Catch up.........

I am finally back online with the help of HS and how super annoying that it turns out there is a little wireless button on the front of the laptop that had accidently been clicked off and could of been fixed in an instant instead of taking 6 weeks and a tantrum from moi!!! I will know what to check first next time!
My boots, the ones to save me from wearing 'junners' have met an early death with one heel 'just falling off' last weekend, luckily I was at home. Not sure that I am meant to have fashionable footwear!!! I will return them when we are in Geelong again this week.
Speaking of Geelong SH has now had his first 2 chemo treatments and will have his 3rd this coming week. We are so lucky that so far he has tolerated them reasonably well with just a few small side effects. He has been able to go to work and has tried to exercise with a walk or modified gym program most days. I think he is looking tireder but he is determined to keep life as normal as possible between all the appointments. Just this week I think we have had 3 local appointments. He has started to lose his hair so I will need to look out his beanies this week....
I am now on holidays for 3 weeks!!!!! I need a rest and the 'horsey one' is on school holidays and needs some TLC. She also turns 18 next weekend, a milestone I am fighting, she is my 'baby'! We are having a lunch at our home to celebrate which we are catering for, a good idea at the time but at this stage we may 'only just ' make it!!!! I have no problems with the sweet goodies but at this stage not sure what they will be eating first! Think the 'horsey one' and I are testing the chocolate fountain this weekend - what a hardship that will be!!!!!
A little stitching has been happening , I make sure it comes out on each appointment. It is growing slowly but it is growing! I am doing the Fat Quarter Shop Mystery BOM again this year, not sure when I will find the time but looking forward to the first block arriving (I was a bit slow signing up!).
SH indulged me and made these Monte Carlo biscuits last weekend. They were super delicious. The recipe came from Julie Goodwin's 2nd cookbook. Wonder what we will bake this weekend???

It's good to hear everything is going ok with DH - well as good as can been expected. have been thinking of you both and praying all is well. Happy Birthday to your girl. I know the pain of a child turning 18. I hope she has a wonderful day. If you need help testing the chocolate fountain let me know...vbg. Enjoy your holidays and take it easy. You deserve a well earned rest.

Yes, good to hear the chemo is going okay. So often it seems worse that the C and can make it a miserable time. Sounds like DH has it in mind to keep strong so that will help.
Ah, yes it's tough when baby girl turns 18 - been there, done that!
Those bikkies sure look good, I may need to knock up a batch later. Rest up on your holidays and enjoy that crafting.

Cheers - Joolz

Next week is going to be cold in Geelong so you will need those boots -- can you take them back ? Hope so -- Good to hear that DH is tolerating the chemo, nasty stuff but necessary. Let me know if you want another stitcher while you are waiting.
