Sunlit Waves, A Lighthouse and A New Cookery Book

28 Dec

It was such a beautiful day today, a clear blue sky and  lots of bright sunlight if rather cold. I was taken to see the sea at Chapel Porth, one of my favourite beaches so that I can hold that memory tight for the next few weeks.

3   This afternoon I have been drooling over my Christmas present from daughter No 2, a cookery book, ‘Red Velvet Chocolate Heartache’ by  Harry Eastwood and planning all the baking I shall be doing when I am back on my feet and off my crutches.

Tomorrow is the day and as my lovely and wise Mum used to say, “This too shall pass.”  I must admit to feeling somewhat apprehensive but this time tomorrow I shall have my new hip and be on the road to recovery. I’ve scheduled a few posts for the next week or so until, hopefully, I can start posting again.

    Your new hip will make so much difference! I had a new knee a few years back and it lessened the pains and gave me back so much movement. Just make sure you do the exercises however cruel they may seem! Malc

    So many of us will be thinking about you. (and being glad it isn’t us. lol ) Hoping all goes smoothly and you can look back on it all as you sprint around the kitchen making lovely things from the cookbook. 🙂

        My mom had a knee replacement a few years ago and it improved her life amazingly.

    You will pass with flying colours. My late mother had a double done in Truro when she was in her late 70s, and they kept her gardening till her late 80s. Three months after the op she tossed out the crutches too!

      Thank you so much for your vote of confidence – and the very positive report of your Mum.
      All the best
