Medical miracle

I'm sharing this for those of my friends not in the UK and not part of any social media sites: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-26784669

Even the BBC newsreaders struggled to maintain their composure when reporting on this lady. Imagine being profoundly deaf from birth then reaching 39 years of age, having a cochlear implant and finally being able to hear. I said to Ian last night, imagine the music she'll be playing. I'd recommend Over the Rainbow by Eva Cassidy and The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face by Roberta Flack, some harp music then the whole back catalogue of The Beatles. Ian said he'd play her some Bob Dylan.

I've always appreciated what I have and today I'm even more thankful that I've had all my senses for almost 60 years. My daughter HFH on social media yesterday posted: "We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have."

New Year plans (GB)

It's New Year's Eve and I'm going to be busy all day. I've to hit the shops in St Peter's Ave at 9am, as I'm meeting Ian at the cinema at 9.45. After the film we're popping into my Mum's, hopefully to coincide with my sister who's fetching sandwiches. Then we're off to the Old Library to visit Ian's Mum, then down the road to Ian's daughter's to visit his youngest grandson Lucas. Then we're coming back here for a meal of sweet & sour chicken (with rice for me, chips for him) and a wine for him and a Malibu for mesmiley - drunk

All the best for 2014 to all my friends and readers, thanks for your company this year and looking forward to more of the same in 2014smiley - magic

Yesterday doing Mum's shopping I bought all the ingredients required to make a couple of desserts (hardly anyone likes smiley - xmaspud in my family and our Christmas cake is usually smiley - choc). I'll be making a lemon meringue pie and a trifle to take for afters. I'm also buying a smiley - chocChristmas cake from my local bakery, chocolate sponge shaped like a Christmas tree all covered in chocolate and with Xmassey decorationssmiley - drool

I'm really feeling in a festive mood now, I've even dug out my Christmas cds so I can listen to them in the car.
