I bought the jam and covered the cake in marzipan.
Popped into Middleton and bought myself a notebook. It's one of my must have things for 1st January for all my 'plans' for the New Year.And these arrived in the post today. At the grand old age of 48 I'm going to see my first ballet in the New Year. Mum, my sis-in-law and niece are coming as well. I asked my sister but I was booking the tickets the day Roman had been admitted to hospital and it was too much for her to think about, which was understandable. I couldn't put the booking off though, trying to book 6 seats all together wasn't that easy and if we'd have waited we probably wouldn't have got them.
There is good news about Roman. His blood test results show the antibiotics he was put on as soon as he was admitted have worked and the infection has cleared up. So, he can come home, possibly tonight, if not tomorrow, but definitely in time for Christmas. It's amazing what a difference 24 hours can make.
And to finish off, a random photo of a candle, simply because I like the way the wax has dripped down.
