Just as autumn's colours were gracefully coming to an end
and the golden and tanned leaves
had nearly all fallen...
some gorgeous red berries reminded me
that I could start thinking creatively about Christmas preparations.
I just love everything about that.
Preparing homemade decorations and presents.
Crochet for the long winter evenings.
Mincemeat to make for the traditional mince pies.
Cards to make
and cookies to bake
and imagining how to creatively use my new Christmas lights.
then it happened in a flash.
A very slippery floor and an unseen plastic bag
and down I went
and my right wrist is fractured,
everything is on hold for about six weeks.
Can you imagine that I got to choose the colour of my cast?
I could have had purple or neon green, but chose French navy instead!
My morale is excellent despite some frustrations in everyday living.
I can do much less and everything takes much longer.
I know you will understand if I leave less comments on your blogs,
but will be coming in to visit you all.
