I am pre-empting myself, but by the time you read this, I will have had (Fates allowing) my second eye operation. Yay!! And I've had another crown put on a tooth in the meantime. My bank balance is teetering on the edge at the moment :=) Why are doctors and dentists so blithe with OUR money?
Sure, give me one of those extra-expensive dental crowns and yep, throw in a massive filling, and an expensive bone scan etc etc ... Grrrr! Let's hope next year is a lot less hard on the purse, emotions and mental health. Anyway, enough whingeing, my friends. Let's look at some good stuff, before we all descend into Christmas madness.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays of whatever sort you fancy! See you all in January, my friends! Have a marvellous and wonderful festive season.

In My Kitchen:
|there were Halloween biscuits
|there was homemade chicken soup
|and blanched green beans for the freezer

|and coffee drip bags from a coffee roaster down the coast
|there were Diwali sweets from our Fijian-Indian friend
|and another cute tumbler from Miss E. pottery
|I made blackberry compote for my porridge
|and I blanched cauliflower, which was heading to the freezer
|and I bought this online from a Japanese store in Sydney -
there is roasted sesame dressing, and a yuzu ponzu
