Just popped in to say Merry Christmas to everybody. I have not been here for some time. I have been very busy as I am now back at work for two days a week and seem to be flat out the rest of the time. I have had a crazy year. My younger brother died in March. Which was not really unexpected but he was only 47 years old. In April I started cycling with a passion and in June I crashed my bike and tore my ACL in my right leg. I had to have surgery to fix this. I was barely off the crutches when I discovered I had kidney cancer. I had to have the right kidney removed. I think I am finally getting back on my feet and I am really hoping 2017 will be a better year. I hope you all have a fabulous 2017 as well.

Ohmygoodness, Alice, you'd be well pleased to see the back of 2016! Things surely have to look up for you in 2017!

Merry Christmas, Alice. Maybe you are "through" for awhile. So sorry for the loss of your dear one. When I had my Horrible Year (like the Queen), I learned to pray, Lord, I know you won't give me more than I can handle, but could you maybe just ease back a little right now, I'm pushing my limit. Blessings on you.
