Ok so on 21 December, 2 days before my daughters 17th birthday I go down with rota virus and it stayed with me until Friday. So missed birthday, Christmas etched etc. so now just seen my pressies , which apparently I had been given! Also got mum to have her cataract operation which has been a success. So roll on Hogmanay and I hope I can have that glass of wine I have been waiting on ..... Bah humbug !
