I had a nice, quiet relaxing Christmas. I spent Christmas Day at Johanna’s. She cooked a meal for us. I got 17 really nice cards which surprised me because I had earlier posted that I would not send out cards but give the money to children who needed food and clothes. Even so, thanks to all who did for they make me smile each time I look at them. I shall spend New Years Day at Johanna’s starting with a late breakfast then we are going to watch a concert. My next hospital appointment is on the 31st of January 2023, then there are others later. In mid-January I start my meetings with the two small groups of ladies who are working to improve their English. I’m looking forward to that for they are two interesting groups. We are having mixed weather here from very cold to 17 degrees today but that won’t last long!
