De afgelopen week heb ik voornamelijk in bed gelegen - de fibromyalgie mept me knap voor m'n kont op het moment - terwijl er allerlei heugelijke feiten te vieren waren!!
It's rather sad for this poor blog to be written on so little lately. Believe me, it's for the better. Otherwise this would become one pitysong after another and we don't want that, do we?
The last week I have been in bed for the most part - fibromyalgia is kicking my butt at the moment - while there were all kinds of joyful events to be celebrated!
The 9th was my big sister's birthday! We celibrated her day the sunday before with a nice dinner with the whole family. I was so glad I could join in. Francis baked a great cake too, soooo yummy. I will try to make this one myself too soon and when I do I will share it here , okay?
De 11e was mijn vader jarig. Door nieuwe medicijnen waar ik wáánzinnig ziek van geweest ben, kon ik hier helaas niet bij zijn, maar ik heb wel het cadeautje verzorgd, dus heb ik er toch een beetje deel van uit gemaakt.
The 11th was my dad's birthday. I couldn't make it to my parents' home for this, because I was rather ill, but I bought the present for him, so I kind of joined in in the festivities.
On the 13th Henk and I were married for 18 years exactly! I hoped to be fit enough to go out for the day, wanted to go to a German Christmas-market especially, but I was still too tired and weak and sick, so we'll have to do that some other time. I was very bummed out about this, because Henk isn't home for most special days and now he was. Hopefully I will get more chances to celibrate.
I can't and won't stay in bed this week, because I think it will make me feel even worse. To kick myself into gear I put up the christmastree today. I never had all the christmas-stuff around for so long and do nothing with them. Also I never put up and decorated the tree as fast as I did today. It's a bit minimalistic, a bit of red inside lots of gold, but it'll do. I don't have the energy to spend more time to it. Next year I'll do better.
Now you're up to spead again. Hopefully I will feel a bit better soon and will write more and a bit more cheerful. In case it will take more time than I would hope, I want to go ahead and wish you all a very merry holiday. I hope you will all have lots of luck, love and good health in the new year and will have a great holiday-season.
Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!!!
