December 19th

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!

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about your thumb, Jannette. My first thought was whether it would affect your knitting. Instead of using a pen, would you able to use the space bar on the computer?

  2. Yes, I could but I would not be able to do up buttons, get money out of my purse, tie laces and so on. It is surprising how much you use your thumb! I would not be able to knit as I could not hold the needles!

  3. V bad luck about your thumb, and I can quite see why you are undecided about a similar operation on the other one.
    Glad to hear, however, that you are another fan of toast and peanut butter! It was my staple diet before I got married years ago and had to have a ‘proper supper’, but I was much thinner on it than I am now!
