Sorry to have deserted you all. It has been a very busy week both yarn wise and dentist and hospital wise.
I saw the consultant on Tuesday – it was a waste of time really as he said there is nothing that can be done for my right thumb. I had an operation on it about 10 years ago because it was arthritic. They removed some bone and built it up with tendons from my wrist. I t has now collapsed. He said he could try to fix it but it might mean that my thumb would be too bent for me to hold a pen!
The left thumb is now very arthritic and needs the same operation as the right one had but he stressed the risk of it collapsing. So I do not know what to do!
Last night we went to Smiths for dinner. I had Thai chicken skewers with crispy noodles followed by jumbo prawns in a chilli and garlic sauce and John had a whole dressed crab followed by a fillet steak. It was nice but rather rich…..I am just as happy with a piece of toast and peanut butter!
My brother and sister in law are coming to lunch on the 29th. I think I shall do monk fish wrapped in parma ham with crushed new potatoes and asparagus spears. That way I can cook it all when they have arrived as they are always late in arriving! And I shall make a chocolate roulade and fill it with chestnut puree and cream.
We have a contest winner….. Gemma knew that the answer is Rowan Felted Tweed Aran. Tomorrow I will start a new contest which will only have one question that will decide the winner…no long winded things!
Now I must go and get ready for the postman. Back tomorrow!
