Is this my diet year!!!!

Here we are almost into February and well January has just been a month of saying I'm going to do things and really not attempting to do anything and the only reason is ... too cold. Yes, here in good old England we are not used to harsh winters and I have to admit as I get older I find the cold seems to creep around these old bones of mine and I just want to settle down in front of the TV and wrap a blanket round me to keep snug and warm.
I have though decided this is the year of the diet - again this is due to thinking I have gallstones. I had a dreadful pain around my chest just over a week ago and the doctor gave me an ECG which showed my heart was fine, it wasn't just indigestion so she's sending me for an ultra sound on my liver and then said it could be gallstones. So I am reading up on foods to avoid just in case it is. At least it's got me eating healthy but I'd value your prayers as she said if it's not gallstones I'd have to have an endoscopy (camera down throat) and I have to admit I just don't fancy having that done at all.

As for the diet, I will keep you posted as to how I get on or rather if I get on ...

Holidays are over ..

Christmas Day was spent with my son, daughter in law and grandchildren and the rest of the hols with my family up North. It was soooooo cold. It's a long time since we've had that much snow and I'm just so glad that it has now all gone.
There was just so many toys around on Christmas Day I don't think the children knew which one to play with first but the look on their faces as they opened their gifts was a joy to see. I've decided too I need a new camera or at least I need to remember to take pics.

My sister got 3 tickets for her, mam and I to go and see Winter Wonderland at the theatre. We take mam in her wheelchair as she can't manage stairs so we had a box to ourselves and a great view. It was a lovely night.

We had a very quiet new year just mam and I. We watched TV until after midnight and then by the time we had telephoned family to wish them a Happy New Year we made it up to bed around half one. I don't think mam has been up so late in a long time.

All too soon though it is back to normal and work tomorrow but it was lovely.
