Will we Won't we?

It is a nervous wait whilst we see what the weather will do in the next couple of days. Fingers crossed everything gets back to normal so we will be able to fly to UK. Meanwhile we are celebrating Christmas here today in Finland! The ham is cooked and carrot casserole, mashed potato and swede all done. Mud pie for pudding, not very traditional I know but my mother in law loves chocolate!
I will take this opportunity too to wish you all a wonderful Christmas, may those blood sugars be perfect and I look forward to an exciting 2010!

Some answers

Well I got the freezer defrosted , Aleksi's blood sugars behaved very well today(at least) and yes it got colder ,-18 this morning as I waited for the bus to take me to Helsinki for my eye appointment. It seems my eye problems may stem from the chronic sinus problems I have and which showed up beautifully on the MRI scan. I got to see my brain today - it was so amazing! The doctor said it looked perfect which pleased me no end.
I still haven't solved my wool storage problems and have come to the conclusion that one can never have enough wool!!
Also I have just noticed I am nearing 100 posts - I feel a 'giveaway' coming on.......

Too many questions

I have so many questions going through my head at the moment and I have no idea where to start!
  • Have I bought Christmas gifts for all those people I need to get gifts for?
  • Did I really buy up half of Amazon's stock!?
  • Have I forgotten anyone off my Christmas card list?
  • What will happen at the eye clinic tomorrow when I see the neuro opthamologist?
  • Do we start using the insulin pump with Aleksi?
  • Will Aleksi's blood sugar settle down a bit? (please!)
  • Will we get to UK for Christmas without too much hassle? (strikes permitting)
  • Can it possibly get any colder? (-16 C at the moment)
  • While it's this cold will I get chance to defrost the freezer?
  • Where can I store all my wool!?
  • Do I have enough wool!?

Not earth shattering stuff I know but these things niggle away sometimes. Some are easily answered, others we just have to wait for the answer and some take a lot of time, talking, advice and support from friends before we know the answer.
And tomorrow, more questions and hopefully some answers too!

Big sigh

Well I survived the 5 day Naisten JouluMessut - one of the first Christmas fairs in Helsinki, helped along by lovely stall neighbours and I am pleased to say it was very much worth it. The pincushions were very popular and my alien population is severely depleted. I like to think however, that they will all be having a ball in their new homes! I have a couple of new aliens and viruses to make so can't quite put my feet upjust yet. Then I need to start planning my next fair in March - not so far away........
