Week 49 in pictures

The morning of Saturday 3rd December was super-busy with costume preparation. I know, its the very end of Bonfire (boo-hoo, and thank God, all at the same time) and you would be forgiven for thinking that I had all the costume I ever needed to hand by now, but we missed the penultimate out meeting in Hawkhurst and somehow over the course of that 12 days or so of not bonfiring, costume got spread to the four winds. Plus we had a guest bonfirer coming with us, who needed kitting out as a pirate.  It was great to have Trev along, but I was a bit concerned about how he'd cope with the evening, due to his health issues. Luckily he has relatives in the village we were visiting, so he had somewhere to retreat when he needed to. 

Before leaving for Rottingdean, we attended a very special birthday party for two little honeys.  It was lovely to see the little ones playing, and spend time in a room with some of my very favourite and most important people.

Monday saw a trip to St Marks intestinal failure clinic with Trev. A chance to talk over his ever-present symptoms with his specialists, and make sure that his care is all in place.  I had slipped on Saturday night on the wet road in my pirate boots and bruised my coccyx and found the car journey rather painful, though mercifully traffic free for once.

The large glass of Sauvignon happened on Thursday evening in a pub located very close to the house I grew up in.  I had just enjoyed the Volunteers' Christmas dinner at the hospital, and when Dave came to pick me up, we headed off to the pub to chat over our days.  I love going back to this absolutely huge Victorian building, and thinking that when I was a little girl, safe in my bed at home, beer was flowing here then, as now.

At the weekend I put up some coloured Christmas lights as everyone seems to have cold blue or white lights up (including us) so I bought some £7 lights from Wilkinsons for the tiny tree in the hall, and they went all round the mirror too!
