Funny: this time last year, I was in hospital. I had just had, the morning before, a major operation to remove a five pound, football sized and shaped ovarian cyst. I was happy on morphine and codeine, my abdomen (belly button down) was stapled and stitched, and I was being carolled to nightly by some really really really bad volunteer carollers. But I had the four bed unit to myself!!

I like that, this Christmas, I am not going to be stapled together, I am not going to be doubled over in pain and on too many painkillers, and I am not going to have to open presents while lying on my back propped by a pillow! 😉
