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.

Our friend who has been keeping us 'topped up' with delicious soups for the past few weeks came in with the most delicious corn chowder on Friday - we managed to stretch it out over a couple of nights, but finished it off last night.  DH is anxious for me to be up on my feet again so I can make it myself - that's not going to happen for several more weeks yet, unfortunately.

Cookie, very exciting. Have you decided on your first trip. ?
I am sure Cookie would be sorely tempted to make a trip over to Victoria, via Adelaide!!!

You sound very brave, Mab, I wish I had your strength and fortitude.

I don't think DH and I will need to cook for at least the rest of the time we are on our break up here in Guildford.  Our neighbour bought over a huge pot of pumpkin soup, then a friend bought over more pumpkin soup, several foccacia halves and cake (they were the left overs from her DH's 60th birthday).  We had been invited but due to their circumstances (I would not have been able to get in on my knee scooter), we got to enjoy it yesterday instead.

Mab, vertigo is horrible, take it easy and have positive thoughts - they say that helps, I am not sure of that, but it certainly cannot hinder.  Take care

Have a great mini-holiday, Cookie.  I was thinking about your new motor home just the other week and wondered if you had received it yet or not - something exciting to look forward to.

I escaped today - we have headed up to Guildford for a few days' break.  I hadn't realised restricting it was to be tied to the bedroom.  Whilst DH was loading the car - I stood outside our shop for about 10 minutes, just enjoying seeing people on the street and breathing the fresh air.  Wonderful! 

Back to the bedroom later in the week (another three weeks non weight bearing), but it is so so good to see different walls, if only for a couple of days.

Thanks for the follow up Chookie and Cookie.

I am on a TM31, Chookie so cannot access Cookidoo, but thanks for the suggestion.

I know we have one of Yoke's books somewhere, Cookie, I will try to find it and see what I can find.

My DH is wanting to make a loaf of sourdough bread for our friend who has been sending us soups to cheer me up whilst I am stuck in my bed.  She is gluten free.  DH's sourdough starter is 100% rye.  Can anyone help him with suggestions / ideas / recipes please?  Many thanks.

I made an apple cake today and then broke I trying to turn it over. Iím sure it will taste nice.
I am of the firm opinion that that is what happens as soon as you put it in your mouth anyway so it is just a seamless route, from plate to enjoyment without anything in between!!

One of our lovely customers bought in some of her leek and pear soup for DH and myself.  Earlier in the week she bought in some 'golden' soup, full of lovely nutritious ingredients.  She is a truly lovely person.  Many customers have also been asking for me which is very heart warming.

Well done to your DD, KAtie.

I got my stitches out today - 3 wounds and c. 15 or so stitches altogether.  Everything is looking good.  The surgeon is very pleased.  I now am back in my moon boot and have individual wound dressings on as well as a compression sock which I can take off on Sunday at which time I can also remove the wound dressings.  Still not weight bearing for another four weeks but the strict elevation directions have been lessened.  I am beginning to start feeling normal again, but there is still a long healing process to go - months, not weeks!  Maybe I will be back to 'real' normal in c. 12 months with luck and if I am good with my physio. :)

Lucky Probus ladies!  I would love to hear how the vegan scones turned out.

That was an awful reaction to your flu shot, Cookie.  Hope you are settling down again.

I have just about finished all my medication now, just the drugs for DVT which I will be on for another couple of weeks.  I am very lucky, I have had hardly any pain so have lots of very strong painkillers that I have never used (maybe I could make some profit going down the road and selling them to unsavoury characters!).  No, wouldn't do that.

I am surviving the lazy bit and will have a hard time when my life gets back to normal and I actually have to get up in the morning and go to work!  At the moment even getting up and having a shower leaves me totally drained - not a fun sensation.  DH has been fantastic, not only looking after me and dreaming up tasty food (I have totally lost my appetite) but also running the business - I couldn't survive without him.
