Our N.H.S., Christmas Lights and Happy Christmas to All

24 Dec

Our NHS is wonderful! I went for my 12 month check up today for my Total Hip replacement done at the end of last year and as we walked to the clinic, we were remembering the pain I was in a year ago and now I am walking well, due entirely to the skill of the Surgeon who has given me two new hips.  In fact, I am walking even better after our visit with the Consultant as he dealt with some pain I have been having since a visit to the cinema in October, with a Cortisone injection and now I am walking on air!
There were some lovely paintings in the waiting room, all by Susie Grindey, and all of lovely places in Cornwall.  This one is of Godrevy Lighthouse, a favourite haunt of ours.

The lovely Mr S has put up our Tree of Lights in the garden this afternoon and it looks beautiful though somewhat incongruous with the daffodils in the foreground!

    Happy Christmas to you, Sally and thank you for all ‘Beautiful Things’ you shared with us throughout the year. I love the tree with the daffodils and the snow gently falling – thanks to WordPress – adds to the whole atmosphere!

      Happy Christmas to you! I wish I could see the snow that you and Ladysighs tell me is gently falling! It would be better than the rain lashing down outside! 🙂

        The snow did not materialise in my neck of the woods, The scenery is murky blue grey, but I am focusing on the birds feasting from a Cotoneaster tree right outside my window! I just checked the ground… it has freckles… not sure if it is raindrops or her sister snow!

    Merry Christmas to you both from us here in much too warm Vermont. No daffs, but I did shoot some tiny blue Speedwells in the lawn today.

      Too warm and much too wet here! Just one sunny day in the last couple of weeks and as I write here to wish you a very Happy Christmas on Christmas morning, the next storm has arrived and is lashing the windows! Love from us both to all of you xxx
