Normally the 5th of December is a fun day in the Netherlands,
we celebrate "Sinterklaas" : a real feast for the children
(who get lots of presents )
This year it was nót such a fun day ..... in the morning :
I fell of the stairs, at home ...
just three steps
but that was enough for so much pain
that I couldn't get up again.
In the hospital
it turned out that nor pubis neither pelvis were broken
At home again Man got the chair with little wheels downstairs
(that normally stands in front of the computer)
so now I'm carting around on or behind it
(I went upstairs on my bum to get here)
Luckily daughter and the three grandchildren
came down to us
(instead of the other way round)
Hurray ..... we still could celebrate !!!
misfortune seldom comes alone :
the next day, two grandchildren and I got the flu !
Before all this ... I had started with the seahorse and fish
for the Chistmas Fair
It's fun to see how much felt shrinks, by looking at the two fish
almost dry ... ánd the same size
Today I just felt a bit better,
felted another sea horse
(sitting on a chair and wheeling around to collect the stuff I needed)
