The Year Is Ending On A Good Note.

 A run through of what’s been happening.

I have been doing Farmers Markets with the Buffalo Meat

The meat has been really selling well, 

I have three more to do before Christmas, but of course it means if I am out and about doing farmers markets 

I have had my surgery yipppppeeeeee

I am now a month post surgery and recovering well getting back to normal, it’s a bit of a pain having to travel to Cardiff to see the surgeon, but there we go it’s done and I really hope I never ever go through that again. 

I am no longer having constant pressure headaches, not having to sleep  the days away is wonderful, tinnitus is gone most of the time, balance and coordination is coming back. 

I did lose 28 lbs pre surgery put a few ponds on in the following couple of weeks but have dropped it again. Losing the weight has made a vast improvement to my COPD. 

I am still having tests looking for the cause of high cranial pressure and I hope the find the cause and can treat it before another leak occurs. 

I won’t go through the details of the surgery here but if you want to know I have done some you tube videos on my CSF leak. 

We have been moving on with the building work and this week I hope the scaffold comes down for the last time, I now have a lovely walk in Pantry, this video show my pantry off.

I have been taking it easy recovering I have been getting the last of the canning done from poly tunnel produce


I also got a bargain of 6 pineapples for £1 so they got canned this week too.

I picked the first Satsuma of the Year too from the poly tunnel

There are still more to come and we should both have a satsuma for Christmas  

I am getting back to crafting as well, I did run a workshop the other week

They were making draught excluders with Applique robins.

I have had my loom out again and getting some weaving done, using up lots of scrap ends of yarn.

It is so lovely to spend time in the evening doing some crafts in front of the fire while listening to a audiobook  at the moment I am listening to The Allotment girls  

It is lovely to feel almost normal again, and do normal things. I am planning to get out on my bike again soon, had a trial run around the field with Martin surpervising did lose my balance but I plan to be out properly on it in a few weeks, although we have snow forcast next week that might postpone it a bit. 

I am really looking forward to 2023 we have lots of plans having both suffered with health issues over the past couple of years it has made us take stock and descions on the future but that is a long way off heat we are still only part way through our adventure here.

stay safe and warm everyone.
