to a little time in the library instead. Et voila. I am surrounded by noisy Polish guys in here. I remembered enough Polish to ask them to be quiet. They replied with something I suspect I'd rather not translate even if I could.... Grrr.........

Better be off now. Have a mother to seek out and find, and fill with tea and mince pies :)

Glad things are starting to turn the corner for your Mum, Helena. Sorry to hear about your car :( I'll bet the guys in the library didn't expect anyone to know any Polish...good on you! And never knock back an opportunity for a mince pie...!! :)

Don't worry about the mince pies. Just enjoy getting your Mum well and getting back to full health. Glad to hear you are doing a little crafting but oh! your poor car! I'm impressed by the Polish!

Well it sounds like your life is just one thing after another still! My computer broke and when I transferred files onto my new one I lost my favorites list! I can never remember your blog name so I finally googled you. You are there on page 2! Now you are back in a new folder.

I hope they get the meds straightened out for your mum so you can all get settled into home again. Glad you got some of your card making stuff with you. It really helps to have your art stuff nearby even if you can't always find the time to use it.

Cars can be repaired but still! I am hoping the new year coming up is going to be all that this one wasn't for you.

Hi Helena! (hmm, wonder what the comment above me is saying? )
I'm so sorry to hear about the car! Thank goodness Luvbug is all right!
I hope your mum is feeling better every day. Mini strokes tend to sneak up after the first one, but the affects are not too bad.
Don't worry about eating too much. It is the Holiday season and we all tend to do it. Plus most of us are indoors more which gives us the "lazies".
We have a lot going on with us now too. The rain and it pours thing. I'm thinking it's just this decade in general now! I have heard others express this too. It's just been an over all crappy decade! I hope the new year is so much better. 10 is a lucky number right?
I'm glad you have your craft supplies there. It's such a lovely way to go "Zen" and relax. Rubber stamps and glitter should be covered under our medical coverage. :) It's cheaper than Seraquil.
I am keeping you in my thoughts every day. I just sent off your Christmas card. Don't worry about getting your cards to the Post. Everyone who knows you completely understands. You just take care of yourself!
Lots of Hugs for you, a hug for Mum and kissies for the Kitties,
Love,
Lorianna
