Monday Magic – Inspiring Blogs for You! #Christmas #December

Well here we are, friends, in December and I cannot believe just how the year has flown by.  There are plenty of fantastic Blogmas posts that have begun to appear in the blogosphere, but I am resisting the urge to share just Christmas posts….yet!

We had our first Christmas night out last week with our local book club.  My hubby Duncan and I meet with like minded friends once a month in the local pub and have a very informal, often funny, chat about the book that we have all read the previous month…..or not in the case of Duncan!  Actually that’s probably not fair – sometimes other people haven’t read the book either!!  No, seriously, he has read a couple in the past.  Anyway this month – with a meal out being on the menu – we found ourselves accompanied by the eldest and yougest kids…..the middle one probably would have come too if he had not been at uni.  I was worried that book club might think they were being overtaken by the Bendy family, but they were happy for the engineer and lovely girl to join us – particularly when the student engineer found a voucher for 30% off.  He even chose the book for December – which I have purchased on audible in the hope that hubby might get to the end of it if he can listen whilst walking the dogs.

 

I was incredulous when in the space of 10 days I received two hospital appointment cancellation letters – one rheumatology and one cardiology.  But then I had a CT scan appointment for my shoulder out of the blue scheduled the week before Christmas, NHS at 7.20pm.  I had no idea appointments were ever scheduled this late!!  Today I had a phone call for an orthopaedic appointment – so where I have lost two, I have gained another two…..don’t worry that they are different speciality.

Currently the student engineer is pacing the room ahead of a telephone interview/coding test this afternoon – and another with facebook later this week.  The prospect of interviews and work in the real world are suddenly very real – so how does mum calm down a very nervous adult son, who seems to be talking in a foreign language when describing what is expected of him.  I feel old!

Without further witterings, I introduce blog posts for this week.  The first post from the lovely Angela is not a conventional wish list and it would be lovely if you would join in – please let Angela or me know what you are taking from her list!  Sheryl’s December prompts on A Chronic Voice are listed below – again I look forward to reading your responses.  For those in the UK don’t miss the post for reserving your ticket for the Bloggers Bash in London in the New Year – hope to see you there.

So for now sit down with your cuppa – or maybe you have started on the mulled wine – and enjoy some great blog posts!
