Having been nursing a broken ankle since early November I haven’t done most of the things I would normally do in preparation for the festive season. On the upside I didn’t even have to consider braving Bricks and Mortar shops – that would just have been silly however, not getting out and about much and being preoccupied with the healing of my ankle has also meant that Christmas spirit has been a bit thin on the ground.
Not any more though – I had my cast removed last Wednesday and replaced with a fracture boot which means I can walk again – Yay! I am also able to walk without the boot although it’s rather stiff and a little sore but I’m doing my exercises and it’s improving every day.
This is a great relief because I’ve been invited to spend Christmas with friends in Edinburgh and I was dreading the travelling if I’d still been in a full cast, but now I am busy getting myself together ready to fly up there on Monday and I’m so excited I can’t wait!
All the time I’ve had on my hands has not gone to waste though and I have a head full of all sorts of bead and jewellery ideas that I’m eager to get to work on after my break…so much time to make up.
Until then though I would like to say a very big thank you to all my friends, customers and followers who’ve supported me through the good and the bad this past year. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season however you spend it and look forward to seeing you back here before the new year.
Take care and have fun!
