Countdown: 6

With six days to go to Steve's next hospital assessment, retail therapy really came into its own today as a way of distracting ourselves from the stress of waiting to know what's going on inside his body. And it help us make a big step forward on the festive preparations.

We found the perfect presents for some of the family as well some little somethings for a number of friends.  As a result, we are feeling rather pleased with ourselves even though there's still a long way to go before we can relax, knowing that everything is under control.  Is it ever?

The Christmas wreath went on the front door this evening to welcome visitors over the festive season.  More cards have been printed and, with a bit of luck, some might be written tomorrow morning in time to catch the lunchtime post.  

The mantlepiece is now full of cards and we have enjoyed reading the first few letters to arrive and catching up with friend's news from the last 12 months.  What will tomorrow's post bring, I wonder?
