Odds and sods

Things have changed a little bit in our household over the past week.My little mother has moved in with us while she waits 
to go into hospital for heart surgery. Last week we twice ended up in ED in the middle of the night and on the second occasion she was admitted for several days. We all feel much better now she is home with us and we can keep an eye on her. Hopefully the surgery will take place before the end of the month.
Anyway I haven't done a lot lately but here are some assorted photo's from the last week or so. 

Some of the flowers Mum has received from family in Australia.

Little mother organising her Christmas
 presents for her little great grandchildren.

Brown trout caught by my GKB, none of which
 won the competition he was taking part in.

Christmas cake ingredients and below finished product. I have a Christmas function I am supposed to be helping with so said I'd make the Christmas cake and then if anything happens with little mother I feel as if I have upheld my obligations.

A very enjoyable night out at a makeup evening with my girls, two grand daughters in front, two daughters and then me. And I was fortunate enough to win the door prize :) 



  1. Keeping your dear mother in my prayers. You're life has suddenly gotten very busy. Hard to believe we are thinking and preparing for Christmas already! Have a blessed day.

  2. Prayers going up for your little mother. I loved the picture of her getting her Christmas gifts ready. And your cake looks so good.

  3. Congratulations on winning the door prize! I am so thankful you had that nice time with your girls and so very grateful your little mother is with you and you can keep a close eye on her. She looks so sweet..reminds me a bit of my own dear Mom. Enjoy your moments together, my friend!

  4. Praying for your mother and for all of you as she goes through these things in her life. I know how difficult that is, and my heart goes out to you as you try to keep her comfortable and take care of the rest of your life as well! May God give you strength each day.

  5. Sound like a good idea having your mother at home with you. I pray all goes well with her surgery.

  6. My sweet friend, you and your dear little mother are never far from my thoughts and prayers. I will be praying that her surery goes very well.

    Love and hugs to you!

  7. Diana, my prayers are with your sweet mother. I pray that her surgery will take place soon and go very well.
