That's a fair bit of work you had followed by the basal cell carcinoma removal.  Hope it goes smoothly.

I go in for a CT scan today.  After not weight bearing for 7 weeks I have to put full weight on my foot for the scan - I know it is going to be horrendously painful so not looking forward to it but I have my super strong painkillers nearby to take before we leave.

That is fabulous news Judy.  Your family was right, Chookie has definitely given you a huge boost.  It is so exciting to see how you are enjoying all the different meals.  Very well done Chookie, you are an amazing and caring friend.

DH actually found something at the bottom of the freezer - neither he nor I quite know exactly what it was.  Had it with brown rice and (believe it or not) hummus on the side.  The hummus was good!

K Atie, wave to us as you pass by the end of Smith Street when you go to Ikea tomorrow (if you go down Victoria Parade)

Mab, I hope you can manage enough nutritious food to help you put on weight - my gory 'putting on weight' story is stomach churning so don't read further if you (or anyone) is feeling queasy ... when I was young, before I got married, I was going out with a crofter's boy on the Isle of Lewis and had a lunch with the family one day - typical greasy fried food - with added liquid fat poured over the lot ... UGH!!!  I didn't go there for another meal.  It was fairly traditional for up there, though, as they never wasted anything (sheep's head soup anyone?) - every part of any animal slaughtered off the croft was used - hence haggis as well was more common than it is today.  They also lived a fairly rugged outdoor lifestyle and the weather was not always particularly warm so any food was always welcome.

I am at work again all day today - it seems like I am spending more time here than at home recovering.  Hopefully things will settle down this week when the guy who was on holiday returns to work.  Whilst I admit I am quite enjoying coming in to work, it is a good change from lying around in the bedroom, I am not sure it is aiding my recovery.

Experiments are always fun and just about always a success.  Chookie will be delighted to spoil you and glad that you are enjoying yourself Judy.

That is lovely, Chookie.  Their crew obviously appreciated and enjoyed your food.

Our favourite cafe - which just happens to be our next door neighbour - closes for good today so dinner will be whatever they have left at the end of the day.  Their food is always fresh and good quality and they will be sorely missed by many people up this end of our street.

I think rain is pretty close to you by now K Atie so get out those rain dance shoes and enjoy.

We have run out of all the soups people had given us as well as all the food I has stocked up in the freezer on prior to my operation so it was Thai take away last night - a fabulous pad Thai for me, green curry with beef for DH.

There is nothing like the sound of rain on the roof when you have gone through such a long dry spell. 

Many years ago, when we were in drought here, we had a French girl on work experience with us for a couple of months and when it started raining one night she and her housemates all came out and danced in the rain!

Your post just reminded me of my favourite winter mashed vege mix - potatoes, carrots and swede - I am going to have to wait a while before I have that again, unfortunately.
