TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

What most of you know, I got sick the day after my mammogram. At first I thought it was just a reaction from the nerves and stress, but after two weeks now, I think I got sick for real;)

But Christmas will still come.



The third Sunday of Advent Mum and I went to Church to “The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols”
It is nine different reading from the Bible, read by people from the community and a lot of Carols, song buy a choir and the congregation.
It is the first time out Church did that, and it was an amazing and beautiful experience.
Our ”new” priest Line (the one that buried Dad) had arranged it and Mum went and hugged her when it was over. On the way home, Mum and I decided it could be a new tradition for us, if the Church does it again.

I guess I spend most of the next week being sick, with an on and off fever, which is not that good for me, as my white blood cells are not doing that great after the chemo..one of the lovely side effects you have to get used too;)

But I wrote a lot of Christmas cards and wrapped a lot of presents, and spend time with Mom.
The Forth Sunday in Advent, Mum and I got invited to coffee at my Bro and SIL. SIL was going to cut Mums hair, so they decided to make an afternoon of it.


Sarah and Thea

After Mum had her hair cut, Bro decided that SIL could cut my hair too. I really needed it, but I didn’t want to ask her, but she said yes….she has worked as a hairdresser for ten years, before she changed her job some years ago….


Thea took this pic of me after my haircut - I am sad to say this is what I look like..

Monday Mum came for dinner here, pork chops and curry rice, with a salad made from baby leaves, clementine and spring onions, it was great;)

Tuesday I worked myself up to a panic attack just before I had to leave to go grocery shopping with Mum..thank god nothing bad happened..I´ve just been so stressed I think, so suddenly I just panicked when I had to leave home…but I did, and things went well,,,though I went to bed early that night;)

Wednesday Mum was looking after Rebecca and Benedicte, and I was invited to join. So I brought candy canes and stuff and we made Christmas decorations until the girls had to go home.


Benedicte making Christmas stuff


Rebecca relaxing

I stayed for dinner, Mum made an old traditional Danish dish named “æbleflæsk”. Basically it is some streaky bacon, cooked with onions and apples that you eat with rye bread…we only get it around Christmas and it is delicious;)

Yesterday I had physiotherapy, the last session this year….I gave my therapist and the secretary a charm each that I had made for them.
Then Mum bought me a Christmas tree!!!


My Christmas tree so far

After we got the tree into the car we went to an old farmhouse, that sell a lot of different Christmas stuff.
Mum bought a tiny doll as every year and I bought different pixis..it is a tradition Dad started years ago, and Mum and I want to honour it.
I have received a lot of wonderful Christmas cards and presents.
I hope that I have mailed all of you to thank you…from both Mum and me..


My Christmas cards♥

Today Mum and I will honour the Dead, meaning going to the cemeteries for Dad, Mums Mum and Dad, my great grand father and My Marie♥ - remember my soul mate that died 16 years ago just before Christmas….
I’ll be decorating my tree later today and then Mum and Balder will be over in the evening for a Before-Christmas….

Christmas Eve the 24th - as we celebrate here in Denmark, will be spend with Mum, Bro, SIL, Sarah and Thea - so more pictures after that;)

Sorry to hear that you haven't been well. I know of 4 people here who have had the vomiting bug sweeping parts of the UK, I just pray I don't get it - not just because of my sickness phobia but also because my weakened immune will mean it could take months for me to feel better.

I hope that you feel better before Christmas day.

Your pictures are beautiful as are you. ♥

Many thanks for you card and the lovely pic of Jared that arrived today. *Love and hugs to you and your mum* xx
